The Red Raiders had the opportunity, on paper at least, to head into the turn toward the latter half of Big 12 play with at least a .500 record.

It’s only fitting that Zach Smith set a career high in scoring with 25 points on Superhero Day. He didn’t get there in his usual way, well what he calls usual and we see as super human, as the junior only had two dunks. Instead, Smith had one of the best offensive games of his career as the hard...

Chris Beard isn’t ready to make T-shirts at this point in this season. Being 3-4 at this point in Big 12 play and in the jam packed middle of the conference nearly halfway through isn’t enough for the Texas Tech coach. Sure, it is a better place than the Red Raiders have been in years past, but ...

The second-best shooting offense in the Big 12 didn’t score until nearly five minutes into the game. A Texas Tech squad who entered Saturday afternoon’s contest shooting 50 percent from the floor didn’t reach double digits on the scoreboard until a little more than eight minutes to play in the...
