The Opponent
Texas Tech comes into Saturday's game with a 10-11 overall record, including a 2-6 mark in league play after dropping a 66-58 decision to Kansas State Tuesday. Against the Wildcats, Jaye Crockett scored 15 points, while Dejan Kravic added eight boards, but the Red Raiders couldn't complete the second half comeback despite pulling within single-digits late in the contest.

For the season, Crockett has carried the load, averaging 14.3 points per game, while shooting 55 percent from the field. Jordan Tolbert has also been solid, tallying 11.4 points a game and 6.2 rebounds a contest.

A Glance Back
In January, TCU ended the first half on a 16-1 run to take a one-point halftime lead, but just missed on some key opportunities in the second stanza of action, falling to Texas Tech at Daniel-Meyer Coliseum, 60-49. In game that could have gone either way following intermission, the Horned Frogs were able to overcome a slow start shooting wise, thanks in large part to an impressive showing at the free throw line and tough defense. For the game, the Frogs went 26-for-31 (.839) from the charity stripe. During the first period alone, TCU, who didn't allow Texas Tech to score from the field for over nine minutes of action in the opening frame, shot 85.7 percent, going 12-of-14.

Freshman Karviar Shepherd had a career outing against the Red Raiders in January, scoring a career-high 15 points, which included a 9-for-9 showing at the free throw line. The Dallas native, who logged a season-high 40 minutes, also added seven boards, three blocks and one steal.
