HIGHLIGHTS: No. 7 Texas Tech - Iowa State 76-58

Lubbock is officially the new “Dunk City”

NCAA Basketball: Iowa State at Texas Tech Michael C. Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

It was another spectacular night at the United Supermarket Arena on Wednesday, as Texas Tech earned its twentieth victory of the season defeating Iowa State, maintaining the lead in the Big 12 tied with Kansas, and avenging the 18-point loss suffered in the away game.

Supported by a noisy and participant crowd, the Red Raiders had a game with many faces, as they led by seven points at the halftime (39-32), allowed the Cyclones to close the gap (45-44), but found the strength to find a good run and win the game.

Like in the game against TCU, the Red Raiders put up a collective effort to win the game, as 11 players had time on the court -and we saw again in action Malik Ondigo, who missed last two games-, three scored more than ten points, and six had two or more assists.

The best scorer of the night was freshman guard Zhaire Smith, who also delighted the crowd with some amazing dunks. Don’t you want to see them again?
