What They’re Saying: Texas Tech
Another important development for the Red Raiders is the rise of Kyler Edwards. Against Kansas State, the sophomore guard dropped 24 points, a career-high. Saturday against Iowa State, he almost matched it with a 22-point performance. Texas Tech has been looking for a third scoring option behind Jahmi’us Ramsey and Davide Moretti and it appears they’ve found it in Edwards.
What They’re Saying: TCU
TCU is one of the better three-point shooting teams in the Big 12, but they struggled from the field against Oklahoma, hitting just 22.2 percent of their long-range attempts on Saturday. That doesn’t bode well against the Red Raiders, who just held Iowa State to a paltry 13.6 percent conversion rate from three.
