In my quest to cover the NCAA tournament in general, I'm going to devote a little more time and energy to this Tech squad and this last game over the weekend.
We've got lots of stuff going on after Tech's loss to Boston College yesterday. DMN's Tim MacMahon has his game report. Knight had this to say about the defense:
Tim also has has a game notebook which includes Knight's praise of Alan Voskuil and Knight commenting on next year's group of kids (which seems a little odd):
Finally, Tim details the rough day Jay Jackson had. As I said in my game review, this was always the problem:
And this from BC coach, Al Skinner:
Jackson never demands the ball and that is where the problem lies. Jay was always capable of demanding the ball, but it never happened, not consistently during his career.
LAJ's Jeff Walker also had the Red Raiders covered. Here's Jeff's game story and focuses on the senior who played their last game. Jeff also has his Texas Tech Notebook from the game.
Texas Tech Baseball:
The Red Raiders beat Nebraska 7-6 in the 11th inning Thursday night. I'll let LAJ's George Watson detail the game in his game review, but that's a big win against a ranked team.
