A very complicated game for the coach Beard boys who continue to find no confidence with the basket and have great offensive difficulties (28.4% from the field). The # 17 West Virginia proved more continuous throughout the match and, despite the usual great defense of Texas Tech, it managed to find the way to the basket more easily, especially at the beginning of the second half where it marked the decisive break of the match.
Starting on the right foot is West Virginia with two baskets, but Davide Moretti from the start loads his shoulders and with two consecutive threes hits the match after 5 ‘, 6-6. Texas Tech finds the first advantage with Ramsey, but West Virginia continues to attack well and scores a break that allows him to go to +5 in the half-time, 11-16. Another threes by Moretti brings Texas Tech closer, responding blow by blow to the opponents’ baskets, but West Virginia manages to dig and maintain a significant advantage at the end of the first period, going to rest +6. After 20 minutes of play, the score is 37-31 in favor of West Virginia.
The second half opens well for the Red Raiders who thanks to another threes by Moretti approach their opponents, who, however, already at the beginning of the second half, thanks to an important partial, manage to find the first double-digit advantage, 50- 38 for WV 9 ‘from the end. Texas Tech tries to raise its head and, with a lot of heart, falls to -6 but, thanks to two offensive mistakes from close range, it cannot conclude its comeback. West Virginia, at the end of the game, takes off, reconsolidating its advantage and winning the game with the score of 66-54.
For Davide Moretti, surely the best of his team, a great performance especially from the offensive point of view, which allowed his team to try to fight for the victory. The # 25 closes with 16 points, 3 assists, 2 stolen balls, 1 rebound in 38 minutes.
