Texas Tech Wins Big Over LSU, 77-64.

The Red Raider are now 15-6 (3-5).

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

Tech returned home today for the SEC/Big 12 Challenge against the LSU Tigers. LSU is not that good of a team this year so this was a game where a loss hurts you way more than a win helps. The Red Raiders played a great first half that included only two turnovers and ten three pointers. At the break Tech lead 39-27. The second half looked a lot like the first with the Red Raiders maintaining a double digit lead the entire way.

Game Notes:

  • The word on Twitter was Kennan Evans was out with an injury that happened at the end of the Baylor game.
  • Texas Tech was 12 of 23 from the three point arc. You can win a lot of games shooting like that, but nothing I would depend on every night.
  • Zach Smith was at it again! He had 25 points and 8 boards. This was a new career high.

Next up the Red Raiders will travel to Austin for a very important road game against the Longhorns on Wednesday at 7:00.
