Texas Tech is scheduled to come off a long COVID pause when they travel to West Virginia on Monday night. Iowa State returns this week after a conference-long four-game COVID pause. It’s a busy week in the Big 12, so lets check out our latest Snapshot, noting again they we use a fantasy sports-style tier format, rather than conventional standings or power rankings.
The second quarter looked like it was going to be all Texas Tech, as they stretched their lead to as many as 13 while the Frogs managed just two points in the first four minutes. But a timely timeout by Pebley helped spark a 9-0 Horned Frogs’ run, and the defense did the rest, pushing the Lady Raiders into an 0-8 stretch to close the half.
The Longhorns lost to Texas Tech, a team Iowa State obliterated, but the Longhorns beat us in the last meeting by 15. Texas is ranked 19th even after a couple of shaky conference losses to Tech and West Virginia, but another big win against Iowa State would put them right back in the hunt for a Big 12 title, or at least a firm spot to get second. Texas has five really talented starters, but their bench was certainly lacking in the past couple of games.
