A two-game road trip is never a good thing for a team coming off a 3-game losing skid including 2 losses at home. WIth Texas awaiting NU on their return to Lincoln, picking up at least one win in Lubbock or Boulder is going to be huge to preserving NIT hopes.

Fortunately, these are two very winnable games. Texas Tech is one of the worst teams in the conference for turning the ball over, and NU is one of the best in the country at creating turnovers. The Red Raiders are very front-court heavy, which give NU's guards a distinct speed advantage. Nebraska can win the game if they focus on high percentage shots to set up the pressure and the transition game.
