These are the games you need to win. It's a home game for the Texas Tech Lady Raiders and they know they need to protect the home court. They'll try and do that tonight when they host the Kansas Jayhawks in the United Spirit Arena.

A win by both teams will pump up their chances of securing a spot in the NCAA Tournament.

Tech is in a three way tie for seventh place in the Big 12 with Texas and Oklahoma State, so a victory tonight would come in handy.

The Lady Raiders are 7 and 1 against the Jayhawks here at home and leads the all-time series 14-4.

The last time out the Lady Raiders held the #1 Baylor Lady Bears to their lowest point total this season losing just 56 to 51. Baylor came into that game averaging a 31 point margin of victory at home in Waco. Tech beat Baylor on the boards 38 to 37.

Tech needs a win tonight, because they have two tough road games left at Texas A&M and Kansas State. If they can get a win against one of them and they beat OKlahoma here on Wednesday, February 29th, they'LL probably get in the NCAA.

In case no one notice, #11 Penn State, who the Lady Raiders beat earlier in the season 70-66, beat #8 Ohio State 84-66 last night. So the win against the Lady Lions has got to stand for something. Just saying.

Tip off tonight is set for 7pm.
