Take the Cowboys on the road against a team, Texas Tech, that they should dominate. The home court advantage is not near it was when the days of Bobby Knight were present in Lubbock. Okie State upset then ranked #2 Mizzou last Thursday and have a solid team. They are a bit inconsistent at times, but Travis Ford KNOWS the importance of road wins in the Big 12, and beating teams that are less in talent than you are is crucial. Texas Tech has scored a mere 51 ppg opn offense their last 5 games and allowed 67 ppg.
While Okie State is 1-5 on the road, This is a winnable road game and a MUST WIN for them. Okie State cashing it at 80% from the charity stripe while the Red Raiders are at 64%, and with lines tight in these type of games, making consistently more free throws or free shots from the line makes a huge difference in covering numbers. Texas Tech has covered just 5 out of their last 16 games. Tech has covered 4 in a row in this series including the last meeting, but have lost 8 in a row SU, and with Okie State coming off a road loss at Texas AM, look for them to be focused in.
