Texas Tech Red Raiders
Probable Starting Lineups:
Keys to the Game:
- How About Some Defense: If there was every a time to have to concentrate to stop a couple of players, Jackson and Culpepper, now's the time. I'm not sure who's going to cover Jackson. Had Okorie been healthy, he'd be perfect, and I'm afraid that Singletary is a step slow. Roberson is going to have an opportunity to prove that he can play on both ends of the court defending Culpepper.
- How About Some Height: Seriously? Six-eleven and seven foot? I'm not necessarily a huge believer in Damir Suljagic, but if there's one guy that I absolutely trust in the post playing defense, it's Suljagic. He might deserve more than a token few minutes tonight.
- Work The Offense: As mentioned in DTN's basketball report, Texas Tech cannot afford to get lazy on offense and settle for jumpshots. Keep working the ball inside and give yourself and team some easy opportunities.
