KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Tubby Smith enters his third season at the helm of the Texas Tech men’s basketball program with the hopes of finally turning things around.
His first year in Lubbock, Smith led the Red Raiders to a trio of wins over top 25 teams in a 14-18 season.
Last year, with one of the youngest rosters in the country, Texas Tech finished 13-19.
This season, Smith hopes to break through and finish in the upper half of the conference standings, despite being picked to finish last in the Preseason Big 12 poll.
