Cyclones Dismantle Red Raiders in 84-50 Blowout: Live Game Log

The Red Raiders look to get back on track with a Tuesday night Big 12 showdown against the Cyclones.

The Texas Tech Red Raiders men's basketball team is back in action on Tuesday, as they hit the road to take on the Iowa State Cyclones. 

For the Red Raiders, their matchup against the Cyclones represents another chance to get their season back on track after a rough start to conference play. They find themselves sitting at 0-3 so far against the Big 12, and dropping to 0-4 would not be great for their chances at winning a conference championship. 

As for the Cyclones, well, their season is on a much different trajectory than their conference foes. They sport an impressive 12-2 record, and where Texas Tech is 0-3 in Big 12 play, they are 3-0. 

While the Red Raiders offense can be high flying, averaging 78.4 points per game, the Cyclones offense comes in at 70.6 points per game. If the Red Raiders can get their offense going, which won't be easy against a Cyclones defense holding opponents to 58.2 points per game, they could leave Ames with the victory. 

Stay tuned as we provide live updates as the Red Raiders take on the Cyclones on Tuesday night. 

Live updates will be available shortly after tip off.


Under-16 media timeout
