In contrast, NKU is at 102.7/100 (ranking 143rd). The Red Raiders allow just 41.3% shooting on twos (ranks 2nd), 30.1% on threes (ranks 16th) and turn opponents over on 23.0% of their possessions (tanks 11th). That's a pretty lethal combination.

Offensively, Texas Tech averages 112.7 points per 100 possessions which ranks 36th. NKU is at 109.2 ranking 77th. They shoot the two well (52.9% ranking 68th), the three well (36.8% ranking 61st) and free throws well (72.8% ranking 100th).

Will be interesting to see what the Norse can do vs. the Texas Tech defense.


Defense comes first for Tech and they bring it the entire game. It will take something special from NKU to pull out a win.

I see a close first half and then Tech's defense helps the Red Raiders pull away the last ten minutes.

A little NKU success is bringing Norse fans out of the woodwork! Glad to see this joint jumping during tourney time. We could use some cheerleader or thicc threads, though. Man does not live by basketball alone.

This is the best plan I've seen. Who is SneakyBounce though? NoOooOrse!!!!

he is amazing, should have been consensus first team all american, but we got passed over. By the time NKU is in the final four, people will recognize what a good shooter he is, though!

The Texas Tech love in this thread makes me sick. Tech couldn’t even finish better than 7th in the preseason big 12 polls. Not impressed.

I know Tech fans think they are special because of Big 12 and all, but they will be in for a rude awakening come Friday. I'm not saying Norse will win, but they will definitely cover. I'm putting big bucks on it too.
62-61 final score

I see those rascals from the South Plains have a horse mascot. I sure pity any horse not living here in Kentucky. While we all know Secretariat was born in Virginia he got to Kentucky as fast as he could.
