Zeno had a spectualar night, scoring 33 points and grabbing 6 boards. He was 19-24 from the free throw line, with many of those coming late in the game when the Tigers were attempting to make a run.

Freshman point guard John Roberson added 25 points, making 10 of his 12 free throw attempts and hitting a clutch shot late in the game.

The Red Raiders also played solid defense, holding Missouri to 45% from the field, including 27% from behind the 3-point arc.

The Tigers played aggressively and pressed for much of the first half, but minus a few lapses, Texas Tech was able to handle the pressure.

Free throws were a huge factor in the game, with the Red Raiders going 36-50 from the charity stripe, while the Tigers only attempting 15.

With the win, the Red Raiders even up their conference record to 2-2 and look to get their first conference road win on Saturday when they face the #12 Texas Longhorns.
