Texas Tech Red Raiders
Probable Starting Lineups:
Keys to the Game:
- Pray: KenPom gives Texas Tech a 3% chance of winning this game. Say a sweet thought to the diety of your choosing, but maybe specifically pray that Voskuil, Singletary and Roberson all have the games of their lives.
- Slow The Fast Break: As noted above, the Tigers are averaging almost 20 assists a game and although Junior Knight likes to run, this might be a situation where the Red Raiders try and control the tempo for more of a half-court game.
- Let Cook Be Healthy: Considering Missouri is averaging almost 40 rebounds a game, this would be a great game for Trevor Cook to make a return. Cook offers so much more than Suljagic and Cohadarevic, although Suljagic can play good defense. Quite simply, Cook is a better overall player and an offensive threat.
