The last time Baylor walked away from Texas Tech’s United Spirit Arena, it was a long, uncomfortable ride home to Waco.
Texas snapped a bad slump and is riding a two-game win streak into tonight’s home game against Texas Tech. Sophomore guard Isaiah Taylor is leading the Longhorns in scoring this year, and has had plenty of good moments on the court this season.
This attempted dunk early in tonight’s game is not one of them.
Ouch. That’s a play that Taylor is not going to want to look...

Iowa State avenged its earlier loss this season to Texas Tech by burying the Red Raiders, 75-38, on Saturday afternoon at Hilton Coliseum.
Georges Niang isn’t one likely to forget an insult, even if it was largely self-inflicted. That’s why today’s 1 p.m. tipoff against an otherwise after-thought Texas Tech team holds more significance than anyone would have likely thought when pursuing the schedule a month ago.
Tragedy struck Wednesday night and affected the start time of the K-State-Texas Tech game. No, no one had a heart attack or became severely ill in the locker rooms or anything like that. No, neither team was in a bus crash or anything like that either. In fact, nothing happened to either team or anyone involved with the game.A plane crash knocked out the television tower and cutting...

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) Kliff Kingsbury didn't get a quarterback this year but the two remaining signal-callers will have taller receivers as targets next season.
The Red Raiders weren't very efficient in the red zone last season, so the height of the six receivers Wednesday in the signing class should help. The group is heavy on Texas players, with 18 of the 20 players hailing from...
