Three things to know

In the first 15 minutes of the final half, he’s averaging 11.9 points, 2.9 rebounds and shooting 54.5% compared to 7.3 points, 2.8 rebounds and 37.1% shooting in the opening half.

• The Cowboys bench hasn’t been outscored by opponents in seven straight games. OSU is outscoring opposing benches by 13.1 points this season.

• OSU is 45-23 against the Red Raiders, dating back to 1937. The Cowboys snapped a three-game skid with a 73-70 win on Feb. 15. But the last time OSU traveled to Lubbock, things went poorly. Texas Tech pulled away in the second half for an 85-50 rout.
