No. 10 Texas, Texas Tech top Saturday’s best basketball games

The Texas Longhorns take on their new basketball rival on Saturday. The Texas Tech Red Raiders come to town after sweeping the Longhorns last season.

The matchup couldn’t come at a worse time for Texas Tech. Mark Adams’ team is 10-6 and in the midst of a four-game losing streak. In their last trip to the court, the Raiders fell to No. 14 Iowa State, 84-50.

Wins have been easier in Austin in recent weeks. Texas enters Saturday off the back of a comeback victory over No. 17 TCU. The game saw the Longhorns down by as many as 18 points. Head coach Rodney Terry will look to capitalize on the team’s strong start on Saturday night.
