A complicated match, especially from an offensive point of view, in which the Red Raiders had so many difficulties against the zone defense and found little luck in three-point shot.

The first two points of the match are signed by Davide Moretti from the line, but the first half is definitely not in the sign of the Red Raiders who suffer so much the zone defense and the defensive intensity of Iowa and collect 7 turnovers and 20 minutes really difficult to shoot . After the first period, the team of coach Beard, goes to rest at -10, on 36-26.

In the second half Texas Tech restarts better and, also guided by Davide’s triples, they manage to get back into the game, shortening up to -3 to 4 minutes from the end of the race. The last minutes of the game are hard fought, with the Red Raiders able to reach even a minimum distance from Iowa, but the opponents in the last minute take the decisive break that will allow them to win the final victory. The game ends with a score of 72-61 in favor of Iowa.

For Davide Moretti 8 points, 1 assist and 1 steal in 36 minutes.
