Barncastle helps Texas Tech women end 5-game skid 

Jordan Barncastle scored 19 points, including a key three-point play with 24 seconds left, to help No. 21 Texas Tech end a five-game skid with a 75-71 victory over Texas on Saturday.

Texas led for just the second time in the game after free throws by Ashleigh Fontenette made it 71-70 with 48 seconds to play. Barncastle's offensive rebound and put back moments later gave the Lady Raiders the lead again, and a corner three by Texas' Chassidy Fussell bounced off the side of the backboard with 9 seconds left.

Texas Tech (15-5, 3-5 Big 12 Conference) avoided a six-game conference losing streak for the third consecutive year. The Lady Raiders were ranked as high as No. 10 after a 14-0 start.

Fussell scored 19 for Texas (13-7, 3-5).
