It's the first day of school back for my wife and kiddo, so I'm trying to rush through the morning links so I can start working on the player profile for Texas Tech's newest commit in DeSoto ATH Tristan Wallace. I also have the preview for tonight's game against West Virginia (it's an early tip tonight, 6:00 pm) coming up shortly.
