There have been plenty of times this season when Texas Tech has played well enough to beat anyone, but there have also been games where the No. 22 Red Raiders have just flat failed to punch in.
Expect Texas Tech to bring its lunch pail and a bit of anger to the court, and maybe even a little better shooting, when its hosts suddenly surging Texas on Saturday afternoon in Lubbock, Texas, in a key Big 12 Conference game for both teams.
Texas Tech (18-10, 9-6 Big 12) heads home after a 65-51 loss to Oklahoma on Tuesday in Oklahoma City. The setback snapped a two-game win streak for the Red Raiders, who came into the game off a 30-point win at Iowa State and after capturing five of six their past six outings.
