We're getting the rested and more consistent team as an underdog. You don't see that very often in tournament play. Louisiana Tech is the better team on the offensive side of the ball and has fresh legs to run the Monarchs out of the gym in the second half as tired legs are sure to kick in.
I'll gladly take Lousiana Tech here.
