The Raiders finished the season tied for second place with Nebraska, but lost the tie-breaker, because the Cornhuskers won two-of-three games from Tech this season.
Tech, which owns a 15-game win streak, is one of only five league teams (Baylor, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas A&M) to have made the Big 12 Tournament every year since the league's formation in 1997.
