Texas Tech is making one last push at getting back into the discussion for March and will have another chance to make a statement when they welcome in the #3 Oklahoma Sooners on Wednesday.
Texas Tech has knocked off back to back ranked opponents and will look to complete the trifecta, as they are now 15-9 and in 7th in the Big 12.
Oklahoma sits 1.5 games back of first place Kansas and comes in after falling to them in a crucial home loss on Saturday.
The Sooners had their chance to really jump right into the mix for the top spot in the Big 12 when Kansas visited them on Saturday.
Oklahoma just couldn’t do enough, especially down the stretch, as they dropped a big home game that will likely force them to win out if they home to claim the title. They do just 1.5 games back, but Kansas does own the tiebreaker, making things much more difficult in terms of passing them.
Buddy Hield has hit one of his very first shooting slumps as he’s struggled over the past 2 games.
Hield has shot 12 of 33 over the last 2. Still, the likely Player of the Year has recorded 23 points or more in 5 of his past 6 games.
The Sooners took it to the Red Raiders back on 1/26 as they routed them 91-67 in Oklahoma.
The Red Raiders are getting themselves back into the discussion, but a win here would certainly really throw things over the top.
Texas Tech has back to back wins over Iowa State at home and then followed that up with an upset win over Baylor on the road.
Keenan Evans has his best game in a Red Raiders uniform as the sophomore guard, who averages just 8.5 points per game, put in a career best 21 points. Also contributing to the cause was Devaugntah Williams, who leads the team with 12 points per game.
Texas Tech will have to certainly lock down defensively in this one as the Sooners are one of the best teams in the conference in terms of offense. Oklahoma averages 82 points per game and likes to turn games into track meets, which doesn’t fall into Tech’s gameplan. Slowing it down and getting to the rim is the kind of game the Red Raiders need here.

Free CBB Prediction:
Texas Tech has played exceptionally well lately, but this Sooners team is just too tough to handle.
Oklahoma made a fool of them in the meeting in OU and this one shouldn’t be any different. The Sooners should have no problem getting out in transition and getting some easy buckets in this one.
