Double-T Nation News:
I know that I haven't so much as mentioned the NCAA Tournament, in part because I just haven't had the energy to talk about the Tournament without Texas Tech in the mix. Not only that, I very much doubt that you guys care about who I think will win and to continue my defiance, I will not be filling out a bracket. I'm sure that makes me un-American, but we're going to be able to talk about spring practice in less than a week.
In no particular order, DTN's Top Four:
- Here's how to watch the NCAA Tournament on your computer while you're working.
- Here are the games you local affiliate will carry today.
- Sportsline's Dennis Dodds with a pre-spring Top 25 and Texas Tech checks in at 12.
- Bring On The Cats is all growns up, make sure and check out BOTC's tribute to Texas Tech.
Texas Tech Basketball:
South Plains defeated Georgia Perimeter, 88-83, and Texas Tech signee, David Okorie, had a very efficient game. How about 7-11 from the field, including 1-2 from beyond the 3-point line, for 18 points. I'm interested, very interested.
Texas Tech Baseball:
Don't forget that the next 10 games are in Lubbock, starting with this series against the Longhorns. Go watch some good baseball this week.

LAJ's George Watson has his preview of the Texas series and talks with pitching coach Dan Spencer about the issues that his 1 and 2 starters are currently having. Watson notes that Spencer is trying to balance between winning now and building the program:
Right now, Spencer doesn't think there are many options in replacing Ramos or Karns:
It will be interesting to see how Ramos and Karns respond after Spencer has publicly come out (and rightfully so) talk about their jobs not being safe.
