Saturday was a rough day for Texas Tech basketball - men's and women's. The women had a hard fought battle - bringing the score to a 2-point deficit with less than 5-minutes remaining in the game, but OSU was just too much. The men were just plain old sloppy - I don't remember watching a college level team make so many careless passes. Unfortunately, because of deadline, we weren't able to capture coach Knight throwing a tantrum and getting ejected - that would have made for some interesting art.
