(AP) LUBBOCK, Texas - Chynna Brown scored 20 points Saturday night to help Texas Tech beat No. 23 Kansas 70-63.

Brown, who was 8 of 13 from the floor, added four assists and four steals. Casey Morris chipped in 16 points for the Lady Raiders (14-4, 4-2 Big 12), who now lead the all-time series with Kansas 15-5.

Chelsea Gardner led the Jayhawks (11-5, 2-3) with 18 points and 13 rebounds off the bench. Kansas had not played since Sunday’s 82-60 loss to No. 1 Baylor.

Kansas took its only lead, 48-47, on Angel Goodrich’s jumper with 12:11 to play, but Brown scored the next five points on two jumpers and a free throw to put Texas Tech ahead for good. The Jayhawks pulled within 65-63 on a Carolyn Davis free throw with 1:20 to play, but Kansas wouldn’t score again. Texas Tech sealed the victory with five free throws in the final minute.
