Old Timer's View on Tonight's Game Virginia has a slight class rating above Texas Tech and will be the favorite in tonight's game. They are a more defensive-minded team while Texas Tech is a more offensive type team. Virginia has played a tougher schedule while TT's schedule is slightly lower in character. Although I don't see the game as a runaway but a fairly close match with Virginia winning by 6 to 10 points. TT will have a chance at victory throughout, but Virginia will ward off the offensive challenge that TT will provide in the last 5 minutes.
Texas Tech was tougher then I thought. They took longer to succome then I had figured as they were one fighting team...Virginia was delayed but not denied victory which fell between the -6-10 mark...Texas Tech at the end was soundly defeated and the margin would have increased if the game for some reason continued..
It was the perfect ending to a see saw season and showed much promise especially for IONA's immediate furure...Our future re-loading proccess will brighten up interest and hopefully bring to 2019-20 much basketball joy.....!!!!!!OT
