Weekend Update. Not the best result, but Texas Tech did take game three from Kentucky on Sunday. LaBarre updated the series thread with the results and recaps. Oh, and other than reading what LaBarre wrote, I don’t have a clue what happened and maybe that’s good. Texas Tech has Louisville up next in a two-game series and they’re pretty good too. Should be fun. (I’m also guessing that Tadlock doesn’t give a flip about playing tough teams.)

#3 East Seed. As Dan posted yesterday, Texas Tech is a #3 seed in the East Region in Dallas and play on Thursday at 6:27 at The American Airlines Center.

So I feel like all of us, we’ve grown from that. We learned from a lot of our mistakes in that game. We know what it takes in order to move on now. We can relate that back to the young guys and tell how their mindset needs to be and how they need to prepare for these games.

“It’s one game, you lose and you’re done. Survive and advance.”
