Texas Tech is Victorious Over TCU, 75-69

Texas Tech is Victorious Over TCU, 75-69

The Red Raiders are now 14-4 (3-3). I really believed all week that Tech would and should win this game. TCU is a much improved team this year, but we are a more talented and experienced team. Tech came out hot in the first half and lead by as many as twelve points. TCU had to feel good about only being down eight points at the half considering they were outplayed most of the way. At the break Tech lead 41-33. Tech lead the entire game until the 14:41 mark and then the game became an absolute dog fight. For about the last eight minutes of the game Tech was in the bonus and that was probably...

Texas Tech Basketball Tale Of The Tape: TCU Horned Frogs (14-3, 3-2)

Texas Tech Basketball Tale Of The Tape: TCU Horned Frogs (14-3, 3-2)

Will the Red Raiders rebound against the Horned Frogs in Lubbock? Texas Tech is coming off of an ugly loss to Oklahoma (7-9) and will look to bounce back against TCU at home. The Red Raiders find themselves in a very crucial game early in Big 13 play. If they win they go back to .500 in the conference, if they lose they fall to 2-4. TCU is looking like a brand new team this season and much of the credit is in thanks to new head coach Jamie Dixon. Who wins this one in Lubbock, the Red Raiders or the new-and-improved Horned Frogs? Tune into FSSW at 6:30 PM CST. TCU Key...

Texas Tech Baseball Season Preview - Schedule Outlook

Texas Tech Baseball Season Preview - Schedule Outlook

We begin the baseball season preview with a look at the schedule this year Exactly one month from today the Red Raiders will begin the 2017 season, looking to defend their conference title and head back to Omaha for the 3rd time in 4 years. In the 2015 season, Tech did not make the postseason tournament after finishing 3rd in the Big 12, and many believed it was due to a weaker non-conference schedule, and a less than stellar record against that schedule. Last year the Red Raiders went 28-15 in a much tougher schedule, something that Coach Tadlock wants to continue this season. Season...

Texas Tech Needs to Start Winning on the Road

Texas Tech Needs to Start Winning on the Road

To make the NCAA tournament, the Red Raiders will have to right the ship away from Lubbock… On Saturday night, Texas Tech lost a tough game in Norman to the Oklahoma Sooners, who were coming off a seven game losing streak. Before the win, OU was one of just two winless teams in the Big 12. On the surface, it was a great opportunity for Texas Tech to notch their first Big 12 road win. Instead, OU’s best player Jordan Woodard returned from injury and Odomes had a career day. Now 0-3 on the road in conference play, Texas Tech needs to find a few wins outside the United Supermarkets Arena...

Texas Tech Basketball Tale of the Tape: Oklahoma Sooners (6-9)

Texas Tech Basketball Tale of the Tape: Oklahoma Sooners (6-9)

Can Texas Tech notch its first Big 12 road win? Now 2-2 in Big 12 play, Texas Tech hits the road to take on a struggling Oklahoma team. The weather is supposed to be snowy/icy, and OU students aren’t all back on campus yet, so it could be a smaller crowd than usual. Currently tied for 5th in the Big 12 standings and with the conference looking tough as a whole, any road win is a big deal for Texas Tech. After dropping a game they should have won in Ames and falling short in Lawrence last weekend, the Red Raiders are still in search of their first Big 12 road win. The game will be...

Texas Tech: Path to the Postseason 1.13

Another Win Over a Ranked Team Pushes Red Raiders Into Tournament Conversation The Red Raiders escaped with a 66-65 win over the #25 Kansas State Wildcats on Tuesday to improve to 13-3 (2-2) on the season. The second straight one-point home win over a ranked team was the perfect response to a tough loss at Kansas last Saturday. The team heads into the weekend tied for fifth in the conference and will look to earn their first Big 12 road win of the season against Oklahoma. With the Sooners off to a slow start, a road win here is needed to keep pace in the race for the NCAA...

