Tubby Smith has the option to go big or small depending on opponent
Tubby Smith has a luxury.
With such a versatile roster this season, the second-year Texas Tech coach can go big with a commanding center or small with plenty of quickness on the perimeter.
So far this season, the Red Raiders have made their living in the paint, scoring 46 percent of their points down low.
Freshman center Norense Odiase is a major factor in that productivity.
At 6-foot-9, most consider Odiase an undersized center.
He hasn’t let that stop him.
