Oklahoma State Vs. Texas Tech: Game Preview, TV Info And More

In the night-cap of the first day of action in the Big 12 Tournament, No. 7 seed Oklahoma State takes on No. 10 seed Texas Tech for the right to play No. 2 seed Missouri on Thursday.

The Cowboys will probably be without Big 12 Co-Freshman of the Year LeBryan Nash in Kansas City, as the 6'7 230 small forward broke his hand in the last week of the regular season.

But even without Nash, they should have more than enough talent to get past Texas Tech, as Pat Knight left the cupboard absolutely bare for new coach Billy Gillispie in Lubbock. The Red Raiders finished the year 8-22 with one win (over Oklahoma) in conference play and only one player (6'7 freshman F Jordan Tolbert) with a scoring average in double digits.

Oklahoma State, meanwhile, is one of the most dangerous 14-17 teams in the country, as their three freshman and one sophomore starters have grown considerably since the beginning of the season. The Cowboys have wins over Missouri, Texas and Iowa State this year and could cause trouble for a higher seed later in the Big 12 Tournament.

T'hey won both meetings between the two teams in the regular season by an average of 12 points.

The 8:30 PM game will be broadcast regionally on the Big 12 Network.
