The Texas Tech Red Raiders face the Missouri Tigers, today at 3:00 p.m. The game will be shown in Lubbock on FSN and in the DFW area on channel 21.
SEN's Tim Griffin has been working overtime as he as three articles all with a little bit of Tech basketball news. First, Tim's rankings of the Big 12 has Tech sitting at #1.
Second, Tim always does a nice job on his Big 12 Insider and this week is no different. He has this on the Red Raiders' ability to finish games:
Finally, Tim has this on the parallels between Knight and Huggins (both came from bad situations in their prior stints to turn their new programs around, etc.).
DMN's Tim MacMahon's article discusses the newfound depth on this Red Raider team, noting that it's been someone different leading the team in scoring the past 4 games. Pat Knight (who I am beginning to love as a future head coach more and more each day) had this to say about Jackson and his teammates:
Pat then states that it's been the consistency of the frontcourt that's been bothersome and I've been saying for a while, I'd love it if one of the frontcourt players (Plefka, Dora, White, Prince, Suljagic, etc.) would be a consistent scoring threat each game:
Finally, LAJ's Jeff Walker has an excellent preview of today's game. Assistant Coach Stew Robinson has this to say about the potential for a let-down:
Jeff grabs a quote from Stew regarding what I mentioned in my game preview (see the entry below) that Mizzou is aggressive defensively (over 11 steals a game):
As for me, I'll be posting a game day thread later in the morning, however, I may have to leave during half-time of the game, but want to encourage each of you to contribute to the game day thread.
GO RAIDERS . . .
