The Shock Exchange was looking forward to the Florida Gators and Texas Tech Red Raiders match-up in round two of the NCAA tournament. Texas Tech has tremendous size and the Shock Exchange was curious how they would match up against Florida’s athleticism and the ball handling wizardry of Chris Chiozza. The game was played at high level. Florida’s athleticism negated the Red Raiders’ size, while the Red Raiders’ Zach Smith and Jarrett Culver were as slick with the ball as Chiozza.
Freshman Zhaire Smith (Air Zhaire) broke the Internet with his 360 alley-oop against Stephen F. Austin. Texas Tech threw him another alley-oop that put them up by three points.

Florida had three wide open threes that could have sent the game into overtime, but it wasn’t meant to be. Air Zhaire and Texas Tech survive and advance.
