Expressive Texas Tech coach Tubby Smith — seen here directing the Red Raiders in a 68-60 victory at Oklahoma on Feb. 12, 2014 in Norman, Okla. — will lead the up-and-coming Raiders against Kansas University tonight in Lubbock, Texas.
Picked to finish last in the Big 12 in a preseason vote of league coaches, Tubby Smith’s third Texas Tech basketball team has to be considered the surprise squad in the conference.
One victory in Texas Tech’s final six regular-season basketball games would give the Red Raiders six wins in Big 12 conference play for the first time in six seasons. By Gary Bedore
