Richmond, B.C.’s Fardaws Aimaq and Texas Tech Upset the Longhorns

The Texas Longhorns found themselves on the wrong end of the score following an upset by Texas Tech.

The Red Raiders successfully converted on all nine free throws in the first half and went seven of twelve from three, taking a 44-35 lead.

Texas Tech fought off the Longhorns in the second half taking home a 74-67 victory.

De’vion Harmon led the way with twenty-five points, and Richmond’s Fardaws Aimaq pitched in with a team-high eight rebounds and twelve points.
