Texas Tech @ No. 13 Tennessee

Current Records: Texas Tech 6-1; Tennessee 6-1

What to Know

The Texas Tech Red Raiders will take on the #13 Tennessee Volunteers at 7 p.m. ET on Tuesday at Madison Square Garden. Tennessee will be strutting in after a victory while the Red Raiders will be stumbling in from a loss.

It was close but no cigar for Texas Tech as they fell 72-68 to the Providence Friars last Wednesday. Guard Terrence Shannon Jr. (17 points) was the top scorer for Texas Tech.

Meanwhile, Tennessee didn't have too much trouble with the Colorado Buffaloes on the road this past Saturday as they won 69-54. Tennessee's guard Kennedy Chandler did his thing and had 27 points.

The Red Raiders are expected to lose this next one by 4. Those burned by picking them against the spread last week might want to keep in mind that the team has not yet dropped back-to-back games against the spread this season.

Texas Tech's defeat took them down to 6-1 while Tennessee's win pulled them up to 6-1. A win for Texas Tech would reverse both their bad luck and Tennessee's good luck. We'll see if Texas Tech manages to pull off that tough task or if Tennessee keeps their momentum going instead.
