Tarleton State vs. Utah Tech Prediction

I’m Tarleton State here. The Texans have been the far better team as of late, and while Utah Tech has home court on their side here, I don’t think that’s enough for the Trailblazers here. Utah Tech’s struggled against the better teams in the conference all year long and I look for this game to be no different. Give me Tarleton State here.
