Izundu To Visit Texas Tech. According to Wreck’Em 24/7’s DAnile Paulling, power forward Ebuka Izundu (6-10/210) is set to visit Texas Tech on May 18th and will decide between a handful of schools on May 21st. Texas Tech is also set to host Shawntrez Davis (6-8/200) this weekend. I’d love to sign them both because both are power forward types who would be significant upgrades at that spot.
Speaking of Men’s Basketball. ESPN’s Dana O’Neil takes a look back and a look forward of the men’s team. I think the article is okay, but the unnecessary swipes isn’t needed. We get it. Texas Tech basketball hasn’t been good, but it would have been nice to write about how freshmen played a ton this past year and endured a ton of growing pains, plus, maybe having one of the better players be injured for the most part of the year, with Justin Gray.
Sordet Named All-Big 12. Congrats to Clement Sordet who has been named All-Big 12 for the year! Congrats!
Tennis to Start NCAA Regionals. Here we go. The women are hosting the first round of the NCAA Womens’ Tennis Championship and will take on New Mexico State at 5:00 pm tonight at the McLeod Tennis Center.
The men are headed to Los Angeles to take on UC-Santa Barbara starting at 12:00 pm today.
Floyd Named Capital One Academic All-District. Congrats to Tyler Floyd who was named to the Capital One Academic All-District-7 First Team and was one of only 10 NCAA-Division I baseball student athlete to have a cumulative 4.0 GPA.
Women’s Golf 11th at NCAA Regional. The women’s golf team sits at 11th overall and 5 shots back from the sixth spot after the first round of the NCAA San Antonio Regional on Thursday in San Antonio.
Lady Raiders Sign Another Player. Via a Bahaman newspaper, the Tribune 242, Texas Tech has signed another player, Leashja Grant, a 6-2 post player who played at Trinity Valley C.C. last year and averaged a double-double last year, averaging 12.1 points and 12.9 rebounds a game last year.
