It doesn’t get any bigger than playing the No. 1 team in the nation…unless you are doing so in a nationally televised game on ESPN…in Madison Square Garden. Such is the opportunity before the Texas Tech basketball team tonight.
Opportunity is the correct word to use here because that’s what this game is. For the first time all season, the Red Raiders will enter a contest as the decided underdogs and they will finally be back to their familiar place as the upset-minded Davids trying to take down mighty Goliath.
It’s been a disappointing two-weeks for the Red Raiders, who enter having lost three-straight games to fall out of the top 25.
