The Morning Stake: May 30th

Your daily dose of all things Texas Tech athletics.

Texas Tech Baseball

Texas Tech is a top five team in the nation, hosting a regional and there was no watch-party that I can tell or quotes from head coach Tim Tadlock. I have no idea what he thinks about Texas Tech hosting yet another regional as a national seed and that seems a bit odd to me. Maybe Tadlock is ticked at how the Big 12 Tournament ended or maybe he thinks that getting to the tournament isn’t that big of a deal because it’s expected. But we really don’t know what he thinks. Maybe Tadlock will be made available today. Still, it’s strange not to hear from Tadlock at all on Selection Sunday.

Texas Tech’s first opponent are the Delaware Blue Hen’s (34-21) and via the Delaware State News, they’re coming to Lubbock to win:

“This is not an icing on the cake type of deal, we are going out there to win,” Delaware head coach Jim Sherman said. “We are in a four-team, double-elimination tournament. Our No. 1 guy Ron Marinaccio is throwing really well and we believe in him. Right now, we are swinging the bats well. We are going out there to win and anything is possible. We think we have the right team.”

Via Scout’s Evan Daniels Italian point guard Davide Moretti is looking for a place to play basketball this coming season and will visit Indiana, Connecticut, Texas Tech and Utah:

Moretti, 19, averaged 14.8 points and five assists, while leading Italy to a 3rd place finish in the 2016 FIBA u18 European Championship.

Moretti, who also played in the FIBA u20 European Championship this past July, plays for Treviso in Legadue, averaging 12.7 points, 2.6 rebounds and 2.2 rebounds a game. He’s made 61 of 162 three-point attempts in 37 games.

Moretti appears to be a shooter and a scorer (but mainly a shooter):
