The Wolverines are ranked No. 2 in the country in scoring defense, allowing just 58 points per game while the Red Raiders are just a point behind them allowing 59. What will give when the two squads meet today in the Elite Eight? The big keys for MI will lie in rim protection, three-point shooting, and Poole/Matthews getting to their spots and burying the jumpers. The over-under is set at 138 points.

The third-seeded Red Raiders absolutely dominated No. 2 MI in a 63-44 victory in Anaheim on Thursday to once again be on the doorstep of the Final Four. The Red Raiders defense generated 16 turnovers to help overcome being out-rebounded 37-29.

The classic saying goes that defense wins championships, and if that were to hold true this year whoever emerges from the showdown between Texas Tech and MI could be a favorite to cut down the nets in March Madness. Matt Mooney added 10 points, three caroms, two assists and two steals.

Davide Moretti opened up a late lead with the two most important 3-pointers of his life, Tariq Owens came up with a big rejection and the Red Raiders caught a ride straight to Minneapolis with a 75-69 victory over top-seeded Gonzaga on Saturday. Against Florida State, he had three; against Baylor, he had four; and against Fairleigh Dickinson, he had three. While Jarrett Culver managed a team-high 19 points, he was struggling with his shot, going 5-of-19 from the field. The Bulldogs led 38-27 at halftime en route to the win. It shot 36.4 percent from the floor in the second half and just 20 percent from behind the arc.

UB Men and Women Bow Out of NCAA Tournament

Perkins was in violation of NCAA Rule 7, Section 6, Article 9b, which states, "No opponent of the thrower-in shall have any part of his person over the inside plane of the boundary line". Last night we went to a local high school and got shots up and just played shooting games and stuff and some of the younger coaches on the stuff want to keep their legs.

Texas Tech ranks No. 1 in defensive efficiency yet MI is no. 2. Gonzaga provides an even steeper test tonight, but the Bulldogs are also not quite as good defensively as the Wolverines were and the Red Raiders performed admirably on offense Thursday night to pull away in the second half.

Texas Tech is in the Elite 8 for the second-consecutive season. Facing the top-ranked offense in the country with a trip to the Final Four on the line, Tech must contend with a Gonzaga team that is as skilled and versatile as any in the nation.
