LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The No. 8 Red Raiders (15-1) are set for game five of Big 12 Conference play, where they will host Iowa State at 8 p.m. on Wednesday night.

With school back in session, the United Supermarkets Arena should be electric come game time.

Iowa State is 12-4 on the season heading into the contest and is currently feeling a sense of urgency after dropping their last two games.

The Cyclones sit second in the conference in scoring offense, just behind TCU, and are led by Marial Shayok in points with 19.4.

According to Vegas, The Red Raiders enter the contest as five-point favorites to beat the Cyclones and are the only team in the Big 12 to still be undefeated in conference play.

The ESPN Power Index gives the Red Raiders a 76.8 percent chance to win.

The home court advantage has been key in this series, as ISU has a 19-14 edge, but Tech leads 10-5 in games played in Lubbock.

Tipoff for the game is at 8 p.m. It will be televised on ESPNU.
