What to Know
The Texas Tech Red Raiders and the Texas Longhorns are set to clash at 12:30 p.m. ET Thursday at Sprint Center in the second round of the Big 12 Conference Tourney. Texas Tech is limping into the matchup on a four-game losing streak.
The Red Raiders lost a heartbreaker to the Kansas Jayhawks when they met in February, and they left with a heavy heart again on Saturday. It was close but no cigar for Texas Tech as they fell 66-62 to Kansas. Texas Tech’s loss came about despite a quality game from guard Davide Moretti, who had 18 points in addition to five boards.
Meanwhile, Texas found themselves the reluctant recipients of an unpleasant 81-59 punch to the gut against the Oklahoma State Cowboys on Saturday. Guard Andrew Jones had a pretty forgettable game, finishing with only nine points on 3-for-11 shooting in his 33 minutes on the court.
Texas Tech came up short against Texas when the two teams last met earlier in the regular season, falling 68-58. A big part of the Red Raiders’ success was guard Jahmi’us Ramsey, so the Longhorns will need to focus on keeping him in check if they want to improve their luck.
