THE ANALYSIS

Key Matchup | Lewis vs. Turner: Lewis is UTSA's best player averaging 16 points a game and almost 3 assists. He's actually a pretty decent shooter, 46%, but as a team UTSA isn't a good three-point shooting team. Given how Turner got back on track against Houston, I'd love to see Turner get the call against Lewis. Turner really does an excellent job of moving his feet and making plays without using his hands. With the new hand-check rules, there may not be a tougher position to guard than point guard and Turner has really been quite good at guarding up an down the floor without fouling.

Take Aim: There are only two other players that score in double figures for UTSA. G Hyjii Thomas comes off the bench for UTSA and he actually leads UTSA in scoring, averaging 15 points a game on 45% from the floor. Again, that's pretty good. Other than that, Agusi averages 10 points a game and that's it for any double figure scorers.

UTSA isn't a good rebounding team, which is saying something considering Texas Tech isn't a good rebounding team either. According to KenPom, UTSA is the 303rd best in AdjO and 341st in AdjD, which means that they're pretty terrible right now. There are only 351 total teams listed by KenPom. For comparison purposes, Texas Tech has been okay, is ranked 119th overall, 94th in AdjO and 162nd in AdjD.
