Rock M Nation is in Kansas City covering the Big 12 Championship:
KANSAS CITY—One season ago, the opening round of the Big 12 Championship turned Texas Tech forward Mike Singletary into a star. Today, down early to Colorado in the opening round, coach Pat Knight and the Red Raiders were in need of another star effort.
Enter junior guard John Roberson.
In wasn’t exactly as stunning as Singletary’s 44-point effort a year ago, but Roberson scored 19 points in helping the No. 9 Texas Tech Red Raiders overcome poor early shooting in a 82-67 defeat of the No. 8 Colorado Buffaloes.
Texas Tech will face top-seeded Kansas tomorrow in an ESPN2-televised game scheduled to tip off at 11:30 a.m. Kansas defeated Texas Tech, 89-63, in the teams’ only meeting this season.
