After the home defeat with Baylor, the Red Raiders assert their field factor in a sold out and hot United Supermarkets Arena. A one-way race, with Texas Tech that continues from the first minute of the match and always maintains the advantage, overflowing in the second half, thanks also to a great ballistic performance by Davide Moretti.
Texas Tech starts off very strong and in the first 5 minutes of the game immediately scores an 11-2 partial. Iowa State in the second half of the first half is more combative, however, and manages to get back into the game, getting closer to the Red Raiders, up to -2, 13-15. Texas Tech, however, after the partial opponent, is good at responding immediately with a counter break and restoring distances. At the end of the first half the score is 27-21 for the home team.
The first flashes of the second half are from Iowa State which, with four consecutive points, goes back to -2, 27-25.
