It's been an incredible NCAA Tournament so far, and we're likely in for another treat on Saturday between Texas Tech and Florida. Things could get even wilder than they already have.
No. 3 Texas Tech will be facing off against No. 6 Florida, after both teams handled their Round 1 bids with relative ease in double-digit wins over Stephen F. Austin and St. Bonaventure. Their commanding wins came among a first day that was full of tight games and big upsets.
Both relied on stellar play from a few key players. In the case of Florida, it was a relatively strong team effort. Texas Tech, however, would undoubtedly like if its role players could give the stars, namely Keenan Evans, a bit more help.
For now, however, it's next team up for both sides. Florida is looking to advance to the Sweet 16 for the second consecutive year, while Texas Tech is seeking its first Sweet 16 appearance since 2005, and its third in the current tournament format.
Below you'll find information on how to watch or stream the game.
About No. 3 seed Texas Tech
In just his second season, Texas Tech head coach Chris Beard has done something no Red Raiders coach has done since Bob Knight: Won an NCAA tournament game. Now, however, it's about not settling. As a No. 3 seed, Texas Tech has a tough Round 2 against No. 6 Florida, but Keenan Evans is ready to continue leading this team after putting up 25 points, five assists and six boards in Round 1 against Stephen F. Austin.
About No. 6 seed Florida
Florida was a popular team to put on upset watch against St. Bonaventure, but it handled the No. 11 seed fairly easily in a team effort. Egor Koulachev (20 points) and Jalen Hudson (16 points) helped propel the Gators past the Bonnies, but now the Gators enter the second round as an underdog. Can Florida do what so few teams have this season and contain Evans? That will be the difference in this game in what amounts to a Texas Tech home game.
