The Idaho State women’s basketball team made a strong case for an upset win, but the Texas Tech Lady Raiders took advantage of last-minute Bengal fouls and desperation 3s to sneak away with the win, 79-64.
Senior forward Anna Policicchio led the Bengals with 19 points and seven boards before fouling out with 1:08 left in the fourth quarter. Junior guard Brooke Blair and senior guard Apiphany Woods also finished in double figures with 16 and 15 points, respectively.
“It’s hard for me to be really upset about this one because there were so many positives,” said head coach Seton Sobolewski. “At one point in the first half I realized all five players on the floor weren’t on our team last year, and they were hanging with a Big 12 team.”
