It makes sense that Michigan and Texas Tech would be a low-scoring affair. The Wolverines play a slow, deliberate pace offensively, and the Red Raiders pride themselves on being tough defensively.
Still, what we’ve seen thus far tonight in Anaheim is ridiculous. With five minutes left in the first half, both teams had barely reached double figures.
Texas Tech led Michigan 13-10 after the first 15 minutes. The paltry offensive display could be attributed both to stout defense and woefully poor shooting.
Even veteran CBS play-by-play man Kevin Harlan couldn’t sugarcoat things on the broadcast, calling the shooting “ridiculously bad” at one point.
Well that's the end of 1Q and neither Texas Tech nor Michigan have a TD yet. pic.twitter.com/ILjA0QMv5u

Whichever team gets its offense enough in gear to win this game, they’ll take on the No. 1 seed Gonzaga Bulldogs in the Elite Eight on Saturday. Gonzaga took down fourth-seeded Florida State earlier tonight.
If you’re feeling brave, you can watch Michigan-Texas Tech on CBS.
You haven’t missed much so far if you haven’t tuned in, but things could always turn around quickly.
