LUBBOCK, Texas -

The Red Raiders end the regular season with their highest rank of the year and move up to 7 in this week's AP Poll. 

Texas Tech defeated Texas 70-51 on senior night and beat Iowa State 80-73 on Saturday this week. It was Tech's first win in Ames since January 26th, 2011. The win clinched a share of the Big 12 regular season title for the first time in program history. Chris Beard and Jarrett Culver took home Big 12 Coach and Player of the year honors. 

The next opponent for the Red Raiders is uncertain, and as the 2 seed in the Big 12 tournament they will take on the winner of Wednesday night's matchup between #7 Oklahoma and #10 West Virginia. Tech is 4-0 against the Sooners and Mountaineers this season. 

Tech's next game is scheduled for Thursday, March 14th at 6 p.m on ESPN2.
