Texas Tech Basketball:
Darko v. Okorie. That's right, two Texas Tech signees battled last night, Darko Cohadarevic of Seward College and Nick Okorie of South Plains played in a semi-final game, and South Plains won 77-65 (boxscore). Cohadarevic led his team with 21 points off of 8-17 shooting, and pulling down only 3 rebounds. Last night was not Okorie's night as he made only 3-12 shots for 8 points, but he did have 5 boards, 4 assists and no turnovers. Cohadarevic apparently got a bloody nose and was back in as soon as possible, that's the kind of stuff I like to hear. SPC will play Salt Lake, Utah for the championship tonight, tipoff is at 8:00 p.m. I also wanted to link to the two boxscores from Thursday's action: Okorie and Cohadarevic.

That's what we like to see. Down early, the Red Raiders battled back to beat the Longhorns, 7-5. Tanner Rindels led the offense, going 3-4 with a home run and 3 RBI, while starter A.J. Ramos must have done enough not to get beat, going 5.1 innings, giving up 4 hits, 4 earned runs, 6 WALKS, and striking out 6. Ramos' pitch count is still way too high (111 pitches), but he got the job done today. James Leverton got the win, pitching 1 inning of no-hit ball, walking 1 and striking out none. Zach Stewart got the save going 2.2 innings, giving up 2 hits, 1 run, not earned, walking 1 and striking out 3.
At the plate, Hall Seefeld, Kreder, and Ashby each had 1 RBI, a collective effort for sure, sans Ashby's work.
Congrats should also go out to Coach Hays who earned his 800th victory.
Also from Tanner Rindels, the offensive hero of last night's game:
