Texas Tech Red Raiders
Texas Tech beat Florida in a really entertaining game that was a little overlooked on Sunday. It was tied with 2:30 to go before Keenan Evans made two great plays, hitting a three and throwing an alley-oop to give Tech a five-point lead.
Florida cut it to three and got a steal with less than 30 seconds to go. It got two fairly wide-open looks from three and missed them both.
The Red Raiders weren’t considered a strong 3-seed coming into the tournament but they are one of two remaining in the Sweet Sixteen.
There’s nothing flashy about this team but it plays hard, has balance and is led by a senior in Keenan Evans who is vastly underrated.
I don’t believe this team is a threat to win the tournament but it will compete in this game, will compete (potentially) against West Virginia and has already had a successful season at this point.
Purdue did run the game over against Butler, which gave us another winner on Sunday. Vincent Edwards had 20 and the three Purdue guards PJ Thompson, Carsen Edwards and Dakota Mathias all had double-figures, too.
Matt Haarms scored seven points and grabbed six rebounds in 29 big minutes in place of Isaac Haas. Purdue had to go smaller for longer than it’s been used to this season but it didn’t look bad against a really good Butler team, winning by three to either cover or not, depending on what number you got.
The Boilermakers don’t look to be as dangerous without Haas. For a while, I thought they might be. I look at this team a lot like how I look at Tech, a feel-good season, all things considered, and rock-solid, yet not a real threat to win this thing.
Whoever wins this game will compete against West Virginia, but I’m not betting on a particularly close game against ‘Nova.

Free Texas Tech vs. Purdue NCAAB Prediction: Purdue wins one more.
It’s going to hurt to make it all the way to the Elite Eight and come up short but that’s what I think will happen to Purdue. I think Tech is just a little more satisfied with being in the Sweet Sixteen, versus Purdue, who lost here last season.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Purdue -1.5
The moneyline could be safer. But I’m going to save the 15 cents and hope free throws push Purdue over the number in a close game.
