Texas Tech Falls 83-74 To Oklahoma

The Texas Tech Red Raider basketball team suffered another heart breaking loss as they fell 83-74 last night to Oklahoma from the Lloyd Noble Center. The loss officially made the Red Raiders the worst team, record wise, in the Big 12 Conference.

The Red Raiders did have a solid night from their senior leadership. John Roberson led the way for Tech as he finished with 21 points. Fellow Seniors Mike Singletary and Brad Reese combined for 25 points in the loss. Though the scoring wasn’t there, Tech did have their best night of rebounding as they out rebounded the Sooners and had a season high 16 offensive rebounds. The Red Raiders struggled though as they turned the ball over 20 times in the loss.

Senior guard Cade Davis (right) led the way for the Sooners in the win as he tied his career high with 25 points. Sophomore Andrew Fitzgerald added 20 in the win for OU, who used the victory to snap their 12 game losing streak in the Big 12.

The loss dropped the Red Raiders to 8-11 on the season and 0-4 in Big 12 play. The loss also extended the Red Raiders’ losing streak to 11 in the Big 12 regular season. The current streak dates all the way back to February 13th with a loss to rival Texas A&M, here in Lubbock. Tech did beat Colorado in the Big 12 Tournament, but the win doesn’t apply to their current streak. The win improved the Sooners to 9-9 on the season and 1-3 in the Big 12. The win also means the Sooners are no longer at the bottom of the conference as Tech is the only team left with no Big 12 victories.

The Red Raiders will look to break that current losing streak on Saturday when they play host to Big 12 North opponent Iowa State. The Red Raiders and the Cyclones will tip off Saturday evening at 6:30, from the United Spirit Arena.
