Texas Tech is extra, extra bad this year. I simply can't put it any other way.
Currently, the Red Raiders rank 317th in the nation in points per game, 309th in rebounds per game, 294th in assists per game and 151st in field-goal percentage. Essentially, that Patrick Henry team featured in the first slide would actually have a shot at beating this 2012 edition of Texas Tech.
Oklahoma, for argument's sake, is not much better (13-11, 3-9 Big-12). Yet they're a top 50 team in the country in rebounding and, let's face it, a better team on paper than Texas Tech.
Oh, I almost forgot, Texas Tech lost 11 straight games coming into its meeting with Oklahoma.
Still, that didn't stop the Raiders from embarrassing the Sooners in Lubbock. Oklahoma shot a dreadful 32.7 percent from the floor and an abysmal 14.3 percent from behind the arch. It really, truly was one of the worst games played all season.
Unlike the slop-fest between Syracuse and Louisville that I already mentioned, this game featured two teams without a hope or a prayer of making the NCAA tournament cut in 2012. With that in mind, you can see how much worse Oklahoma's loss is to a Texas Tech team whose biggest win coming into this game was against North Texas.
If Tech guard Luke Adams (above) looks surprised, he has good reason. Texas Tech probably didn't expect to win, much less in a blowout.
Hang your head, Sooners.
