Texas Tech shot 28-of-67 from the floor, 3-of-19 from 3-point range plus 25-of-32 at the free throw line. Davide Moretti paced the Red Raiders with 20 points on 3-of-4 shooting including 2-of-2 from 3-point range plus 12-of-12 at the free throw line. He also pulled down three rebounds. Jarrett Culver contributed 19 points, 10 boards and two steals. Tariq Owens added 16 points, six caroms and two blocked shots.

Horned Frogs fall in triple overtime

Texas Christian lost by a count of 104-96 in three overtimes Tuesday night at West Virginia to fall to 18-10 overall and 6-9 in the Big 12. The Horned Frogs outscored the hosts 38-32 in the second half to send the contest into OT at 68-68, but it took three overtimes for it to finally be decided. Texas Christian shot 38-of-80 from the field, 9-of-27 from 3-point distance plus 11-of-20 at the free throw line. J.D.

College Basketball Betting Trends

Texas Tech

The Red Raiders are 5-1 ATS in their last six games overall. Texas Tech is 4-0-1 ATS in the last five meetings.

Texas Christian

The Horned Frogs are 1-4 ATS in their last five games overall. Texas Christian is 10-4 ATS in its last 14 home games.


Texas Tech survived a scare against Oklahoma State, but had been dominating foes before that. With TCU coming off a heartbreaking loss that severely damaged its chances at an NCAA Tournament berth, I don't see a lot of energy for today's contest especially considering it was a three-OT loss. The Red Raiders already hold an 84-65 win over the Horned Frogs this season and I expect the sweep to be completed today.
