Texas Tech Snap a Three Game Losing Steak with a 60-54 Win Over TCU
Tubby Smith and the Texas Tech Red Raiders got their season back on track this past weekend as they swept the season series against TCU. The Red Raiders struggled shooting the ball, but forced 20 turnovers by the Horned Frogs on their way to a 60-54 victory on Saturday afternoon.
TCU led most of the game, in large part to Kyan Anderson’s 22 points and five rebounds, before the Red Raiders pulled away late in the second half. Dejan Kravic scored a season-high 18 points and grabbed six rebounds while Jaye Crockett added 15 points, six rebounds, and a career-best five assists for the Tech.
With the win, Texas Tech has already matched its Big 12 victory total from last season, with nine conference games remaining. They are now 11-11 on the year and 3-6 in Big 12 play. The road doesn’t get any easier for Texas Tech as their next opponent is the #19 ranked Oklahoma State Cowboys. That game is not until next Saturday though, with tip off set for 8:30pm from the United Spirit Arena in Lubbock and can be seen on ESPNU.
