This week wasn't the greatest in TTU sports, but it did have some encouraging moments. Men's basketball played two close games against some of the toughest teams in the country. Honestly sometimes I think Twitter is more entertaining during losses than it is during wins. With no further ado I present the best tweets from this week.
So are we gonna keep saying that everyone who plays Texas Tech is playing bad or accept that Texas Tech is pretty good at basketball— Hunter Cooke (@HunterCookeVTM) January 10, 2016
Our fearless leader brought up a great point the other day. Tech's defense has been outstanding this year. Surely soon the world will have to acknowledge that it's just too coincidental for all of these good teams to slump when playing the Red Raiders and that we are actually an excellent team.
NORENSE WITH THE EQUALIZER!!! Jayhawks call a timeout after a 9-0 Texas Tech run.— Viva The Matadors (@vivathematador) January 10, 2016
Odiase hit a late game jump shot from just inside the arc and I channeled my inner soccer announcer for this tweet. I apologize if you don't like soccer, you probably didn't understand the reference. Go watch some soccer so you won't miss it next time.
Dave, I will fite u https://t.co/aKNrcAslzU— Viva The Matadors (@vivathematador) January 10, 2016
Apparently somebody took what Dave said out of context. Dave did not badmouth our school on national television. I apologize Dave, have a nice day.
That's game. Tech hung around all game with the best in the nation. Your final score 69-59. Missed free throws ultimately sank the team.— Viva The Matadors (@vivathematador) January 10, 2016
Tech did hang around with the best team in the country but I would have loved to see how different the game could've been if Tech had hit their free throws.
This has got to be the worst 25 seconds in college basketball history. pic.twitter.com/0IYPJTRJSW— Jackson Reynolds (@LeFreak97) January 10, 2016
Momma we made it onto a famous tweet. Just the kind of fame I want.
After averaging 21.5 pts, @LadyRaiderWBB Japreece Dean was chosen #Big12WBB Freshman of the Week! pic.twitter.com/fu0rFSp3FK— Big 12 Conference (@Big12Conference) January 4, 2016
And we end this week with a shout out to Lady Raider Japreece Dean for her conference Freshman of the Week honors. Congratulations Japreece, and wreck 'em!
