The Red Raiders are an at-large team hoping to make a deep run behind their lockdown defense. First-year head coach Mark Adams has found a way to build off Chris Beard’s success in Lubbock, so we’ll see if Texas Tech can go all the way to the Final Four as it did under Beard.
The Bobcats won the Big Sky conference tournament to get into the dance and hope to create some mischief in the 3-14 matchup. This is a balanced group with three players averaging double figures, led by Xavier Bishop. Let’s see if Montana State can pose any threat to Texas Tech’s defense.
Texas Tech is a 14.5-point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook. The point total sits at 131.5.
