Saturday Morning Notes

Texas Tech Basketball:

LAJ's Jeff Walker has an article about how Tech needs this win, and there are some pretty interesting quotes from assistant coach Stew Robinson that I want to quote. This quote on Jackson:

"The movement wasn't there and that was part of it, and Jay, he could have done other things," Robinson said. "He wasn't very hard to guard and that spells disaster for us. Despite all that, we still had a chance to win, though."

Once again we have a coach calling out someone on the team. I think that Knight and the rest of the bunch want the players to take some ownership in the team, hopefully the team and Jackson know that if somethings not working, they need to figure out how to fix it.

Robinson on Burgess:

"We had a couple of guys step up. Plefka and Voskuil reached double figures, but we didn't get anything from Charlie (Burgess)," Robinson said. "He had the ball in his hand about 80 percent of the time and we've got to get production, especially when Jay is in a bind."

I couldn't agree more, Burgess has to do something other than take wild-a#% shots.

DMN's Tim MacMahon details Tech's deficiencies and Knight can't figure out why.

"If I knew that, I wouldn't be coaching," Knight said when asked why his team came out sluggish in Tuesday's loss to Nebraska. "I'd be too smart to coach. I can't figure it out. I don't know why."

FWST's Wendell Barnhouse takes a look at the Duquene basketball team, which shouldn't be any interest to any of you, other than this was the team where a player was almost killed and four otheres were injured at an on-campus party (none of those players have played the entire year). I'ts a good read.

Texas Tech Basketball:

I'm starting to get a little worreid about the team on the diamond, Tech loses 12-7 to Northwestern in the first game of the Red Raider Classic on Friday. Tech is put themselves in the hole very early as Ramos, Schurr and Seefeld gave up 8 earned runs in the first 8 innings. LAJ's George Watson details the game and it appears there's plenty of blame to go around (offense, defense and pitching). Here's box score and notes:

Weekend Note: I realize now how sad my life is when I tell you yesterday that my wife is going out of town and I'm going to be spending my weekend blogging. Despite this realization, I'm still going to do this.
