Women's basketball, men's basketball and football links.

I finally have some preview posts coming up today and tomorrow for the Meineke Car Care Bowl. Just two this week, one today and one on Thursday, and then another post next week and then it will be game-time.

* Big 12 basketball rankings: Freshmen making big impacts early | Red Raiders


* Meet Coach Kingsbury On Wednesday Night - Texas Tech Red Raiders Official Athletic Site | This is one way to get folks to see some of the basketball game.

* Tech Talk Interview: Zach Thomas - Double T 104.3 | Really interesting to hear Zach talk about the football team and if anyone was ever doubting Kirby Hocutt as the AD, listen to Zach gush about Hocutt. Zach said that Hocutt would keep in touch with Zach and really reached out to him. Good stuff.

* Brewer consults Johnny Football to get the lowdown on Kingsbury | Red Raiders | QB Michael Brewer and QB Johnny Manziel were in the same area and are the same age. Here is Brewer:

"The main thing that sticks out in my mind when he was talking about him was how hard (Kingsbury) works," Brewer said. "He said he’s the first one here in the office every day. No matter if it’s a bye week or they’re playing Oklahoma or Texas, doesn’t matter. He’s the first one here every day and the last one to leave. He’s a players’ coach. The players are going to love him. We’re going to play with a lot of confidence, and he’s going to get us ready each week."
