Texas Tech Basketball:
There is a ton of hype on Coach Knight looking to get win #900, but let's focus on the game first.
LAJ's Todd Walker previews the game and his feature story is on the similar nature of both Texas Tech and Oklahoma State, in particular how both teams had bigger expectations, but have so far underachieved. I did like a couple of quotes from Coach Knight. Up first, on what his team needs to approve upon:
Pretty honest, but I think pretty accurate assessment.
Coach Knight has some praise for freshman point guard John Roberson:
DMN's Brandon George has an excellent feature on Coach Knight on the cusp of #900, game milestones. A nice history lesson.
FWST's Dwain Price also features Knight, who gives credit to #900 to longevity. Here's a nice quote from John Roberson who reciprocates the praise to Coach Knight:
"He teaches us so much about the game and the fundamentals and stuff you might overlook when you're a player.
"Everybody's talented on this team, and you might forget about the fundamentals, and he always stresses how to shoot."
In the SAEN, they are predicting that Texas Tech will finish 10th in the Big 12. SAEN's Al Carter, takes a look at the freshmen who are dominating Big 12 play.
