- Just a fantastic game from the seniors: Justin Gray had 12 points and led the way offensively in the first half; Keenan Evans picked things up in the second half and finished with 16 points; Zach Smith was dunking all over the place and had 14 points.
- Texas Tech wore down Purdue. Just wore them down and suffocated them defensively. Purdue had 17 turnovers and that’s just crazy for a team like Purdue.
- The first half was rough offensively, but Texas Tech really found their groove in the second half. The Red Raiders scored 48 points in the second half after only scoring 30 in the first.
- Never before has this team, this program been to the Elite Eight. You are witnessing history. Drink it up.
- I hope you didn’t get what you’re wearing too dirty because you’re wearing it again on Sunday. See you for the Elite Eight.
The Red Raiders defeat the #2 seed Purdue Boilermakers and advance to the Elite Eight.
