Texas Tech Is One of Just Two Teams to Secure Back-to-Back Elite 8 Berths
Texas Tech basketball's 2018-2019 season was one for ages, but even in the post-season, the team is defying expectations.
Texas Tech Athletics noted how the Red Raiders and Duke are the only two teams in this year's Elite 8 that also played there last year.
Texas Tech faces off Saturday, March 30th, against Gonzaga at 5:09 p.m. (CT) on TBS in a showdown that's being nationally-touted as a battle between the Bulldogs' offensive onslaught and the Red Raiders' stalwart defense.
It's that lock-em-down defense which has helped the team thrive in this year's NCAA Tournament.
