DTN Daily Diatribe | Texas Tech News, Notes and Links | 2012-03-19

ODDS AND ENDS | I've updated the baseball post. You probably don't want to read it as Texas Tech was swept by Baylor this weekend (official site). I've updated the baseball post and someone needs to tell me who the weekend starters are going to be. Sigh. I do have a football post scheduled for later this morning, a glorious return of Five Questions. One other thing, Ohio University has a good player. D.J. Cooper. He's a sophomore now and after his freshman year he was named the freshman of the year for the MAC. Cooper didn't say this, but his mother, said that Baylor's Scott Drew called and tried to lure his son from Ohio, which is totally illegal (here's a NY Times story). Baylor has whipped Texas Tech in every sport this year, but something just doesn't feel right. I should probably remind you about the time that a Baylor assistant texted the high school coach of a highly rated player from Columbia (the country, not the city) that if the player committed to another school that player would be back playing in Columbia. That player committed to Indiana and Drew hired an attorney to defend these allegations.

LADY RAIDER BASKETBALL | The Lady Raiders took down Tulane, 69-55 (official site) and was led by F Jordan Barncastle with 21 points. It seems like the Lady Raiders have found their groove, but this all feels too late. RndRckTTU has your post game thoughts. LAJ's David Just (beware of video autoplay) has a recap of the game, a notebook, and a short story on the break-out game of Kelsi Baker.

TEXAS TECH SOFTBALL | Much like the baseball team, the softball team is doing great in non-conference play, winning again, 9-0 over Seton Hall (official site). Last year, the softball team was terrific in non-conference play, but faltered in conference play. The softball team will take the week off.
