Halftime update: Texas Tech controlling the action with everyone watching

A late Texas three brings the lead back down to single digits.

NCAA Basketball: Texas Tech at Texas John Gutierrez-USA TODAY Sports

The Red Raiders have come into this Big Monday game on the main ESPN channel with a plethora of NBA scouts also watching and have showed the nation the type of defensive team that they are. Tech had as large as a 15-point lead in the first half and though Texas has cut the lead down to nine, Tech is still fully in control.

Matt Mooney leads all scorer with 11, while Deshawn Corprew has helped break out of scoring slumps with seven points and has added six rebounds. Not only that but Tariq Owens set the school record for single season blocks.

Tech still has to bring it for another 20 minutes in order to complete the first sweep of the Longhorns since 1996. Coach Beard has the tools to make sure that happens.
