Florida flashed some of that offensive potency that makes it such a dangerous team in its first round win over St. Bonaventure. I was all over the Bonnies and UF made me look foolish for doing so.
Egor Koulechov scored a game-high 20 and Jalen Hudson chipped in 16. Those were the only double-digit scorers for Florida, which was more balanced than I’ve been used to seeing it.
But the Bonnies were small, like the Gators are. Texas Tech is a different animal with its size up front. But in that challenge also presents itself an opportunity.
The Gators have an excellent chance to stretch the Raiders if that outside shot is going down. KeVaughn Allen was quiet in the first round, as he’s been all season but I’m not convinced he can’t break out for a big game one of these days.
Texas Tech Red Raiders
Stephen F. Austin kept it close against Texas Tech for all of the first half and most of the second but the Raiders got some separation in the final few minutes to secure their place in the Round of 32.
Keenan Evans looked healthy, scoring 26 points. That was the biggest development for Tech, who will need Evans against Florida’s host of outsider shooters.
That’s what this game is: Florida’s outside shooting against Texas Tech’s advantage inside. Tech should be able to impose its will inside and, most importantly, on the glass.
But three is more than two and if Florida shoots it out of the gym, there won’t be much that Tech can do.
