Governor Abbott Congratulates Texas Tech Basketball After Big Win
For the first team in program history, the Red Raider Men's Basketball team beat the number one team in the country Tuesday night in a 70-53 win over the Louisville Cardinals.
Coach Chris Beard and his team were limping into the game with their star player injured and riding a three-game losing streak. But none of that mattered, as Texas Tech clearly looked like the best team on the floor, outplaying Louisville for a majority of the contest.
Texas Tech took a lead and kept it for the last 28 minutes of the game, leading the entire second half.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott noticed the effort and took to Twitter to give a shout out to the Red Raiders:
It might seem insignificant, but it's not every day you get a shout-out from the Governor of Texas.
