Tech began the game strong, however Buffalo has fought all the way back to make it a close one.

As this second round game between Texas Tech & Buffalo began, Tech looked to be in complete control jumping out to a 19-6 lead. However since then, Buffalo has gone on a few runs to cut the lead down to eight at half.

Jarrett Culver leads the way, as always, with eight points and five rebounds and Norense Odiase has been big on the boards himself with nine rebounds. The Bulls have been led by veteran big man Nick Perkins off the bench with 11 points and guard Davonta Jordan with eight points of his own.

The Red Raiders have 20 more minutes to punch their ticket to the Sweet 16 or see their season end.
