This is the Texas Tech team I have been waiting to see all year. We were fortunate to see the Red Raiders in the 2015 Puerto Rico Tip off. After being down only by 3 points at halftime to 16th ranked Utah we knew they had a good 1st half team. It appeared that if they could win the close ones late they would be a force. Texas Tech went on a 10 game winning streak before losing to 13th ranked Iowa state 76-69. Everyone knew the next series of games would gauge where the season may be headed. Our fears were real and when the smoke cleared Texas Tech had lost 4 more games to ranked opponents, 3 by 10 points or less. The team responded well by taking down 3 straight ranked teams. First was 14th ranked Iowa State when Keenan Evans drained a deep three-pointer. Most feel it was an upset but they only lost by 7 the last time they met. Second was 21 ranked Baylor which they easily handled. At one point in the game the Red Raiders were up by 20 points. Third was suppose to be a dog fight against 3rd ranked Oklahoma and that is just what it was with the score ending 65-63. Texas Tech can make the statement they want to with a win over 2nd ranked Kansas!!!
