Texas Tech ended up scoring 15 unanswered and won 15-11 and then won the second game 13-3 (run ruled).

Softball opens in the Big 12 Tournament against Texas today in Oklahoma City.

This is interesting and fun with numbers and football. Here’s the graphic for Texas Tech if that’s what you want.

Red Raiders Sports’ Ben Golan reports on the new commitment of Jacob Ponton (6’7″/265) from the Dripping Springs offensive lineman. Ponton is not rated and only had offers from Texas State and Tulsa. Here’s Ponton on the commitment:

“I just love the staff out there, love the energy. Love coach (Joey) McGuire, he came up to me right when I got there (on my visit) and introduced himself. He’s a real down-to-earth guy, just love the whole program.

Coach McGuire, we talked on my way out after watching practice. He let me know I had the offer. I was really excited and honored, it’s been one of my top schools since I was young.

I love coach (Stephen) Hamby, he’s real funny. Lots of energy. He’ll get on you when he needs to but he’ll let you know when you’re doing something right, too.”
