In the Red Raiders' victory against the Boilermakers their upset potential was obvious and on display. Texas Tech soared as high as No. 6 nationally earlier this season to snag the highest national ranking in school history.

Here are three takeaways from Tech's victory. "But a very well-coached team, very disciplined on both ends of the floor".

"Just being a basketball guy, they're a team I'm familiar with because I try to watch them whenever they're on TV at night". Texas Tech left no doubt which was the deeper team. Nine Red Raiders scored and four in double figures.

After a terrific throwback Big East game between Villanova and West Virginia on Friday, Texas Tech's triumph over Purdue was fairly anticlimactic. And it was evident the Boilermakers didn't have the athletes or stamina of Texas Tech. Texas Tech leading scorer Keenan Evans had 16 points.

"We know that this game, we can't get into a scoring match with Villanova". That strong effort is coming despite limited practice time as Evans recovers from a toe injury. Defensively, Texas Tech is holding their opponents to an average of 64.6 ppg on 40.3% shooting from the field. Today, the Wildcats have a chance to set the NCAA record for made 3-point shots in a season. Lack of a post game placed more pressure on Carsen Edwards, who carried Purdue in the first 15 minutes of the second half and Vince Edwards's layup sliced the deficit to 58-55 with 5:44 left.

The Wildcats utilized that shooting to come back against West Virginia Friday night. The victory boosted them to the 11th Elite Eight in program history. If the Raiders can control the pace, get hands in the faces of Wildcats shooters and win the battle on the glass they'll cover this spread. The fact Evans scored just 4 points in the first half and the Red Raiders still led, 30-25, had to be discouraging for Purdue.

The Red Raiders struggled during the regular season from the foul line. "My teammates, my coaching staff, they instill confidence in me even if I'm 1-for-9, 1-for-10", he said. They out-rebounded Purdue in total 34-30.

Texas Tech's athleticism has been one of its hallmarks in the tournament. They were able to get dunks, layups. The game is scheduled to get underway at 2:20 p.m. ET on Sunday, March 25, 2018. The Wildcats then fell down by six with 11 minutes to go but went on an 11-0 run to regain control, and ultimately covered as five-point favorites. The over/under total is now listed at 144.5 points.

Villanova also is deadly from the foul line, ranking 10th nationally at 77.7 percent. They didn't need a monster night from their star senior guard, either; if not for a flurry of late free throws, Evans might have been held to single digits.

The Red Raiders can be vulnerable to foul trouble. Brunson, though, has a considerably better supporting cast offensively, giving them the edge. We play in the best league in college basketball. The Wildcats are first in adjusted offensive efficiency with 127.4 points per 100 possessions and lead the nation in scoring offense with 87.0 points per game.
