Texas Tech Pushes Past Oklahoma in Must Win Big 12 Contest [PHOTOS]
It wasn't pretty, but the Red Raiders got the job done in the 69-61 victory over the Sooners. TJ Holyfield continued his string of solid action leading all scorers with 21 points. Kyler Edwards added 17 while Jahmi'us Ramsey and Davide Moretti also added double figure point totals.
The unsung hero of the game was Kevin McCullar who returned from his concussion with solid minutes and single handedly stopped a Sooner run at the end of the first half. He finished with 6 points and 7 boards in just 19 minutes.
The lead changed 9 times in the game and was tightly contested but it seemed like Texas Tech was allowing Oklahoma to stay in the game with inconsistent play on both ends of the court.
The win gives Texas Tech the same record they had through 9 games last season in Big 12 play and sets them up for a solid run through the back half of conference play.
They next get on the court against Texas in Austin on the 8th of February.
