A great offensive and mental test by the Red Raiders who take off from the second half of the first half and never stop, annihilating the opponents basket after basket. A good test also from the point of view of character for Texas Tech who, despite the wide advantage, never gave up the blow, remaining concentrated until the end. The boys of coach Beard thus obtain a very useful victory both for morale and for the ranking.
The basket that opens the dances of the match is by Davide Moretti, followed then by his teammate Ramsey, but the Cyclones after the first minutes marked Texas Tech, take control of the match thanks to a partial 8-0, 4-8. The Red Raiders bounce back, the opponents respond while maintaining the lead, but Texas Tech manages to get back on top in the half-time, 21-18 after 10 minutes of play. In the second half of the first period, the Red Raiders are offensively lethal and, in no time, they mark a heavy break, which allows them to reach even +22, 49-27 at 2’ from the end of time. Iowa State tries to bounce back five consecutive points, but the first-half goal is Texas Tech. The score after 20’ is 51-35 in favor of the Red Raiders.
At the start of the second half, Iowa State tries to reduce the disadvantage, but Texas Tech always remains very focused and responds blow by blow to each attacking opponent, leaving his advantage practically unchanged at 10’ from the end, 65-50. The last part of the race is pure garbage time, which only serves the Red Raiders to increase their advantage, with the opponents who are no longer mentally in the game. At the final siren the score is 87-57 in favor of Texas Tech.
For Davide Moretti a good first half from the offensive point of view. Closes the match with 9 points, 2 assists and 1 rebound in 34 minutes.
