Texas Tech Basketball

Yesterday, Texas Tech basketball was picked to finish 7th in the preseason coaches Big 12 poll.

Team (1st Place Votes) Points
1. Kansas (9)* 81
2. Kansas State 72
3. West Virginia 61
T4. TCU 54
Texas 54
6. Iowa State 41
7. Texas Tech 36
8. Oklahoma 21
9. Baylor 20
10. Oklahoma State 10

I honestly don’t know much about most of the other teams, except that I know that Kansas is absolutely loaded. Loaded. The 2019 Kansas State team is essentially the 2018 Texas Tech team, they return a ton of talented seniors who have been with the program for four years and as we all know, talented seniors are key to success (and they do have talented seniors). West Virginia is always tough and returns Sagaba Konate and Lamont West, who are both expected to get drafted. I think that TCU, Texas, Texas Tech, and Iowa State are all pretty similar, but the coaches probably don’t know what to think about some of Texas Tech’s transfers, Matt Mooney, Tariq Owens, and Deshawn Corprew. As an aside, I don’t think that Baylor will be 9th worst team in the Big 12.

I don’t even know who this is (I know I can looks this up on the internets, but it’s funny that I’m just getting old).

Texas Tech goes to the throwbacks for the second striaght week, which should just be the team’s regular look.
