Le’Bryan Nash paced the Cowboys with 16 points. Phil Forte added 15, while Jeff Newberry chipped in 13.
The Lady Raiders had their worst offense performance of the season-to-date on January 7 when they dropped a game 66-35 to the Cowgirls in Stillwater.

Three Oklahoma State players scored in double digits led by Brittney Martin with 18, Roshunda Johnson had 14 and Liz Donohoe added 10.

As a special added attraction, over 120 Texas Tech basketball alumni will be recognized and take part in the Red & Black Alumni Game presented by Geico. This match will tip off just minutes after the conclusion of the men's game.
The two alumni teams will be coached by Texas Tech's all-time winningest coach Gerald Myers and National Basketball Hall of Famer Bob Knight. Meyers skippered the Red Raiders from 1971-1991, while Knight walked the sideline from 2001-2008.
