Texas is Missing Former Starters

Texas was a 65-64 loser in their most recent outing on the road against Oklahoma State Cowboys. They covered the +2-point spread as underdogs.

Texas will be without two of the guards that began the season in its starting lineup. guard Kerwin Roach II is out with an injured left hand. Guard Andrew Jones is at home in Irving getting treated for leukemia.

Texas started four true freshmen during its Jan. 10 home win against No. 16 TCU. The Longhorns used a seven-man rotation in Saturday’s 65-64 loss at Oklahoma State. The freshmen are guards Matt Coleman and Jase Febres along with forwards Mohamed Bamba and Jericho Sims.

Guard Eric Davis Jr. stepped into the breech for the Longhorns lately. He is averaging 20.0 points per game while hitting 15-of-25 field goals. He is 8-of-14 on his 3-pointers.

Davis Jr. has chipped in 37.0 minutes per game over the past two contests. He led Texas with 18 points in 33 minutes on Saturday’s loss at Oklahoma State. He was 7-10 from the floor and 4-5 on threes.

Bamba rules the paint for Texas. He registered his seventh double-double of the year with an 11-point, 10-rebound effort at on Saturday. He is leading the Big 12 in both rebounding (10.4 rpg) and blocked shots (4.44 bpg). Bamba ranks second nationally (thru games of Jan. 15) in blocks per game.

Texas Tech is Streaking

Last time out for Texas Tech, they were a 72-71 winner as they battled West Virginia Mountaineers at home. They failed to cover in the match as a -4.5-point favorite.

The Red Raiders are heading to Austin with a full head of steam. They knocked off No. 2 West Virginia at home on Saturday. Earlier in the seasonthey won decisively at Kansas. The teams only loss in league play is to now-No. 4 Oklahoma on the road.

Texas Tech started off the year with six straight wins and then lost to Seton Hall. The Red Raiders kept going and now boast a 4-1 mark over ranked teams. That should help make for a dynamite NCAA Tournament resume.

The Red Raiders established a program single-season mark and a nation’s-best five Top 25 victories on the season. Texas Tech has victories in eight of their last nine home games against Top 25 foes. Four of those wins are over Top 10 opponents.
