What to Know

The Texas Tech Red Raiders will face off against the LSU Tigers on the road at 2 p.m. ET Saturday at Pete Maravich Assembly Center. Given that these two teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this contest.

The matchup between Texas Tech and the West Virginia Mountaineers on Wednesday was not a total blowout, but with the Red Raiders falling 76-61 at home, it was darn close to turning into one. The losing side was boosted by forward Kevin Obanor, who had 20 points in addition to eight rebounds. Obanor hadn't helped his team much against the Kansas State Wildcats on Saturday, so this was a nice turnaround for him.

Meanwhile, LSU was expected to have a tough go of it on Tuesday, and that's exactly how things played out. They ended up on the wrong side of a painful 60-40 walloping at the Arkansas Razorbacks' hands. Guard Adam Miller wasn't much of a difference maker for LSU; Miller finished with only nine points on 3-for-12 shooting in his 34 minutes on the court.

Barring any buzzer beaters, Texas Tech is expected to win a tight contest. Now might not be the best time to take Texas Tech against the spread since they've let down bettors for the past three consecutive games.

The Red Raiders are now 10-10 while the Tigers sit at 12-8. Texas Tech is 2-7 after losses this year, LSU 1-6.
