LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) -- LaToya Davis scored 23 points to lead five Texas Tech starters in double figures as the Lady Raiders defeated Texas 84-63 Wednesday night.
It was only the second time this season all five starters scored in double figures for Tech. The win was the most one-sided victory for Tech against Texas since February 2000 when the Lady Raiders won 73-44 in Lubbock.
Davis and Erin Grant each had double-doubles for Tech (10-9, 5-3 Big 12). David had 11 rebounds to go with her 23 points and Grant had 10 points and 11 assists.
Alesha Robertson had 21 points. Brooke Baughman added a career-high 16 points and Erin Myrick scored 12.
Tech used second-half runs of 15-5 and 9-0 to pull away 66-43 with 9:40 left in the game.
Tiffany Jackson had a double-double for Texas (11-8, 5-4) with 19 points and 12 rebounds and was the only Longhorn to score in double digits.
The Longhorns shot 21-for-53 from the field (40 percent) while the Lady Raiders connected on 29-for-57 ( 51 percent).
Tech also had 20 assists to Texas' nine.
Early in the first half, the Lady Raiders took advantage of a four-minute scoring drought by the Longhorns to go on a 12-0 run and take a 12-2 lead with more than 15 minutes remaining in the half.
Texas Tech then went more than five minutes without a field goal later in the first half, but Texas couldn't shave Tech's lead to less than five points. The Lady Raiders led 35-26 at the half.
