Preview: #8 Butler vs. #9 Texas Tech

Butler vs. Texas Tech

This Thursday the NCAA Tournament starts up and one of the first games is Butler Bulldogs against the Texas Tech Red Raiders. Both of these teams are good three point shooting teams and that I believe will decide the game. Texas Tech is shooting 41 percent on 3-pointers in its last 11 games. Butler is 23rd in the nation in 3 point shooting percentage. The Bulldogs are averaging 38.7 percent for the whole season. Although Butler is terrible defending the three with opponents shooting over 35 percent from deep against them this year. Both teams should be well rested seeing that the both lost their first game in their conference tournament. The Bulldogs are a 4 point favorite and I agree with this. I think the game will be very close but I see Butler coming out on top and facing Virginia on Saturday.
