No. 10 Longhorns vs. Texas Tech: Live In-Game Updates – Sports Illustrated

The No. 10 Texas Longhorns host the Texas Tech Red Raiders on Saturday at the Moody Center for a highly-anticipated Big 12 battle.
The Longhorns (14-2, 3-1) are coming off a thrilling 79-75 win over the No. 17 TCU Horned Frogs on Wednesday, as Texas came back from an 18-point deficit to come away with the win.
The Red Raiders (10-6, 0-4) remain winless in Big 12 play after getting blown out in an 84-50 loss to the No. 14 Iowa State Cyclones on Tuesday.
However, despite the poor conference record, Tech swept the season series with the Longhorns last season in two games that came with plenty of emotion.
Of course, this emotion was heightened by now-fired Texas coach and former Red Raiders head man Chris Beard leading the Longhorns. But despite his departure, Texas and Texas Tech remains a heated rivalry.
And just like last season at the Frank Erwin Center, expect an abundance of Texas Tech fans occupying the Moody Center Saturday night.
Live game updates will appear below at kickoff.
***
Under-16
The Longhorns took a 2-0 lead after Timmy Allen found room in the paint for tow points, but Texas struggled mightily with turnovers, committing four in the first four minutes.
The Red Raiders led 7-2 at the 16-minute mark after guard Pop Isaacs hit a triple.
Under-12
Marcus Carr ended an early cold spell for Texas with a right-handed layup before Sir'Jabari Rice got free from mid-range to make it a 7-6 game. But the Red Raiders responded with a alley-oop layup from Fardaws Aimaq and an additional two points from Kevin Obanor.
Under-8
Arterio Morris cut into the early deficit with a triple from the right gap to make it a 13-9 game. Christian Bishop then showed off his athleticism with a put-back off an air-ball for two points. 
And after Tech built a 19-12 lead, Carr hit a much-needed triple right after the eight-minute mark.
Under-4
Allen cut the lead to 19-17 after a free-throw line jumper, but Issacs continued his strong first half with another triple.
Jaylon Tyson added another 3 to give Tech a 27-18 lead before Obanor added a pair of free throws to extend Texas' deficit to double digits.
Issacs hit another 3 to give Tech its largest lead of 12. The Red Raiders held a nine-point lead headed into halftime.
In her one year at Texas, the recruiting efforts took a noticeable step forward under Tyler Johnson.
Jalen Catalon should be an immediate starter for the Longhorns' defense come September.
One of the most explosive talents on the two-time national champion Georgia Bulldogs is in the transfer portal. Could the Longhorns be a landing spot?
HALFTIME: Texas Tech 34, Texas 25
Under-16
Allen began the half with a 3-point play after getting fouled on a fadeaway jumper. He hit another jumper from the baseline before Issacs nailed his fourth triple of the game to give Tech a 39-30 lead.
Carr then hit a 3 at the shot-clock buzzer after a crazy loose ball sequence.
Under-12
Carr and Rice then started to take over to bring Texas back in it. Carr hit an off-the-dribble jumper before Rice used his patented ball-fake to blow past the defender for an easy layup.

Carr added another triple before Rice got one of his own as well to tie the game at 44-44 before the 12-minute mark.
Under-8
The Longhorns grabbed their first lead of the second half after Rice nailed a pair of free throws.
Morris then got by his defender for an off-hand layup before Carr hit another triple to give Texas a 53-46 lead.
But the Red Raiders responded, as Aimaq got free underneath for two points before hitting a catch-and-shoot 3 to cut Tech's deficit to two before the eight-minute mark.
Under-4
Issacs got a pair of free throws to drop to tie the game at 53-53. And after two scoreless minutes from both sides, the Longhorns broke the tie after Rice hit another triple to give Texas a 56-53 lead.
A triple from Brock Cunningham essentially iced the game, as the Red Raiders had to resort to the foul-and-free throw routine the rest of the way.
FINAL: Texas 72, Texas Tech 70

Texas Longhorns guard Tyrese Hunter looked like he was headed toward a memorable performance Tuesday against his former team. Then, the Iowa State Cyclones defense did what it does best.
The Texas Longhorns’ three-game winning streak came to an end on Tuesday night.
Bijan Robinson should be the next first-round running back selected come April.
Bijan Robinson is a polarizing draft prospect, and in Sports Illustrated’s latest mock he is a Top 10 pick.
The Texas Longhorns will be hoping that Tyrese Hunter’s return to Ames to face the Iowa State Cyclones Tuesday night will shake the sophomore guard out of his recent slump.
