In a game from NCAA Basketball, we will see Texas Tech at Duke.
Texas Tech hopes to stay unbeaten but that will not be an easy task against one of the hottest teams in the country. The Raiders are coming off an impressive win over the weak Abilene Christian side. The game was over earlier than expected as the Raiders scored 41 points in the first half and then matched the same number in the second. Culver leads the team with 19.1 points per game and Matt Mooney is the only other player averaging double digits with 11 points per game.
Duke continues to roll with their freshman talent. RJ Barrett finished with 27 points in the last game while Zion Williamson added 17 points and 10 rebounds and a monster block off the back board that everyone got crazy about. It is a high-powered team offensively, averaging 93.6 points per game. The team is loaded with talent and this may be the first time in an NBA Draft where we see the top-3 picks to be selected from a single school.
Duke is playing lights out at the moment and even though they are not consistent from three-point range, they are capable of hurting you from mid-range and especially in the paint. Texas Tech doesn’t have what it takes to compete with them on the road.
