Texas Tech vs West Virginia Match Preview
Why Texas Tech will win
West Virginia is not the West Virginia we are used to.
He’ll have his moments defensively, but he doesn’t have the same stifling D, the rebounds aren’t there, and not much happens from three because the team doesn’t generate the extra pass.
It’s all death against one of the best defenses in college basketball.
Texas Tech isn’t going to allow anything from the outside, and that forces way too many turnovers and errors for West Virginia to deal with, and again with the rebounds.
The Red Raiders should be able to clean it all up.

West Virginia will contribute its share of revenue.
No, that might not be enough to stop teams from scoring inside, but there will be enough steals to count and he should be able to feed off the energy of the crowd and the big game.
Maybe it’s time to turn the season around. Texas Tech is coming off a thrilling home win over Texas, but before that it wasn’t that great of a three for long stretches and it’s not going to bomb its way to a win.
If the Mountaineers can crush Texas Tech a bit and keep that in the ’60s, they’ll have a chance.

what’s going to happen
Texas Tech managed to win 78-65 a few weeks ago in Lubbock even though they couldn’t hit enough on three, the shot was hit with a ton of fouls, and it wasn’t so great on line. What did it do well?
Rebound. It was +10 on the board, made up for issues with a whopping 15 offensive boards – a season high after the first three warm-up games of the year – and he should be able to get away with winning on the glass.
West Virginia will have a run or two, but slow and steady should win this run in the second half.
