This year's Lady Raiders hold an impressive 21-4 record. They've only lost to one Big 12 team, TCU. Before losing to TCU recently, The Lady Raiders were on a 13 match winning streak. (The only other teams to beat the Lady Raiders were: #1 Florida, #2 UNC and #8 Auburn). The Lady Raiders have the chance to meet TCU again in the semifinals on Saturday. If the Lady Raiders are on top of their game, they have a great shot at taking the Big 12 tournament title.
