3/23/2018*TEXAS TECH              
TEXAS TECH: Last season: 18-14.
Who's gone: F Anthony Livingston; F Aaron Ross; G Devon Thomas; F Matthew Temple; F Thomas Brandsma.
Who's back: G Keenan Evans, the team's top scorer at 15.4 points per game while shooting 43 percent on 3-pointers; F Zach Smith, who averaged 12.1 points and team-best 7.2 rebounds; F Justin Gray, who shot 53 percent from the field; G Niem Stevenson.
Who's new: Most of the team with 11 newcomers. Seven are true freshmen along with junior college transfer guards Josh Webster and Hyron Edwards, and two Division I transfers, Tommy Hamilton IV from DePaul and Brandone Francis from Florida.
The Skinny: With five seniors and seven freshmen, Beard was spot-on when he said the team's "chemistry is a work in progress." When the former Red Raiders assistant returned to Texas Tech last year as head coach, he brought in three graduate transfers among six new players. Whether the Raiders can get back to their second NCAA Tournament in 11 seasons will depend on how the seasoned seniors and the youngsters come together on the court.
PURDUE: Last season: 27-8; lost to Kansas in NCAA Tournament regional semifinals
Who's gone: F Caleb Swanigan, F Basil Smotherman, G Spike Albrecht.
Who's back: F Vincent Edwards. The senior preseason all-conference selection might be the Boilermakers' best overall player. He can shoot (48.6 percent), score (12.6), rebound (4.9) and defend. G Carsen Edwards. As a freshman, the other Edwards ' no relation to Vincent ' led Purdue in assists (133) and was tied for the team-high in steals (36). This year, he'll be asked to increase his scoring average from 10.6 points. C Isaac Haas. The 7-foot-2 senior averaged 12.6 points and 5.0 rebounds in just 19.5 minutes last season. With Swanigan off to the NBA, Haas is likely to log more minutes if he stays out of foul trouble.
Who's new: F Matt Haarms. The redshirt freshman used last season to try and add strength. Now the 7-foot-3 Dutch native could fill the role Haas had over the last couple of seasons off the bench. If the Boilermakers play Haas and Haarms together, they could have the biggest front line in the nation.
The Skinny: Yes, the defending Big Ten champs lost the conference player of the year (Swanigan). But they are hardly bereft of talent. Painter has four starters and six of his top seven scorers back. With size, versatility, tournament experience and a team that knows how to defend, look for the four seniors to keep the Boilermakers at or near the top of the conference standings.
Purdue, Texas Tech coaches have history

Neither Purdue coach Matt Painter nor Texas Tech coach Chris Beard said they believe their previous meeting will have any impact when their teams face off in the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament on Friday night in Boston.

But it's still a pretty compelling subplot.

Beard's national profile skyrocketed two years ago when his Arkansas-Little Rock squad, the No. 12 seed in the Midwest Region, upset fifth-seeded Purdue in the opening round, 85-83 in double overtime.

Arkansas-Little Rock fell in the second round against Iowa State and 10 days after the Trojans knocked off the Boilermakers, Beard was hired away by UNLV. But his stay there was brief.

Texas Tech, having been jilted by Tubby Smith when he led the Red Raiders to the tournament and then left for Memphis, used Smith's buyout money to help lure Beard away from UNLV. Beard spent a decade as an assistant at Texas Tech, so it was a surprisingly easy sell for the Red Raiders.

It worked out for Texas Tech as Beard has the program back in the Sweet 16 for the first time since 2005. And as fate would have it, the Red Raiders (26-9) will play the Boilermakers (30-6).

While Painter refuted the idea that Arkansas-Little Rock's win in 2016 will help the Red Raiders on Friday, he knows the kind of tenacity Beard brings to the game.

"His teams play extremely hard," Painter said. "Obviously coming up (with an) Eddie Sutton, Bob Knight background the way they play tough, hard-nosed man-to-man defense. They're very good on the offensive end too at breaking you down."

Along with game planning for the Red Raiders, Painter has to figure out how to keep advancing with 7-foot-2 center Isaac Haas likely out of the lineup. Haas fractured his right elbow in Purdue's first-round victory over Cal State Fullerton on Friday. A report surfaced earlier this week that the school's engineering program was working on an NCAA-approved brace that would allow Haas to Texas Tech.

But Painter, at least with the media, has treated that idea as science fiction.

"I don't think so," Painter said. "Like I've said all along, if you fracture your elbow, it's really hard. It makes for good conversation because he wants to play. I don't think the key is him getting some other apparatus that gets approved by the NCAA. He's still got to be able to shoot a right-handed free throw."

Luckily for the Boilermakers, they're one of the few programs in the country that can sub-in one agile 7-footer for another. While Haas averaged 14.7 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.3 blocks, 7-3 backup Matt Haarms performed well in the second-round victory over Butler. Haarms posted seven points, six boards and two blocks to help the Boilermakers outlast the Bulldogs.

Haarms' defensive presence could be crucial against Texas Tech, which likes to get to the basket on the offensive end.

The Red Raiders have made only 10 3-pointers in the NCAA Tournament, but they're shooting 50 percent from inside the arc. Texas Tech has made a name for itself with point guard Keenan Evans (17.8 points per game) driving for buckets and guard Zhaire Smith finishing ally-oops in impressive fashion.
