Texas Tech Out To Prove They Are Best In Big 12

The Big 12 might be the most well-rounded, hotly contested conference in all of college basketball. In a shocking turn of events, it is the Texas Tech Red Raiders who will be in search of the top spot in the conference when they visit the Oklahoma Sooners and superstar Trae Young on Tuesday.

Shark Bites
  • The visiting team is 0-6 ATS in the last 6 games in this matchup.
  • Texas Tech is 3-7 SU in its last 10 games against Oklahoma.
  • Texas Tech G Keenan Evans averaged 15 points while shooting 58.8% vs Oklahoma last season.

Texas Tech comes into this contest riding an eight-game winning streak – including three victories over ranked opponents. Opposing offenses have been unable to find any room to breathe vs Chris Beard’s squad with Texas Tech allowing 58.4 points on 38.4 percent shooting during that span.

Texas Tech has not faced anyone quite like Oklahoma’s Young, who spurned the Red Raiders to play for his hometown Sooners. The freshman is leading the nation in both points and assists per game and has the greenest light in the country. That being said, Young struggled in Oklahoma’s most recent game, as West Virginia and senior guard Jevon Carter harassed the youngster, resulting in a lot of poor shot selection.
