Texas Tech Red Raiders
The Red Raiders come into this game on a four game winning streak. Their only loss is to Duke this season, making them worthy of a top ten rankings. A win over Texas will move them to 4-0 in the conference as they look to secure a top seed in this years’ tournament.
The Red Raiders do not have the most efficient offense, as they only average 73 points per game. They shoot the ball at 48.1%, which will be the key to taking down the Longhorns.
The Red Raiders have one of the best lockdown defenses in the country this year. Allowing 53.5 points per game is second in the country and gives them a huge advantage to win this game. Not to mention, the Red Raiders are allowing opponents to shoot 33.3% from the field and 24.8% from three. If Texas Tech can hold Texas to anything close to these numbers, they will pick up another win.
After a 3-0 start to Big 12 play, the Longhorns dropped their last game to Oklahoma State. With a win against Texas Tech, they will certainly improve their resume as they remain in contention for a tournament bid.
Some of Texas’ struggles have come from their lack of scoring. They only average 71.7 points per game, which puts them near the bottom of division one basketball. They shoot 43.1% from the field, which is concerning given that they are playing a top three defense. For Texas to win they will have to shoot near 50%.
The Longhorns also have a solid defense to show for this year. They allow 63.5 points per game and allow their opponents to shoot 39.1% from the field. With a potential for the Longhorns to struggle offensively, the defense will have to play their best game for the Longhorns to knock off the Red Raiders.
