Texas Tech shot 43.1 percent from the floor in that one and won the rebounding battle 45-29 (13-9 offensive). 

As for Ohio State, they had a nice outing in the Cincinnati game Tuesday. The Buckeyes shot 46.9 percent from the floor and had 42 team rebounds (19 offensive). I’m leaning Texas Tech cover-wise, but I can see Ohio State making things difficult.
