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.

The two teams now face each other openly, responding basket after basket and keeping the match in balance, but always with Texas ahead, 47-48 at 7’ from the end. At 6’ from the end, however, Texas Tech’s overtaking finally arrives and manages to put his head forward again, after the advantages of the first minutes of the game. The distance between the teams is minimal, with the final minutes characterized by overtaking and counter-passing, in which, however, at 1.42” from the end, Texas Tech is above for 58-57. In the final minutes the Red Raiders show their number one trademark, that is the defense, and make life in Texas difficult, trying in vain to go forward again but is stopped 3 times in a row by the Holyfield’s stalks .

In overtime Kentucky starts off very strong, making a 5-0 partial in one minute and immediately going to +5, 69-64 at 3.51” from the end. The Red Raiders answer Edwards’ triple, Kentucky does the same with Sestina, but it is still Edwards and then Terrence Shannon jr from the line that allow Texas Tech to gnaw the opponent’s advantage and equalize the match at 1.13 “from the end, 72-72. Kentucky moves forward from the line, the Red Raiders respond with a McCullar jumper, but on the 74-74 ball in hand, they cannot capitalize on the attack and score. Decisive are the two free finals marked by Richards 10” from the end, which deliver the victory to Kentucky. The final score is 74-76 in favor of the opponents, with Texas Tech that after a great race is forced to capitulate.

For Davide Moretti, present for 44 minutes on the parquet, a good offensive and defensive test, especially in the second period where he made himself the protagonist of the comeback that allowed Texas Tech to play the overtime. Closes with 15 points, 3 assists, 3 rebounds and 2 stolen balls.
