Your daily dose of all things Texas Tech athletics.

Leading Off

Belated Happy Mother’s Day. To all of the mom’s out there, I hope you had a terrific mother’s day. I tried to do as much as I could all weekend, from cooking all meals for my mom and dad to come over on Saturday and cleaning and all of those things around the house. Of course, my wife and I tend to do a lot of those things together so it works out well. Anyway, I hope you all have a great weekend and that long three-day Memorial Day weekend can’t get here soon enough.

Texas Tech Golf

Myrtle Beach Regional. It was a bit difficult to tell from this tweet, but the men’s team will start play in the Myrtle Beach Regional starting today, as the No. 3 seed at the TPC Myrtle Beach in South Carolina. Click on the link for how to follow along and a proper preview.

Texas Tech Softball

NCAA Tournament Berth. Congrats to the staff and the ladies for making the Baton Rouge Regional, where they’ll play Louisiana Tech to start off the regional, while LSU, the host team, will play Monmouth. Congrats again, a huge turnaround for this team from when Coach Gregory took this over. I’m soccer clapping above my head when I saw they made the Tournament.

Texas Tech Baseball

Schedule and Standings. A slight change of pace as Texas Tech will host TCU on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday for the final Big 12 series for Texas Tech, and then the Big 12 Championship in Oklahoma City starts on Wednesday, the 26th. Here are your standings:

Kansas State 8-13
Texas 6-14

For the final weekend, West Virginia is hosting George Washington out of conference, Texas Tech is hosting TCU, Texas is hosting Oklahoma, Oklahoma State is hosting Baylor, and Kansas is hosting Kansas State. Let’s get it.

Texas Tech Basketball

Mock. CBS Sports mocks the 2019 NBA Draft and they think that Jarrett Culver goes 7th overall to the Pelicans:

A jack of all trades, but master of none? That’s the top concern for Culver, that he doesn’t have a single elite skill, though he’s pretty good at pretty much everything. He’s skinny now, but he comes from a highly athletic family – one of his brothers is training for the 2020 Olympics in the high jump – and can certainly blossom with an NBA strength program. Culver is divisive; some I’ve spoken with put him as a top-five player in this draft, some believe he’ll turn into a talent that didn’t deserve to be selected in the lottery. I’m in the former group.

Texas Tech Football

Commitment #2. A rare Sunday night post, as Mansfield offensive lineman Caleb Rogers committed on Sunday to bring the 2020 class to two commits, which now includes Rogers and quarterback Donovan Smith.
