Kentucky v. Texas Tech: Three Keys to the Game

January 25, 2020

If you find yourself experiencing deja vu tonight when the Cats take on the Texas Tech Red Raiders, do not be surprised. Texas Tech is almost a carbon copy of the Arkansas team Kentucky beat a week ago, with a slightly better defense. Arkansas has the 97th ranked offense, according to KenPom; Texas Tech ranks 98th. Arkansas has the 11th best defense; Texas Tech ranks 7th. Arkansas doesn't have anyone over 6-foot-8, neither does Texas Tech. The similarities are striking, so don't be surprised to see a similar game in a hostile arena.
