Texas Tech basketball: Balanced effort leads Air Raiders to TBT win

Wednesday in Lubbock, the Air Raiders (a team comprised of former Texas Tech basketball players) took their first step toward winning $1 million by easily dispatching of Purple Hearts in the first round of The Basketball Tournament. In what was a rousing success for the Hub City, which produced a large crowd in the city’s first opportunity to be a host site for the now ten-year-old event, a balanced scoring effort from a host of all-time program greats helped pave the way to the second round.

With four players scoring in double digits, the Air Raiders never trailed in the game, and despite some moments of sloppy play were never threatened.
