Keys to the Game:

  1. Defensive Stand: WSU is not very good offensively and this would be another good opportunity to continue to work on any defensive deficiencies.
  2. Another Big Man: The Shockers offer up a true 7-footer and considering the relative lack of height of Texas Tech this could be a real challenge. The Red Raiders will face a number of quality big men in the Big 12 and this is another opportunity to figure things out before conference play starts, especially Robert Lewandowski.
  3. Good Guard Play: I love having so many options at the guard position and there are a number of guys who can play and score. Alan Voskuil, John Roberson, Nick Okorie and Tyree Graham can all play and it is incredibly encouraging to see these guys put up good numbers.

GO RAIDERS . . .
