The Morning Stake

The Morning Stake | 2019.02.25

Your daily dose of all things Texas Tech athletics.

Leading Off

Huge Sports Weekend. Let’s see if we can get to all of this:

  • Men’s track and field wins the Big 12 in a landslide.
  • Women finish second in the Big 12, best finish ever.
  • Men’s golf wins the Desert Intercollegiate on the final hole.
  • Softball beats two more ranked opponents but finally loses a game to move to 13-1 on the year.
  • Baseball sweeps Kentucky with a 19-4 drubbing on Sunday (I’ll fully update this post during my lunch hour).
  • Men’s basketball beats Kansas by 29 on Saturday night to remain a game behind Kansas State for the Big 12 title.
  • Matt Wells gets a commitment from a freshman phenom. Yeah, a freshman.

Texas Tech Track and Field

Big 12 Champions. See the post here for more detail, but the men win the Big 12 scoring the most points ever for a men’s team and the women finish second.

Texas Tech Golf

Texas Tech Tennis

Texas Tech Softball

13-1. The softball team finally dropped a game, the Red Raiders finally lose to No. 5 Washington yesterday. This past weekend in California, the team went 3-2, but one of those losses was an exhibition game against Japan, so that doesn’t count for the overall record. They did beat No. 13 Arizona State on Thursday 8-0, lost to the Japan national team 0-9 on Friday, beat No. 17 Oregon 5-0 on Saturday, beat San Diego State 7-0 on Saturday, and lost to Washington 1-4 on Sunday. After two tournaments to start the season, these ladies will be in Lubbock for the next two weekends, with the Texas Tech Invitational and the Jeannine McHaney Memorial Classic.

Lady Raider Basketball

Texas Tech Baseball

Sweep Kentucky. You can catch up on most of the three-game sweep of Kentucky in the series thread. I didn’t have time to update the final game, but Keith has updated the first two (I did add the highlights and links to the recap and box score for the third game). Up next is a mid-week game against New Mexico State on Tuesday in Lubbock.

Texas Tech Basketball

Cinematic Recap.

Texas Tech Football

Taking Advantage of a Great Weekend. I think it was very good timing (I think it was intentional in fact) to take advantage of the best home crowd of the year and absolutely whipping Kansas on Saturday and being able to show these players coming in what they are capable of creating.

Freshman Commit. Are you ready for a 2020 commit? Me neither. Texas Tech secured the commitment of 2022 Lubbock Cooper linebacker Kobie McKinzie, who was a 6’3″/225 safety or linebacker hybrid last year for the Pirates as a freshman. He’ll be a sophomore starting next year.
