Utah State Aggies vs. Texas Tech Red Raiders

The Utah State Aggies square off against the Texas Tech Raiders in the first round of the tournament in the 11 vs 6 seed matchup. Tech lost their first game of the BIG 12 tournament losing to Texas. The Aggies are coming off a loss in the Mountain West Tournament to 6 seed San Diego State.

Utah State has one of the best lowkey big men in the nation this year. Junior center Neemias Queta has not gotten a lot of national publicity but has been dominant all year.This guy is league bound. Queta is averaging 15, 10, and 3 and is a big reason why Utah State is as good as they are. The Aggies rank eight in the nation in adjusted defensive efficiency. Im gonna back the Aggies with the points here but do not be surprised for a Utah State outright upset winner. INJECT THE AGGIES IN TO MY VEINS!

The Pick: Utah State +4 @ -110
