Three ACC games on Wednesday as Albany visits Boston College, Notre Dame tries to limit Detroit Mercy’s Antoine Davis and the headliner, Louisville and Texas Tech in the Garden.
Texas Tech is off to a slow start at 5-3 but that partly reflects changed expectations after last year’s run to the NCAA finals.
That’s not entirely fair.
First, every team is different. Duke in 1992 was not the Duke of 1991 even though most of the championship team was back.
Second, up until the final weekend of last season, Texas Tech got to play the scrappy underdog.