Texas Tech Knocks Off #25 Kansas State, 66-65

Texas Tech Knocks Off #25 Kansas State, 66-65

The Red Raiders are now 13-3 (2-2). Texas Tech returned home tonight to face the newly ranked Kansas State Wildcats. The first half started fast and for the first ten minutes Tech’s offense was playing about as well as I have seen during conference play. With ten minutes to go KSU picked up the defensive intensity and Tech had a hard time scoring. Neither team ended up shooting the ball well in the half, although KSU began to heat up, and the score at the half had Tech trailing 31-28. The second half brought us a complete grind of a game with Tech’s half court offense really struggling...

Red Raiders in the Pros - Wild Card Edition

Red Raiders have a less than stellar weekend to start the playoffs Oakland Raiders 14 @ Houston Texans 27 3 members of the Raiders have ties with Texas Tech, wide receiver Michael Crabtree, defensive end Branden Jackson, and running back DeAndre Washington. Jackson was inactive for this game after getting a few games of experience on special teams. Washington was part of a 3-headed monster at tailback along with Latavius Murray and fellow rookie Jalen Richard. In this game he had just 4 carries for 16 yards, most of which came on a 14 yarder. He also dropped a pass in the flat that could...

Big 12 Basketball Power Rankings, 1.8

Big 12 Basketball Power Rankings, 1.8

Where are the Red Raiders ranked after facing some tough competition? A few conference games into the season, we have a little bit of clarity at the top and bottom of the conference. The middle is still jam packed with parity. 1. Baylor (15-0): Last week’s ranking, 1. Not only is Baylor sitting atop the Big 12 right now, they’re about to earn the number one ranking in the entire nation. It doesn’t mean a whole lot yet since they haven’t played West Virginia or Kansas, but it’s still noteworthy and well-deserved considering their non-conference wins. 2. Kansas (14-1):...

Texas Tech Falls to #3 Kansas, 85-68

The Red Raiders are now 12-3 (1-2) The conference grind continued tonight as Tech traveled to play the #3 ranked Kansas Jayhawks. The first half Tech found themselves down by around ten points most of the way. That changed late in the half with a run that cut the lead to three points with about a minute to play with the ball. But the last minute we unraveled with two bad turnovers and a technical foul call on Livingston that all resulted in KU points. The half ended with the Red Raiders down 37-27. Tech was able to keep the game close most of the second half with the help of Aaron Ross’...

The Red Raiders will face off against the Jayhawks at 6:15 P.M. Texas Tech is coming off of their first Big 12 Conference win against the West Virginia Mountaineers. After losing to Iowa State on the road to open up Big 12 play, Tech had a great bounce-back game at home against the #7 ranked team in the country.

Patrick Mahomes Going Pro is Not Texas Tech’s Biggest Problem in 2017

Patrick Mahomes Going Pro is Not Texas Tech’s Biggest Problem in 2017

“It’s the defense, stupid.” Red Raiders, you can emerge from your shelters now. The sky isn’t falling. Yesterday, Texas Tech quarterback Patrick Mahomes announced he is skipping his senior season and declaring for the NFL draft. He led the nation in passing in 2016 and set an NCAA record for most total yards in a single game against Oklahoma. Without the playmaking ability of Mahomes that Red Raider fans have gotten accustomed to over the past two seasons, it’s not unnatural to enter a chicken little mindset. With redshirt freshman Jett Duffey suspended from Texas Tech for the...

Texas Tech Defeats #7 West Virginia In Overtime, 77-76.

The Red Raiders are now 12-2 (1-1). Guts! This game was a great example of what conference play is all about. You throw a punch and you take a punch, but just keep fighting. You have to protect home court and that is what the Red Raiders did. I thought Tech came out with plenty of energy and ready to attack on both sides of the ball. We all knew WVU would apply full court pressure and after seeing the way we struggled against Iowa State’s second half pressure I was concerned. As it turned out we handled the pressure adequately and managed to shoot 52% from the field in the first half....

Texas Tech Falls In Conference Opener

Texas Tech Falls In Conference Opener

Red Raiders lose to Iowa State, 56-63. After a painfully long break from hoops the Red Raiders were finally back in action tonight. Everyone knew this was going to be their biggest challenge of the season thus far. Going on the road for the conference opener with a sold out crowd is no easy task and in the first half Tech answered the call. The defensive intesity along with good shooting was enough to quiet the crowd and control the game. Tech led 35-25 at the half. The second half started much the same with Tech having an answer every time ISU tried to make a run. With just under 11...
