Texas Tech senior Brittany Brewer recorded the program's first triple-double in 22 years on Sunday, helping push the Lady Raiders past Louisiana-Monroe, 83-38, and move to 10-0 for the first time in eight seasons.

Brewer recorded 12 points, 14 rebounds and an NCAA-record-tying 16 blocks for the first triple-double of her career and eighth in program history. Brewer's 16 blocks, not only tied the NCAA record, but shattered the previous school record for blocks, which was 10.

Three other Lady Raiders finished the day in double figure scoring, led by freshman Alexis Tucker with 18 points and six rebounds. Junior Maka Jackson also recorded a career high 16 points on the day. Lexi Gordon recorded her second double-figure game at Tech with 11 points and five boards.

Chrislyn Carr helped spark the Texas Tech offense in the first quarter, scoring six points in the period to push Tech to a 17-6 lead after one. The Lady Raiders were stout defensively from the tip, holding Louisiana-Monroe to 11.1 percent field goal shooting (2-for-18) in the first.

Texas Tech went on a 13-0 run midway through the second period to stretch its lead to 29. Jackson added six points in the frame to go along with two steals. The Lady Raiders also shot 16 free throws in the quarter, hitting 13 of their attempts.

Tech added to its lead in the third, leading by as many as 31 points and winning the quarter, 15-8. In the fourth, Brewer added four blocks and four points to lock up the triple-double and hold the Warhawks at bay.
