Your daily dose of all things Texas Tech athletics.

Leading Off

Ultramarathon Update. To catch everyone up, on New Year’s Day I announced that I’d be running an ultramarathon in March, which is right around the corner. I injured myself, strained my IT band, maybe a month ago, and feel like I’ve just about fully rehabbed from that, which entailed not running for an entire week, just stretching and strengthening my way back. I had to eventually build up my endurance again and I’ve finally built up to where I ran 20 miles on Saturday in the misty cold (I think it was around 38 or so for the entire run, which is fine because the wind wasn’t blowing that much). This next weekend, I’ll taper down a bit, run anywhere in-between 12 to 15 miles and then the race is on Saturday, March 2nd at Colorado Bend State Park. This should be fun in a couple of weeks and I’ll post photos from the run on Twitter if anyone is interested.

10-0. The ladies are 10-0 after beating 4 teams at the Plainsman Invitational this weekend. They beat Drake 1-0, UAB 7-2, Furman 5-0, #21 Auburn 5-4, and beat Drake 4-0 because they could. The 1-0 win over Drake was a no-hitter thrown by Erin Edmoundson, but she also threw a 2-hitter to beat Drake on Sunday. The ladies will travel to California this weekend to participate in the Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic and face Arizona State, Long Beach State, Team Japan, Oregon, San Diego State, and Washington.

Lady Raider Basketball

Give Them A Win. On the road no less. Go get’em.

Texas Tech Baseball

2-1. After dropping the first game, Texas Tech has rallied for their past two wins, 12-11 on Saturday and 6-4 on Sunday with the fourth game of the series coming up today at 1:00 p.m. on TexasTech.TV. I think the temperature in Lubbock is supposed to be a high of 38 and a low of 25 or something like that. Should be a fun day at the ballpark. You can get caught up in the series thread with highlights, recaps from Keith, and so much more. All in one spot. Oh, and it was announced that Hunter Dobbins, a freshman from Bryan will get the start today (it was previously unannounced).

Texas Tech Basketball

Cinematic Recap. Just to catch you up if you’ve been away for the weekend, Norense Odiase had two cousins die in a car wreck over the weekend and Saturday’s win over Baylor was an emotional game for the team. Also wanted to add that there is no mid-week game this week, Kansas is on Saturday.

Texas Tech Football

AAF. I don’t know if any of you have gotten into the AAF, but if you have then you probably already know that each team has a pool of colleges from which they can pull players, so for example, the Arizona Hotshots can pick from the Pac-12 for the most part, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas A&M, and Texas Tech. The San Antonio Commanders can choose from TCU, Houston, Baylor, Cincinnati, both Oklahoma programs, etc. Justin Stockton had a 54-yard draw for a touchdown this past weekend.

Filani. We talked about this last week, but Joel Filani is returning to Lubbock to coach receivers for Texas Tech and I’m posting this for no reason other than I thought it was a cute picture.
