Projected seed: 8

Texas Tech's case for the NCAA tournament is helped by some quality wins, including taking down a stalwart Kansas team in convincing fashion, which no doubt grabs the committee's attention. A road victory against Texas also stands out, as winning in a hostile environment is a valuable measurement of a team's mettle. However, the Red Raiders have been somewhat inconsistent, exemplified by losses to Cincinnati and UCF. Critical contests against Baylor and West Virginia offered a chance to boost their resume, but coming up short in these games doesn't bode well for seeding security. While the team doesn't have any disastrous losses, the win against Kansas is the type of victory that does heavy lifting come selection time. The Red Raiders have handled business against lower-ranked teams, but need to demonstrate continued toughness against the higher echelons of competition to maintain or improve their tournament position.
