Five Red Raiders named to Academic All-Big 12 Men's Basketball Team

Texas Tech men's basketball led the conference with five players selected to the 2014 Academic All-Big 12 Men's Basketball Team.

Three Red Raiders were named to the first team: seniors Jaye Crockett and Dejan Kravic along with sophomore Toddrick Gotcher.

Crockett was nominated with a 4.00 grade point average.

Sophomore Dusty Hannahs and freshman Aaron Ross were named to the second team.

First team members are those who have maintained a 3.20 or better GPA while the second team members have a 3.00 to 3.19 GPA.


Texas Tech had a nine-point lead with 13 minutes to play but couldn't hold it Tuesday night against Kansas State. "This is about as frustrating a game I've been around in a long time," Tech men's basketball coach Tubby Smith said.
