The Texas Tech Red Raiders managed to defeat the Buffalo Bulls on Sunday to advance to the Sweet 16 portion of the NCAA Tournament.
It wasn’t an upset by March’s standards, but if Chris Beard is to have his side of the story told, it would be if we used preseason projections to talk about the game.
“We’re not supposed to be here,” Beard said. “They picked us bottom of the Big 12 (in a pre-season poll) and we haven’t gotten much respect this year, but these guys have continued to keep a chip on their shoulder and just realize that we can do a lot of things if we play as a team.”
Jarrett Culver scored 16 points and grabbed 10 rebounds for Texas Tech.
After dominating in the second round of the NCAA Tournament, up next for the Texas Tech Red Raiders is a Sweet 16 game against the Michigan Wolverines on Thursday.
