NCAA Basketball: Texas Tech at Baylor Ray Carlin-USA TODAY Sports

Getting a win on the road against the Bears is a tall order for any team this year. By far Baylor is the most talented team we have played and they will be a legitimate number one seed come tourney time. Tech started the game a little shaky on both sides of the ball and even had a shot clock violation on their first possession. After Tech found themselves down twelve points they picked up the pace led by Justin Gray. At the break Tech trailed 32-31. The second half was tight the entire way, but the fouls were adding up at a furious pace. With around eight minutes to play Livingston, Temple, Smith, and Ross all had four fouls. I was proud of Tech’s effort because they never quit fighting and never let Baylor pull away. Baylor won the game, but Tech made them earn every bit of it.

And so the quest for a quality road win goes on...

Next up the Red Raiders welcome in LSU for the Big 12/SEC Challenge on Saturday at 1:00.
