Pre-Game: @ Texas Tech

Washington (5-0) @ Texas Tech (7-0)

Players to Watch

John Roberson: The key matchup of the game could be how Venoy Overton can hold his ground against Tech’s pure guard Roberson who is one of the most efficient players at the point in the nation. The offense will be orchestrated by Roberson, and with the Red Raiders almost certainly going to implement a zone defense against the Huskies after the success Montana had in Seattle a few days ago. If Overton can eliminate the source for the Red Raider’s offense, than the Huskies should cruise to victory in their first road game of the year. But watch out for Roberson’s deep ball shooting which allows the Red Raiders to play a more spread out offense.

Tyreese Breshers: Romar has not confirmed yet whether or not Breshers will be starting again, but no matter what the play of the redshirt freshman is vital for the Huskies to perform well in their first road game of the year. Based on the post play that the Huskies have had over the past few games, there needs to be a force to step up and take control of the post. Since it will get tiring to name Matthew Bryan-Amaning as this player every week, Breshers s the logical next guy since he, like MBA, has had a game where he shined for Washington.

Notes:

  • Texas Tech has yet to leave the state of Texas for a game yet this season, so the Red Raiders will be playing in very familiar territories, while it is Huskies’s first game outside the state of Washington
  • The Red Raiders return three starters off of last year’s team, although that raises the question of whether or not that is a good thing seeing as they went 14-19 last season
  • Washington has never lost against Texas Tech in Lubbock

Projected Lineups

Washington: G: Venoy Overton G: Isaiah Thomas SF: Quincy Pondexter PF: Tyreese Breshers C: Matthew Bryan-Amaning

Texas Tech: G: John Roberson G: Nick Okorie F: Mike Singletary F: D’Walyn Roberts C: Darko Cohadarevic
