Red Raiders Withstand Second Half Hoyas For 79-65 Win: Live Game Log

The Red Raiders look to get back in the win column as they host the Hoyas on Wednesday.

The Texas Tech Red Raiders (4-2) return home from the Maui Jim Invitational to take on the Georgetown Hoyas (4-3), looking to get themselves back in the win column after a 1-2 trip to Maui.

To start their season the Red Raiders opened with three straight home games at the United Supermarkets Arena and rightfully looked like a team that belonged in the AP Top 25. 

They opened with two 24-point victories over NW State and Texas Southern followed by a nine-point win over Louisiana Tech to move to 3-0.  

However, they struggled at times in Maui which led to a lackluster 1-2 showing. Their lone win in Maui is also looking less impressive, with Louisville completely imploding to start their season. 

As for Georgetown, their three losses look rough on paper this early in the season. Of course, that does not automatically mean this is a "gimme" game for the Red Raiders because the Hoyas do have a talented squad. 

Stay tuned for live updates as the Red Raiders take on the Hoyas on Wednesday evening from United Supermarkets Arena in Lubbock, Texas. 

Live updates will be available shortly after tip off.

Under-16 media timeout

It has been a slow-going affair to start as both teams have been cold shooting the ball. Georgetown opened with a three-pointer before the Red Raiders reeled off nine straight points and took a 3-point lead into the timeout.

Texas Tech 9, Georgetown 6

Under-12 media timeout

The pace picked up a bit during this stretch of play, and the star of the show was Daniel Batcho. The Red Raiders' big man leads the way for Texas Tech with an early seven points and four rebounds, including a three pointer after he was left wide open beyond the arc. 

Texas Tech 16, Georgetown 16

Under-8 media timeout

We've reached the under-8 media timeout in what has been a low-scoring affair so far. Coming out of the break the Red Raiders will have two free throws. 

Texas Tech 20, Georgetown 20

Under-4 media timeout

Whew boy, this game blew open fast. The Red Raiders go on a 16-0 run after holding Georgetown scoreless for over five minutes. The Red Raiders lead by 13 heading into the under-4 timeout.

Texas Tech 36, Georgetown 23 


The Red Raiders completely opened this game up, going on a massive 21-6 run to end the half with a 15-point lead. Batcho still leads the way with 11 points for Texas Tech, and only needs two more rebounds to record a double double. 

Texas Tech 41, Georgetown 26


Under-16 media timeout

At the under-16 media timeout it is still all Texas Tech, as Tyson has caught fire and now leads the Red Raiders with 18 points to balloon their lead to 21-points early in the half. 

Texas Tech 54, Georgetown 33 

Under-12 media timeout

As we head into the under-12 media timeout the Red Raiders maintain a comfortable 19-point lead, not letting the Hoyas get themselves back into this game. 

Texas Tech 59, Georgetown 40 

Under-8 media timeout

Well, this one has certainly got a lot more interesting. Once down 23, the Hoyas have stormed back to make this a 10-point game at the under-8 timeout with all the momentum.

Texas Tech 62, Georgetown 52 

Under-4 media timeout

What once appeared to be a blowout win for the Red Raiders has turned into a dogfight as the Hoyas find themselves within five as we head into the under-four timeout.

Texas Tech 66, Georgetown 61


It wasn't pretty but the Red Raiders are going to escape the Hoyas with a semi-convincing 79-65 win for their 25th straight win at home.

Texas Tech 79, Georgetown 65
