Texas Tech big man Warren Washington dominates his counterpart
Warren Washington played by far his best game as a Red Raider. In fact, he absolutely dominated his counterpart, Kadin Shedrick.
Washington ended the game with 15 points, 3 boards, and 3 blocks and at times, he was the focal point of the Tech offense. In fact, he was able to repeatedly overpower Shedrick in the post.
The 6-foot-11 Texas center came in averaging over 11 points per game but ended the night with only two points on 1-7 shooting. At times, it looked like Washington was a grown man while Shedrick was a pudgy kid who had no hope of checking the Red Raider center.
Also, Robert Jennings deserves some credit for the game he played when Washington was off the court. The sophomore forward was impactful with five points, all of which came at important moments.
In this game, we worried that Texas's size advantage would be problematic and it was when it came to rebounding. However, Washington was by far the best post player on the court and he took his game to a new level in his Big 12 debut. That's the Warren Washington that Tech needs to see the rest of the season.
