There is no getting around the fact Texas Tech has lost three consecutive games by a combined 51 points. In fact, it is getting worse every game as the Red Raiders first lost to Oklahoma by eight then Oklahoma State by 18 before last week's 23-point setback to Kansas State despite being favored at home.

Smith Set to Sign with Tech

Tubby Smith and the Red Raiders will gain a valuable player in three-star forward Zach Smith, who plans on signing his Letter of Intent to play for Texas Tech around 8 a.m. Wednesday. Smith, a 6-foot-8 small forward from Plano East. is expected be a great asset to the team next season. Smith is known for his highlight-reel dunks, the energy he brings to his team and the fans.

Assuming the 6-foot-3 Evans stick with Tech, the Red Raiders will gain a skilled asset and some much needed depth at the point guard position next season. Evans said he looks forward to being apart of the program but needs some more time before signing.
