Texas Tech is one of several feel good stories in the Big 12. They can’t all continue but so far the Red Raiders are riding that wave.
Iowa State is down a tier or two this season but Hilton Coliseum is probably the best homecourt in the conference.
Texas Tech Red Raiders
Texas Tech is coming off a loss at Texas in their last game. Their two conference losses are on the road but given they won at Kansas they can probably win anywhere.
Coach Chris Bears has this gruop playing great defense. They are only giving up 61ppg, good for 5th in the nation.
Keenan Evans is one of the most productive players in the conference averaging 17ppg in just 27 minutes. He is a typical heady senior guard.
This is a deep team with 10 players averaging at least 15 minutes per game. They can and do wear you out with their intensity.
Iowa State Cyclones
The Cyclones had a nice little run under Fred Hoiberg where they were as good as any team in the Big 12. It is over.
For a while there they had a really nice mix of talent but they never really went all that deep. Now that upper level talent just isn’t on the roster.
Lindell Wigginton is a freshman guard from Canada. He is averaging 16ppg and is a nice foundational piece going forward.
Nick Weiler-Babb is a stat stuffer. There are not many players anywhere that are averaging 12/7/7. The latter two lead the club.
