Buffalo - Looking like a No. 6 seed no one wants to play, high-scoring Buffalo breezed into the second round of the NCAA Tournament for the second straight year.

Texas Tech- Jarrett Culver had 29 points, eight rebounds and seven assists to help No. 3 seed Texas Tech shake off a slow start and beat No. 14 seed Northern Kentucky 72-57 in the first round of the NCAA Tournament on Friday.


AthlonSports: "This West Region showdown might be the most noteworthy clash in styles in the Round of 32. Buffalo's exciting and potent offense poses a threat to any opponent, but Texas Tech is uniquely adept at forcing bad shots and turnovers to create their own scoring opportunities.

This is one likely to have a result determined in the relatively early going. If Buffalo can pounce early, as it did in the first round, the Bulls will have the edge against a Texas Tech team not designed to play catch-up. Conversely, Tech's oppressive defense means an early lead could be insurmountable — even for Buffalo's up-and-down style of play."  Prediction: Texas Tech 71, Buffalo 65

College Football News: "Do you like one of the nation’s best offenses or top defenses? Texas Tech can score, too, and Buffalo can bring the defense, but all it might take is one big run from the Bulls to take over. The Red Raiders don’t shoot enough threes to keep up if this gets going, and they’re just okay on the boards against a UB team that attacks everything.

"Texas Tech is fantastic, but Buffalo is on a mission. There’s nothing this team doesn’t do well, and now it appears to be laser-focused. It’ll take the Red Raiders out of their game, and not the other way around."

Buffalo 75, Texas Tech 72
Line: Texas Tech -3.5, o/u: 146

PicksAndParlays.net: Free Betting Pick: Buffalo Bulls +3 - "Buffalo is a sleeper coming in seeded No. 6 and looked very strong in its opening win over Arizona State. The Bulls have won 13 in a row straight up while going 6-7 ATS over the same period. The Texas Tech lost to West Virginia last week in the Big 12 tournament and will be looking past this mid-major Buffalo squad. Final Score Prediction, Buffalo Bulls win and cover ATS 77-71."
