Two rivals meet in the first round of the Phillips 66 Big 12 Tournament. The Texas Longhorns take on the Texas Tech Red Raiders.
This is the third game between the two teams this year. Each team won the previous match up on their home floor.
The Texas Longhorns have had a disappointing season to say the least. No one expected this team to make the final four but they did expect at least an NCAA Tournament berth.
The Longhorns come into this game with a 10-21 record and finished the regular season in last place in the Big 12. They come into this game having lost seven straight games. Just two games ago they lost to Texas Tech by a final score of 67-57.
The problems for the Longhorns has been on the offensive side of the ball. They average 67.8 points per game which is 295th best in all the country.
For the Longhorns to pull the upset they need to play better on that side of the ball. Texas Tech is good defensively so the Longhorns need to find a way to break through that and have some bench guys step up and have big games.
Texas Tech Red Raiders
The Texas Tech Red Raiders have had a good season but it looks like they will miss out on the NCAA Tournament unless they make a big run in the Big 12 tournament. They ahve set themselves up fro a nice seed in the NIT Tournament however.
The Red Raiders come into this game with a record of 18-13 and sit in 7th place in the Big 12 conference. They have lost four of their last five games. Their only win in that stretch was against the Texas Longhorns.
The Red Raiders are a good team on both sides of the ball but their bread and butter is their defense. They give up only 67.3 points per game which 59th best in the country.
For the Red Raiders to advance to the second round of the Big 12 conference they need to build on what they started the last time the two teams played. They need to play good on the defensive side of the ball and keep the Longhorns in the low 60’s.
