Texas Tech Jumps Back into the Top 25 After Blowout Win
The Red Raiders have been in and out of the top 25 this season multiple times. Last week was a week spent just outside of the top 25 after a weekend loss to Oklahoma State. The team then bounced back with two straight wins against Kansas State and Iowa State to get back into the rankings at number 22.
The weekend's 30 point victory over Iowa State firmly puts Oklahoma State behind them, as much as Oklahoma State's winning ways make the loss sting a little less. The Cyclones certainly aren't what they were a few weeks ago without Tyrese Haliburton but they were holding serve at home until the Red Raiders smashed their will last Saturday.
Jahmi'us Ramsey continued his hot streak leading all scorers with 25 while Kyler Edwards added in 19 of his own. TJ Holyfield was also in double figures with 10. Kevin McCullar led all rebounders in the game with 11, a career-high for the freshman. Texas Tech also got 18 points from their bench after only getting two from the reserves against Kansas State in the midweek game.
Next up for the Red Raiders is an Oklahoma team that has lost three straight. It will be a road team for Texas Tech but not a home game for the Sooners who will host the game in Oklahoma City in the home of the Thunder Chesapeake Energy Arena.
It's one of four remaining Big 12 games left on the Schedule for Texas Tech that finishes with the top two teams in the country with number two Baylor in Waco and Kansas in Lubbock as the final two games of the season. Both of those games follow the Longhorns coming down to Lubbock.
