No. 8 Texas (19-3) at Texas Tech (12-10) 9:00 pm EST

LUBBOCK, Texas (Ticker) -- Daniel Gibson and Texas would like to keep the good times rolling against their intrastate foe.

Gibson and the eighth-ranked Longhorns seek their seventh win in their last eight games here when they face Texas Tech on Monday.

Since Rick Barnes became the program's 23rd coach before the 1998-99 season, Texas (19-3, 7-1 Big 12) has almost completely dominated Texas Tech, posting a 14-2 mark. That mastery was driven home by an 80-46 romp of the Red Raiders at home on January 17.

In that game, Gibson continued his stellar track record of playing well against Texas Tech, hitting four 3-pointers en route to 16 points. In three career games against the Red Raiders, the sophomore guard is averaging 19.3 points while hitting 12-of-18 (67 percent) on his shots from the arc.

Holding a 1 1/2 game lead in the Big 12 standings after a loss by both Oklahoma and Colorado on Sunday, the Longhorns can build upon that lead with yet another road win. Texas is 5-1 away from home this season, including a 69-58 victory over then-No. 4 Memphis on January 2.

Texas has posted each of those road wins by more than 10 points.

Texas Tech (12-10, 4-4) avoided a second straight loss with a 73-55 win over Missouri on Saturday. Jarrius Jackson scored 22 points, pulled down 12 rebounds and handed out five assists without a turnover.

Martin Zeno also scored 22 points for the Red Raiders, who have won their last six games at home.
