Neither team could find their shot early in the game, largely because of solid defense on both ends of the floor.
It looked like the second half might be a repeat of the first until Texas Tech went on a 10-0 run to pull within 1-point with remaining. Both teams would play close for the rest of the game.
This wasn't a great offensive game, but it was enough to beat a pretty good
The Red Raiders played a pretty amazing game on the defensive end of the court. The tone was set early in the game, when Texas Tech created a flurry of steals. The Red raiders continued to play the passing lanes aggressively, leading to either turnovers or bad shots by the Cowboys. Andre Emmett played one of the best defensive games of his career tonight. Emmett was constantly jumping the passing lanes, leading to 6 steals. The Texas Tech defense is ready to play against anyone in the Big 12, they just need a little more help from the offense if the Red Raiders are going to make it to the NCAA tournament.
