The Texas Tech Red Raiders are set to take on the Texas Christian Horned Frogs on Tuesday at the Ed and Rae Schollmaier Arena. The highly anticipated matchup between these Big 12 rivals is scheduled to start at 7:00 pm Eastern Time.
In its previous matchup, Texas Tech emerged victorious against Oklahoma after an extremely close battle, resulting in a total of 102 points scored in the second half by both teams. The Red Raiders showcased their mid range shooting prowess, achieving an impressive 52.6 percent overall shooting accuracy and accumulating 38 points near the rim. On the other hand, the Sooners displayed their proficiency from beyond the arc, shooting a commendable 42.3 percent. However, their performance at the free throw line was less than ideal, as they missed a total of 9 free throws.
Texas Christian emerged victorious over Baylor in an exhilarating triple overtime showdown this past weekend, with both teams surpassing the 100 point mark. Despite Baylor’s limited success from beyond the arc, managing only 5 three-pointers out of 22 attempts (22.7%), they made up for it by scoring an impressive 50 near the rim. On the other hand, TCU showcased their ranged shooting, converting 52.6 percent of their field goal attempts. Most notably, senior guard Jameer Nelson Jr. played a pivotal role for the squad, contributing 30 points on an impressive 11 for 18 shooting performance.
Overall, Texas Tech exhibits excellent ball control and maintains a disciplined approach by minimizing fouls. In contrast, the Horned Frogs struggle heavily with turnovers, averaging 13.1 per game, and commit an average of 17.5 fouls. The Red Raiders, being an incredible foul shooting team, will capitalize on this advantage during the crucial moments of the game. Thus we give the edge to Texas Tech this time around.
