One More Sleep. Just one more sleep before Saturday night. Can’t wait. Oh, and there was so much basketball content that I felt like it needed its own post.

Texas Tech Track and Field

Texas Tech Tennis

Texas Tech Softball

Podcasting with Heartland College Sports. I was on with Pete Mundo of Heartland College Sports to discuss Texas Tech basketball and all of those sorts of things so check it out.

Kansas vs. Texas Tech. The Red Raiders open Big 12 play in Lubbock (they’ve had two Big 12 series on the road) starting today, first pitch is at 2:00, moved up from its usual slot because of expected rain this evening. The series thread will go up at noon.

Texas Tech Football

Midland Scrimmage. The Texas Tech football team will scrimmage tonight at 7:00 p.m. (not sure of that pending weather) at Grande Communications Stadium in Midland, presented by Double Eagle. Admission is free.

Running Backs Making Waves. A-J Media’s Don Williams writes about running backs Ta’Zhawn Henry and SaRodorick Thompson are making waves thus far, Williams noted that Henry has put on 15 pounds and is up to 180, and head coach Matt Wells said that they can be complete backs:

“They can be complete backs for us,” Wells said. “They catch the ball out of the backfield. I think they can run between the tackles at a high rate.

“Both have enough speed and quickness to kind of be perimeter guys. They don’t shy away from contact as far as running the ball hard or for the protection part of it.”

Mic’d Up with Mark Tommerdahl.
