Why Kansas Will Win
Just when everything is supposed to be coming together, Texas Tech is sputtering.
You don’t want to face the best team in college basketball after losing your last three games.
They’re not hitting enough from three, the defense has been a problem lately, and they’re coming off a tough overtime loss to Baylor after getting killed on the defensive boards.
If you can’t come up with some sort of inside presence against Kansas, the offensive rebounds are a killer.
Why Texas Tech Will Win
The Red Raiders continue to be fantastic at keeping the ball moving well. Kansas can turn the lights out in a hurry if it starts taking the ball away, but that’s not going to be much of a concern.
How do you beat The Jayhawks? You can’t give up easy points, and you have to keep them under 50% from the field. In the first matchup, they connected on 52% of their shots with everything rolling on the inside.
That can’t happen again.
That, and the threes have to be falling from the start. The Red Raiders lead the Big 12 at three-point shooting percentage.
What’s Going To Happen
Texas Tech will come out fired up, play well early, and generate a buzz as it gives the nation’s No. 1 team a rough time.
And then everything will change as the Jayhawks start ramp on the defensive pressure in the second half and take control offensively on the inside. It’ll be a grind, but Kansas is playing too well right now.
