Track & Field


Texas Tech Officially adds Millinghaus. It’s officially official as guard Shadell Millinghaus has signed with Texas Tech:

Millinghaus registered 16.9 points, 5.2 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.7 steals per game. He drained 47.5 percent of his field goals attempts and reached double figures in 26 of 30 games last season. Millinghaus captured NJCAA All-American Honorable Mention status and Panhandle Conference Player of the Year accolades. He amassed 20-plus points on 12 occasions with six of those performances coming over a seven-game span from Dec. 29-Jan. 20.

Millinghaus spent his freshman season at Southern Miss where he averaged 7.4 points and 2.4 rebounds per game over 18 appearances. He secured double figures seven times highlighted by a 25-point effort on 9-of-11 shooting at Louisiana Tech. He set a then school record for best field goal percentage in a Conference USA game and knocked down 46.2 percent of his three-point attempts on the season.


NCAA Projections. D1Baseball is projecting the field and has Texas Tech as the No. 7 national seed and just to catch you up, teams that earn national seeds automatically host a super regional if they advance past that first regional.


Top Quarterbacks in Texas. Via the DMN, they’re ranking all of the positions in the state of Texas and has Texas Tech with the best at the quarterback position:

Mahomes enters the 2016 season with expectations of another season filled with exciting highlights for Texas Tech. The junior quarterback will continue approaching several all-time program records in 2016, including passing touchdowns and yardage. Mahomes accounted for more of both last season than any in-state opposition while leading the Red Raiders to a 7-6 finish and spurned an offseason split between baseball and football in hopes of honing his skills at the position.

Offensive Efficiency. ESPN’s Brandon Chatmon looks at the offensive efficiency of each Big 12 team, the points per drive and Texas Tech came in 4th:

4. Texas Tech, 2.32: Last year’s 2.85 points per drive was the best during this span as Patrick Mahomes’ breakout season helped make the Red Raiders’ offense one of the nation’s best. The Red Raiders weren’t especially efficient during the previous two seasons (2.1 points per drive in 2013, 2.02 in 2014) but Mahomes’ emergence seems to have really sparked an improvement.

Miscellaneous. If this interests you at all, Texas A&M lost some commits (their QB and a WR) as a result of a coach going on a Twitter rant about loyalty . . .
