What to Know

The #19 Texas Tech Red Raiders lost both of their matches to the Oklahoma State Cowboys last season on scores of 77-82 and 69-74, so they're hoping to turn the tables this season. Texas Tech and Oklahoma State will face off in a Big 12 battle at 7 p.m. ET Thursday at United Supermarkets Arena. The Red Raiders are out to keep their nine-game home win streak alive.

Things were close when Texas Tech and the Baylor Bears clashed on Tuesday, but Texas Tech ultimately edged out the opposition 65-62. Texas Tech relied on the efforts of guard Adonis Arms, who had 14 points and five assists in addition to nine rebounds, and guard Kevin McCullar, who had 12 points and five assists along with six boards.

Meanwhile, the Cowboys came up short against the West Virginia Mountaineers on Tuesday, falling 70-60. Guard Avery Anderson III wasn't much of a difference maker for Oklahoma State; Anderson III picked up four fouls and turned the ball over five times en route to a 3-for-13, 9-point finish.

The Red Raiders are the favorite in this one, with an expected 8-point margin of victory. There could be an interesting gambling play in this one, as they have done quite well against the spread at home this season while Oklahoma State have struggled against the spread on the road.

Texas Tech's victory brought them up to 12-3 while Oklahoma State's defeat pulled them down to 8-6. A couple numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: Texas Tech ranks 28th in college basketball when it comes to takeaways, with 16.7 on average. But the Cowboys are even better: they enter the contest with 18.2 takeaways on average, good for 11th best in college basketball. We'll see if that edge gives Oklahoma State a route to victory.
