Notes: The Texas Tech-Texas matchup is always special for the Lammert family. Brothers Clark (Texas Tech) and Connor (Texas) have faced each other twice in college. Together, they led San Antonio Churchill to a 31-6 record. Clark Lammert is a reserve who has appeared in only five games with the Red Raiders. … Tech’s Jaye Crockett and Jordan Tolbert are the two best shooters in the Big 12, based on field goal percentage. They are both shooting 59 percent from the floor. … This will be a key test for UT’s interior defense. In eight of 15 games, the Red Raiders have scored at least 40 points inside, putting them on pace for a new school record.
