Breaking: Norense Odiase Set To Return Against Kansas State

Texas Tech's big man is set to play against the Wildcats.

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

The Red Raiders will have their center returning to the court against the Kansas St Wildcats. Norense Odiase went down in the first half against TCU on 1/18 with a fracture in his foot. He's missed the past 12 games resting and rehabbing his foot, and he now looks to return to action. It appeared he was going to return against West Virginia because he was shooting around before the game, but after he returned from the locker room he was wearing sweats again.

Before he went down with his injury, Odiase was averaging 9 points and 4.5 rebounds a game.

I expect Odiase to play 5 to 10 minutes, maybe coming in on the third rotation of the game. Below are tweets I pulled from Red Raider insiders who were in attendance at Tubby Smith's press conference.
