How to find today's game and your open thread to talk about it!

John Reed-USA TODAY Sports

First, if you missed Tuco's full Cancun Challenge Preview, be sure to check it out.

Copied directly from it is this tidbit on Texas Tech for tonight's game:

Auburn knows their first opponent will be Texas Tech. Tubby Smith built the Red Raiders into a solid program over the last three seasons before leaving to coach Memphis. Last year, the Red Raiders finished 19-13 and made the NCAA Tournament. Smith was replaced by Arkansas Little Rock coach, Chris Beard.

Tech returns a solid core of experienced starters from last year's team including Zach Smith, Keenan Evans, and Justin Gray. The Red Raiders added a talented JUCO transfer, Shadell "Shotty" Millinghaus. Tech is expected to be a solid, mid-level Big 12 team this season.

The Red Raiders are 3-0. In their last game, they rallied from a 15 point first half deficit to beat a pesky Eastern Kentucky squad, 90-71. Auburn beat EKU by a similar 85-64 margin last week.

The teams seem fairly evenly matched. Tech is a savvy, upperclassman heavy team; Auburn is young and energetic. Both are well-coached. The outcome of this game will say a lot about both team's futures.
