Red Raider basketball update

Monday afternoon, Texas Tech coach Tubby Smith mentioned the status of some of his players. 

Smith said sophomore forward Justin Gray didn't practice that day because he had some swelling in his groin.

"In practice yesterday I probably pulled it a little bit," Gray said. "We were doing drills and working on defense. I'm doing a lot better now. I've been icing and heating it all day. I'm just trying to get that swelling down, and I'll be ready for tomorrow."

Smith also added that sophomore forward Norense Odiase is "a little beat up."

Williamson eligible as Texas Tech prepares to host Little Rock

Freshman forward C.J. Williamson missed the last two games for the Red Raiders due to some academic issues.

Monday afternoon, Texas Tech coach Tubby Smith announced Williamson will be available for Tuesday afternoon's contest against Little Rock.

"I did want to mention that we’re really pleased and excited that we have C.J. Williamson back," Smith said. "He got everything and did everything he had to do to get himself reinstated and eligible. I’m really relieved and pleased for that."
