After a 26-6 record including wins against Kansas State, Kansas and at Iowa State, the Texas Tech Red Raiders have once again been selected to the NCAA tournament.

This selection marks the 17th time the Red Raiders have made the NCAA tournament and the third time they’ve been a 3-seed. In Tech’s region will be 1-seed Gonzaga, 2-Michigan, 4-seed Florida State, and other top teams including 12-seed Murray State with collegiate superstar Ja Morant who will be looking to make a bigger name for himself. Last year, Tech was able to advance to the Elite 8 from their 3-seed behind the heroics of Keenan Evans and Zhaire Smith. This year, they’ll hope Jarrett Culver and Davide Moretti can go even further.
