The Texas Tech Red Raiders are rolling into March. Texas Tech is on a five-game winning streak, including home upsets of Iowa State and Oklahoma. The Red Raiders beat TCU in their last contest on February 23rd. Head Coach Tubby Smith is doing a masterful job on the bench in Lubbock. The veteran who won a national title at Kentucky is still one of the best in the coaching business. Smith began his head coaching career in Tulsa and has had success everywhere he has been appointed. Fans of the Red Raider basketball program are excited about the month of March. Smith is still having fun after 22 years coaching College kids. He may be doing his best job ever this season and has the program on the brink of getting into the Tournament. Texas Tech has not been to the annual March Madness event since 2007.
