The Red Raiders are coming off an action-packed week, playing 3 games from Tuesday through Saturday, capping off a stretch of four games in seven days. Opening with a win at Baylor, the Red Raider’s first since 2016, they followed it up by beating Oklahoma State in Lubbock before dropping the final contest at Kansas State. In each of the three games, there was a different leading scorer for Texas Tech.
One of those leading scorers was Adonis Arms, who also happened to lead the team in rebounds the same night while guiding the team to a victory in Waco. Arms finished with a 14/9/5 line, hitting a season-high in rebounds and blocks while tying his season-high assist mark. He is now shooting 37% from deep and 57% from the field this year and has come on strong to start conference play. His three highest minute totals on the season have all come in conference games. Arms are making a name for himself in Big 12 play, garnering attention from fans around the country as well as NBA scouts.
Aiding in the well-deserved recognition was his poster-worthy dunk on Baylor’s Matthew Mayer with under 90 seconds to go to put Texas Tech up four in the 65-62 victory.
Coming up, Texas Tech gets a rematch at home with Iowa State, a team that beat the Red Raiders just two weeks ago when Tech was severely shorthanded playing with just seven men. Staying in Lubbock for the duration of the week, they then host West Virginia on Saturday to end the week. With a 3-2 record to start league play, Texas Tech is in a great position to contend down the stretch, starting with winning two home games this week.
