Avalanche-Journal’s Don Williams reports that Lady Raider guard Sydney Goodson will transfer for her graduate year:

Texas Tech basketball guard Sydney Goodson, who started 47 games over the past two seasons, is leaving the program as a graduate transfer, a Tech athletics spokesman said Monday.

Goodson, a 5-foot-8 junior from Argyle Liberty Christian, averaged 7.9 points, 5.7 rebounds and 2.8 assists this season. The Lady Raiders finished 18-11, including 7-11 in the Big 12.

Goodson started 21 times in 24 games and missed the last five games with an injury.

Good luck to Sydney and thank you for all of your time dedicated to Texas Tech!

NBC Sports has the recent conference odds and for the football and Vegas does not like Texas Tech’s odds to win the Big 12.

Oklahoma 4/5
Texas 3/2
Oklahoma State 6/1
Iowa State 12/1
Baylor 16/1
West Virginia 16/1
Kansas State 25/1
TCU 28/1
Texas Tech 40/1
Kansas 100/1

The obvious take-away is that Oklahoma and Texas are the clear favorites. I also get Oklahoma State quite a bit with Chuba Hubbard returning as well as Spencer Sanders. I’m not sure how much ahead of West Virginia, Kansas State, and TCU are ahead of Texas Tech (a little odd that TCU is where they are at, but do they have a quarterback?).

I don’t know if you’ve ever seen this before, but when the light is just right at the end of February, the mist coming off of the water fall and the sun hitting the falls at just the right spot, the falls looks like a falling rainbow. It’s 5 minutes of a rainbow waterfall.

Bleacher Report’s Matt Miller has his NFL Draft big board and three Texas Tech players make an appearance, including Jordyn Brooks as the number #5 linebacker overall, Broderick Washington as the #20 defensive tackle, and Terrence Steele as the #23 offensive tackle. I think that Washington and Steele are going to be borderline to be drafted, but it’s good to see them listed.

In the latest episode of Texas Tech’s podcast, Typical Tech, head baseball coach Tim Tadlock and football’s defensive coordinator Keith Patterson are on the episode. Tadlock is always worth a listen, especially near the end of his portion where he talks about playing golf with the pins above the ground. Patterson mentions that the football staff are continuing to work on diagnosing how to improve so that’s good as well.
