OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Natalie Ventress and Zahna Medly scored 18 points each as seventh-seeded TCU defeated No. 10 seed Texas Tech 75-59 in the first round of the Big 12 tournament on Friday night.

TCU (18-13) will face off against No. 7 and second-seeded West Virginia (27-3) in the quarterfinals on Saturday. The Horned Frogs dropped two contests against the Mountaineers in regular-season play.

The Lady Raiders (6-24) led by one point at the half and the game remained within a four-point margin until a run by TCU 9 minutes after the break.

The Horned Frogs were up by one midway through the second and exploded on a 14-0 run - holding Texas Tech scoreless for 6 minutes - to go up by 15 with just over 7 minutes to play.

Amber Battle scored 23 points to lead the Lady Raiders and Ivonne Cook-Taylor added 18 points.
