This game was a rematch between two teams where the outcome, this time, favored Tech in the opposite way from when Tech and TCU played each other in Fort Worth. Tech basketball pulled off an unbelievable comeback in the 2nd half and beat TCU 82-81.

This game was electric. The fans brought their high and crazy energy to the United Supermarkets on Tuesday February 20. The fans really do make an impact during games and bring Tech basketball a tough home court environment for other Big 12 teams to play at.

Warren Washington has been out for the past 2 games in a boot due to an ankle injury, but that didn’t stop bench players from stepping up to lead their team to success. Kyeron Lindsay played 23 minutes and scored 8 points,7 rebounds, 2 steals, and 2 blocks.

The night started off with a 3-pointer from Kerwin Walton and continued to go back in forth for the entire first half of the game.

Everything was tied up going into halftime, 38-38.

The second half started with a layup from Rober Jennings for Tech to take the lead, but that didn’t stop the horned frogs from finding a way to score. Tech trailed by 10 within the last 7 minutes of the game and fans were shocked to see this elite team struggle. Kyeron Lindsay made a layup to help bring Tech back in this ball game and the crowd wet crazy.

Everything was once again tied up with 2 minutes left of the game, 71-71 with a dunk from Darrion Williams. The fans kept bringing the energy and 7 free throws were made towards the end of the game. Tech was up 3 points with only 12 seconds left of the game and TCU made a fast layup, but it wasn’t enough to win in Lubbock. The Raiders won 82-21 against TCU.

Pop Isaacs was the leading scorer for Tech with 19 points. Joe Toussaint, Kerwin Walton, and Darrion Williams each added 14 points for Tech.

This was a nail bitter game with lots of made free throws for Tech at the end of the game for Tech to beat TCU at home. Tech basketball will travel to Florida to play UCF on February 24 to see if they can sweep the games between them in their first season in the Big 12 Conference.
