Halftime update: Texas Tech matching Gonzaga’s firepower

Though Gonzaga usually excels in fast paced high scoring games, Tech has been able to excel just as much.

There has been nine ties and nine lead changes in this game. Texas Tech’s largest lead has been five while Gonzaga’s largest lead has been four. This is about as close a game as you could imagine and Tech is right in the thick of things.

Matt Mooney has been the offensive leader for the team with 11 points and some clutch shooting. Jarrett Culver has been the defensive leader for the team with three steals and three rebounds while also chipping in seven points.

Gonzaga’s size has been a problem for Tech as Bulldog big men Brandon Clarke and Rui Hachimura have combined for 23 points. However the Zags have struggled to hold onto the ball as they’ve committed nine turnovers.
