The Texas Tech Men’s Basketball Team Sets Non-Conference Schedule
The Red Raiders will have nine non-conference home games plus a tenth home game with a throwback theme that will be played in the Lubbock Municipal Coliseum, where the games were played before the United Supermarkets arena was used. The throwback game will be on December 16th against former Southwest Conference rival Rice.
Texas Tech will also play Nevada on December 5th, who amassed 28 victories and a NCAA Tournament appearance coupled with Mountain West regular season and tournament titles last season.
The Red Raiders also travel to South Carolina (Jan. 27) as part of the Big 12/SEC Challenge.
Big 12 action begins on Friday, December 29th.
Texas Tech ranked 26th in the nation for the largest average attendance increase between the 2015-16 and 2016-17 seasons. More season tickets have already been sold for 2017-18 than all of last season.
