Texas Tech Red Raiders
Probable Starting Lineups:
Keys to the Game:
- Push Offensively: Let's be clear, I'm not advocating just running up and down the court, but I don't think it's any secret that TAMU has struggled somewhat with their offense and it may not be a bad idea to pressure the Aggies offensively to keep pace with Texas Tech. And yes, I can hear RoyalsReview snickering (shoutout).
- Rebounding Edge: I would have bet a lot of money that TAMU was averaging more rebounds than Texas Tech, but that's not the case. Considering the way that the Red Raiders crashed the boards against Mizzou, I think this could be a big key going forward.
Turning It Around: I'm not willing to say that if Texas Tech can win this game, they'll turn the season around, but both of these programs are desparate for a win and although I think the Aggies are more talented, I think both of these teams are comparable as these programs are in a state of flux. Win today and you've done a lot for
your programthe season.
