VIDEO: pre Florida Atlantic press conference

Coach Beard is looking for answers

NCAA Basketball: Nevada at Texas Tech Michael C. Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

On Saturday, Texas Tech defeated Rice by 20 points, but the game was fought for the entire first half, with the Red Raiders taking the lead only a couple of minutes before the break.

With another flock of Owls coming to town on Tuesday, coach Beard wants to see a reaction from his team, as Florida Atlantic is a 6-4 team that’s imagined to be a bigger threat for his team.

He also discussed the Owls’ best players, Gerdarius Troutman and redshirt senior Ronald Delph, a 7-foot-0, 245 pounds center who’s probably the biggest players the Red Raiders have faced till now.

He was accompanied by guards Davide Moretti, who talked about his increased playing time, and Niem Stevenson, who pointed out his attention on the impact freshmen are having on the team.
