The Texas Tech men's basketball team is trying to get back in the win column when they make the trip up to Stillwater, Oklahoma.  This game will have a little more edge to it than usual as Oklahoma State's guard Marcus Smart will return to the court after his three game suspension.  Smart was suspended for pushing a Texas Tech fan back on February 8th and has not played since.  In that game Tubby Smith and company were able to hold on in Lubbock by a final score of 65-61.

That brings us to Saturday's matchup.  Both these teams will be looking to get back on track as Oklahoma State comes in on a seven game losing streak.  Their last win came back on January 25th with a 81-75 win over West Virginia.  As for the Red Raiders they are also on a losing streak although it is just two games.  They will be trying to bounce back after a tough last second loss to #8 Kansas this week.

Now with a win over the Cowboys, Texas Tech would at least be tied for seventh place in the Big 12 and move to two games under .500 at 6-8 in conference play.  It would be the first time since 2008 that the Red Raiders have won six conference games in a season. Tip off for Saturday's game is set for 12:30pm from Stillwater, Oklahoma as Tech looks to win in Gallagher-Iba Arena the first time since 2003.
