Defeat gained despite a great performance by Davide Moretti with 23 points per score.
A very unlucky tournament for coach Beard’s boys who, after the injured Ramsey, run into two consecutive defeats. Certainly, there are also positive things to be drawn from these two games, like the character of the Red Raiders that allowed him to get back into the game in both matches, even if the victory didn’t come at the end.
An equal start between the two teams with multiple hits and basket responses and a substantial parity for the first 8 minutes of play, then Creighton turns on, but above all Texas Tech goes out. The opponents begin to take off scoring consistently, while the Red Raiders struggle to respond and after 20 minutes they go to rest on -14. At the end of the first half the scoreboard reads 46-32 in favor of the opponents.
The return to the field is worthy of a great team with a great character, because the boys of coach Beard, within 10′ cancel the opponent break and impact the match at 61, thanks to a partial signed by the team leaders, with Davide Moretti protagonist with 10 points scored. It’s a new game, starting 7 ‘from the end. Creighton tries to start again several times, but Texas Tech always manages to catch it again, up to the basket on Clarke’s final siren that sets the score on 74-74 and sends everyone to the overtime.
At the overtime, probably due to the physical and mental fatigue due to the comeback of the second half, the Red Raiders do not have enough to keep up with the last partial scored by Creighton, who eventually won the victory with the score of 83-76.
For Davide Moretti, leader in terms of points and personalities, 23 points, 1 assist and 1 ball stolen in 39 minutes.
