Texas Tech Basketball Teams Return to Big 12 Play This Weekend
Both the Texas Tech men's and women's basketball teams return to the court in Big 12 Conference action this weekend.
The Red Raiders travel to Austin to take on the Texas Longhorns 7 p.m. at the Frank Erwin Special Events Center.
The team (12-13, 2-10) dropped a 70-61 decision to the then No. 11 Longhorns at home January 3 in the conference opener for both clubs.
Freshman Isiah Manderson led Tech in scoring with 12 points.
Javan Felix, who went 3 for 6 from beyond the arch scored 15 points, and Jonathan Holmes added 14 to lead Texas.
Texas Tech lost its last outing 73-51 Wednesday at home to the No. 8 Kansas Jayhawks.
The Lady Raiders look to win back-to-back conference games for the first time this season after picking up a 71-58 home win over Iowa State. They travel to Manhattan, Kansas to take on the Kansas State Wildcats at 1 p.m. Sunday.
The Wildcats won a low-scoring affair at the united Supermarkets Arena on January 30. Tech struggled on offense, finishing the game 1 for 15 from the field and 0 for 9 from behind the arch.
Amber Battle led the Lady Raiders with 19 points in that contest.
Kansas State relied heavily on 6-5 forward Breanna Lewis inside to keep Tech off the offensive glass. Lewis finished with 11 rebounds and six points while Ashia Woods led the Wildcats with 11 points and seven rebounds.
