Alabama State Hornets vs Texas Tech Red Raiders Predictions 12/28/2021


The objective for Texas Tech‘s coaches is straightforward: Get another look at the roster to narrow down a rotation, especially with junior Terrance Shannon’s future uncertain as he recovers from back spasms.


Similarly, for the Red Raiders, another tune-up against an overmatched opponent, after a 78-46 victory over Eastern Washington on Dec. 22, provides an opportunity to bolster confidence that was shattered in a 69-55 defeat to Gonzaga on Dec. 18.


The Red Raiders had one of their most effective halves of the year against Eastern Washington, shooting 70.8% (17 of 24) from the field before halftime, aided by 6-of-11 3-point efficiency. 


By halftime, Texas Tech had a 50-27 advantage, but first-year Red Raiders coach Mark Adams felt his team’s execution was critical due to Eastern Washington’s tenacity. After the first 5:13 of the match, the Eagles had a 13-12 lead.


Texas Tech’s team was well-balanced, with six players scoring between 8 and 12 points. Bryson Williams and Adonis Arms both had 12 points, while Kevin Obanor had 11 points and seven rebounds to lead the Raiders.


  • The total went UNDER in 4 of Texas Tech’s last 5 matches.
  • The University of Texas Tech Red Raiders is 8-2 SU in their last 10 matches this season.
  • The total went UNDER in 5 of Texas Tech’s last 6 matches in the SWAC.
