The TCU Horned Frogs (4-0, 0-0) v. The Texas Tech Red Raiders (4-2, 0-0)
Wednesday, November 28, 2007 @ 7:00 p.m.
Keys to the Game:
- Slow Down the Frogs: Over 80 points a game? Is Billy Tubbs still the head coach. Granted, most of TCU's opponents have been less than impressive, but scoring over 80 a game is nothing to sneeze at. Look for the Texas Tech defense to rebound after their disappointing effort against Butler.
- Dominate the Frogs: The Horned Frogs might be one of the better teams in a relatively weak non-conference schedule and it would nice to see our Red Raiders dominate what appears to be an inferior opponent.
- Control the Boards: I know, I have to stop focusing on rebounding and I promise I'll stop, at least for a game, but how could I refuse to notice the rebounding advantage that TCU holds statistically over Texas Tech? A 20 rebound advantage means that Cook, Roberts, Singletary and whoever else plays needs to control the boards.
