The Red Raiders (10-3) broke a two-game losing streak, which came by a combined 31 points to Loyola (Chicago) and Houston down in Las Vegas.  They now turn their focus to Big 12 play, which starts with a home game Saturday against the #11 ranked Texas Longhorns.

"There are some things we need to get better at - obviously taking care of the basketball," Texas Tech head coach Tubby Smith said.  "We can't turn it over 19 times against Texas or anybody else and expect to win."

Tipoff for their match up against the Longhorns is set for Saturday at 1pm from the United Supermarkets Arena in Lubbock and can be seen on ESPNU.
