In the College Basketball power rankings, Iowa State defeated Texas Tech

The defence of Texas Tech carried the team of the Red Raiders to a score of 15-1 at the beginning of the game. This did not allow a single opponent to score more than a single point as far as possession of the ball is concerned. It even established itself as the primary defensive unit in the entire country. And then the questions related to the offensive line of gameplay followed. The major question was does that Texas Tech has a lot of firepower for winning the game while the defence struggles.

The spectators of the game got a taste of the Wednesday night, when another team, Iowa State went straight into Lubbock and made the Texas Tech upset with 68-64. The Cyclones scored around 41 points in the first half of the game, and then they took a severe lead till the intermission of the game. The scenario was not usual as the Red Raiders needed some major comeback in the second-half multiple times in recent weeks.

The Red Raiders have struggled hard enough for finding a strong and a consistent offence, and they can’t even get the clutch to stop. The Texas Tech managed to tie the game with under two minutes left with Jarrett Culver’s 16 rebounds and 20 points. It was then, Iowa State came right back at Texas Tech and buried a pull-up jumper on the team and then it got into a transition layup and later took the lead in the game.

As far as the rankings in college football go Texas Tech doesn’t drop out of the race too now. One of the reasons is that Chris Beard earns the elite defence in the game. Nevertheless, the question related to offensive consistency is still a part of the game. The supporting cast of Culver is going to need to step up before he moved forward when the defence suffered.
