Texas Tech Falls to #9 West Virginia in Double Overtime, 83-74.

Texas Tech Falls to #9 West Virginia in Double Overtime, 83-74.

The Red Raiders are now 17-10 (5-9). The Red Raiders retuned to action after the big Monday night upset of #6 Baylor to face their third top ten team in a row. The schedule has been about as brutal as I can remember for Tech basketball. Everyone knows the Red Raiders desperately need to pick up some road wins, but today’s game was not a must win. The first half brought us a tight game with Tech showing early they were up to the challenge. Niem Stevenson led the charge with seventeen points and at the break Tech had the 33-31. The second half was much of the same early until WVU’s...

Week in review: Red Raiders winning everywhere

Week in review: Red Raiders winning everywhere

Texas Tech is a stickball school. Texas Tech teams picked up some momentum this week on the basketball, baseball, softball and tennis fronts, while the women’s basketball woes continued. Basketball The Red Raider faithful was in a somber mood this time last week after the basketball team dropped a game at home against No. 3 Kansas by one point. It was game that felt like it closed the door on Tech’s NCAA Tournament hopes, and people slowly started to embrace the idea of an NIT appearance. Then Monday happened. The Baylor Bears came to town ranked No. 6 in the nation, and simply got...

Texas Tech: Path to the Postseason 2.17

Tourney Talk Resumes After Upsetting Baylor After a devastating loss to Kansas on Saturday, the Red Raiders responded in the best way possible by upsetting the #4 ranked Baylor Bears in Lubbock Monday night. The team’s second win over a top-10 team this season has rejuvenated its NCAA tournament chances and allowed them to keep pace in the rugged Big 12. The remaining conference schedule offers several other big opportunities to improve the team’s resume. Strength of Schedule Splitting consecutive home games against potential 1-seeds is a great result that fans should be happy about....

Texas Tech Upsets #4 Baylor, 84-78

The Red Raiders are now 17-9 (5-8). The Red Raiders absolutely had to win the game tonight in order to keep their NCAA Tournament hopes alive and win is what they did. I could not be prouder of the way this team responded tonight after such a heartbreaking loss to KU just two days ago. Tech has five conference games to go and I believe they need to go 4-1, but 3-2 could get it done. DOWN GOES NO. 4 BAYLOR!

Texas Tech Loses a Heartbreaker to #3 Kansas, 79-80.

Texas Tech Loses a Heartbreaker to #3 Kansas, 79-80.

The Red raiders are now 16-9 (4-8). The Red Raiders returned home today against the highly touted Kansas Jayhawks. I wasn't ready to declare this game a must win, but after this loss we certainly have to win Monday night against Baylor or I am predicting an invitation to the NIT. Tech played tough today and managed to keep Kansas from ever delivering a knock blow. Keenan Evans was a big part of the reason Tech was able to keep Kansas from running away with the game. He had 25 points and so many clutch shots when Tech needed one. Tech actually took the lead around the 9 minute mark, 61-59,...

Texas Tech: Path to the Postseason 2.10

Red Raiders Have Huge Opportunities Looming After taking care of business last weekend, the Red Raiders lost a heartbreaker Tuesday night in Fort Worth that could be the difference in whether or not they make the NCAA tournament. Now sitting at 4-7 in conference play, Texas Tech will need to finish on a hot streak to have a chance on Selection Sunday. Strength of Schedule The aspect of their resume most likely to hurt the Red Raiders earlier in the season may now be their best chance at stealing a tournament bid.

Texas Tech Loses to TCU in the Final Seconds, 62-61.

Texas Tech Loses to TCU in the Final Seconds, 62-61.

The Raiders are now 16-8 (4-7). Confused. That is how I feel after another conference road loss. We are an older team with plenty of experience, but absolutely cannot win a game on the road. This was a must win for the Red Raiders and they couldn't get it done. I said last week Tech needed to win two of their last four road games and so now they need desperately to win two of three. After a loss like this it feels like all hopes of the NCAA tourney are lost, but technically there is still a shot. We have back to back home games against Kansas and Baylor and must win one. Of course if we...

Jabbar Juluke Returns to Texas Tech

Jabbar Juluke Returns to Texas Tech

Coach Juluke is returning to the Red Raiders coaching staff. After leaving the program in the spring of last year, Jabbar Juluke has rejoined Kliff Kingsbury's coaching staff as the team's running backs coach and associate head coach. Juluke fills the running back coach vacancy left by DeShaun Foster. Foster left for his alma mater UCLA.

However, a few weeks after signing day, he left Texas Tech to take the running backs coach job at LSU. There he coached one of the best running...

Texas Tech beats OU 77-69

After a rough loss in Austin, the Red Raiders needed a win to get back on the horse. In their last game against the Sooners, Texas Tech lost in Norman giving OU one of only two Big 12 wins this season. Tech had gone 2-3 in the five games since their last match up with OU and needed a win in a bad way. These two teams battled early but neither side achieved more than a four point lead until Aaron Ross hit a triple off a Devon Thomas pass with 10 minutes left to put Tech ahead 20-14. After an Anthony Livingston triple the score was 23-14 where it would stay for almost three minutes....

Texas Tech: Path to the Postseason 2.3

The Red Raiders Have Work To Do On Wednesday night, the Red Raiders were unable to end a losing streak in Austin that has now spanned two decades. The 58-62 loss to a struggling Longhorns team marks the third defeat in their last four games and could doom the team’s NCAA tournament hopes. ESPN’s Joe Lunardi has moved Tech to his “next four out” group and estimates that the Red Raiders will need to jump six teams to make their way back into the tourney field. Here’s a closer look at Tech’s updated resume. Strength of Schedule Through one round of the Big 12 gauntlet, the Red...

Texas Tech Falls to Texas, 62-58

The Red Raiders are now 15-7 (3-6). I was not sure what the outcome would be considering the fact the Red Raiders have not won a basketball game in Austin since 1996. Still, even with the twenty game losing streak, I thought we were the better team and had a great opportunity to pick up a much needed road win. After about the first ten minutes of the game it was apparent Tech was not going to beat Texas with ease and the night was going to be a grind. For whatever reason this team severely struggles on the road and if you cannot win on the road you do not get to play in the NCAA tournament....

Three is Key

Three is Key

This season, as the deep shooting goes, so do the Red Raiders. Chris Beard’s new offensive system has brought changes from Tubby Smith’s more stagnant offense. These changes have resulted in a team field goal percentage up from 44.8 percent last season to 49.3 percent this year. Three point shooting this season is vastly improved from last year as well. Last year the team shot 34.6 percent from deep whereas this year the team is shooting 38.4 percent from three. However, this offense isn’t always executed properly. It can be difficult to tell when the offense is functioning well and...

Texas Tech Wins Big Over LSU, 77-64.

Texas Tech Wins Big Over LSU, 77-64.

The Red Raider are now 15-6 (3-5). Tech returned home today for the SEC/Big 12 Challenge against the LSU Tigers. LSU is not that good of a team this year so this was a game where a loss hurts you way more than a win helps. The Red Raiders played a great first half that included only two turnovers and ten three pointers. At the break Tech lead 39-27. The second half looked a lot like the first with the Red Raiders maintaining a double digit lead the entire way. Game Notes: The word on Twitter was Kennan Evans was out with an injury that happened at the end of the Baylor game. Accurate....
