The Morning Stake

The Morning Stake: February 6th

Lots of spring sports underway. Women’s tennis loses to Georgia, while the men play Abilene Christian. Men’s golf is playing in Hawaii, plus more football links.

Men’s Basketball

Clergeot Leads Auburndale to District Title. Texas Tech signee, point guard Keon Clergeot, led Auburndale to a district championship and he scored 36 points, including 17 of 21 from the free throw line. Would love a point guard that can score like Clergeot.


Big Shoes to Fill. Not literally, but ESPN’s Jake Trotter writes that the biggest shoes to fill next year will those of Jakeem Grant:

The Red Raiders don’t have a player coming back or coming in who possesses the explosiveness Grant did. But with quarterback Patrick Mahomes returning, that doesn’t mean Tech won’t be lethal offensively again in 2016.

Tech figures to lean even more on rising juniors Ian Sadler and Cameron Batson, who have played key roles in the rotation over their first two years on campus. The two combined for 71 receptions, 923 receiving yards and four touchdowns last season. Walk-on Zach Austin gave the Red Raiders a boost from the inside as well last season, most notably a 110-yard receiving effort against Baylor.

ESPN JC50 receiver De’Quan Bowman, the No. 31 overall juco recruit, should help the Red Raiders right away, too.
