NCAA 2019: MI vs. Texas Tech Recap

Texas Tech guard Jarrett Culver smiles at the end of an NCAA college basketball game against Iowa State Saturday

The men fell to the No. 3 seed Texas Tech Red Raiders 78-58 in Tulsa, OK and the women fell 84-72 to No. 2 seed UConn in Storrs, CT.

With Texas Tech relying so much on Jarrett Culver, who leads the team in points, rebounds and assists, the more well-rounded team in Gonzaga should win and cover this matchup.

Norense Odiase had 14 points and 15 rebounds, both season highs, for Texas Tech (28-6). When guards Davide Moretti and Matt Mooney are hitting 3-pointers, the Red Raiders have the kind of balance that is tough to beat. If they both return, though, MI will be an immediate contender in the Big Ten once again.

Gonzaga averages 88.2 points per game and shoots 52.8 percent from the field.

"Culver, you having fun?" the coach said. "We made some poor decisions".

"It was a little helpless at times because they're going to control the ball, they're not going to turn it over", Beilein said. "We're not a team that can score one-on-one". The Bulls will hope he can build on his performance against Arizona State, as the MI native has otherwise struggled against power conference opponents this year.

The Red Raiders tried to fight back in the bottom of the fourth as Zoe Jones reached first on an error, but they could not find their footing as Kelcy Leach fouled out, giving Tech its third out. They play at such a high level that head coach Chris Beard admitted to reporters that he has shown his team a lot of Gonzaga film.

"I feel like MI lagged running in transition which is something we're going to want to do tomorrow", he said.

Senior forward Nick Perkins registered 17 points and 10 rebounds off the bench for sixth-seeded Buffalo (32-4), which scored its fewest points of the season. That scoring balance and strong team defense was required because the Zags got nearly nothing from their bench (five points on 2-of-6 shooting in 42 minutes), so the anticipation is that the starting five will have to shoulder most of the load against a Texas Tech defense that has been turning heads and setting records in the tournament by wearing down opponents in a grinding defensive style. Buffalo reached the NCAA second round for the second year in a row. "We worked for it all summer not to have that feeling again". Hachimura leads Gonzaga in scoring with 19.6 points per game while Clarke leads the Bulldogs in rebounding with 8.5 rebounds per game and Perkins leads Gonzaga in assists with 6.2 assists per game this season.

The game was already in hand when Livers sprung free for what looked like a rare clean look from 3.

Texas Tech's defense is elite.

The Elite 8 table is being set, with the victor of this matchup advancing to the Final Four.

"Games like these are why I came here", he said. "The end of the first half was big".

The Zags lead the nation in virtually every offensive category, including efficiency, points per game, and effective field goal percentage.

The third-seeded Texas Tech Red Raiders have had the most efficient defense in the nation this season, while the top-seeded Gonzaga Bulldogs bring in the most efficient offense nationally.

Buffalo: The Bulls struggled at the beginning, falling behind 6-0 and 10-2, making just one of their first seven shots.

Hachimura averages 19.6 points.

The Wolverines could never get anything going against the swarming Texas Tech defense, which used a matchup zone to frustrate a MI team that has trouble putting the ball in the basket on a good day.

The loss denied the Bulldogs their second Final Four appearance in three seasons.

"We're not supposed to be here", Beard said. It took the Bulls almost eight minutes to finally hit a field goal in the second half while Texas Tech seemed to hit on every shot they made.
