Being in that Texas Tech locker room last year, you could tell they felt overlooked and had something to prove. But they also believed in Chris Beard. Covered a bunch of teams that didn’t have that same confidence in a coach.
ST. LOUIS (120p ET)- @BluejayMBB is shorthanded with Marcus Zegarowski sidelined. @LittleRockMBB makes its first NCAA appearance since Chris Beard led Trojans to 2OT upset of Purdue in 2016, which PxP@jasonbenetti reminds analyst @RobbieHummel multiple times. #TwitterTourney2020
