Texas Tech uses exhibition loss to prepare for regular season opener
Down by eight with less than three minutes remaining in regulation, Texas Tech men’s basketball went on a 10-2 run to force overtime against Texas A&M-Commerce. However, the Lions made the most of the extra five minutes and won 72-69.
The only field goal for the Red Raiders in overtime came from a goal-tending call.
“It was tough on us although I thought our kids showed a lot of heart and toughness to get back in the game after being down nine,” Texas Tech coach Tubby Smith said.
