Texas Tech wins over Angelo State 88-69

When we talked to Texas Tech head coach Chris Beard he told the media the Red Raiders would take care of the ball and hit free throws. One of those things didn’t get accomplished tonight at the United Supermarkets Arena. The Red Raiders had troubles all night hitting shots from the line.

Keenan Evans had no problems scoring 21 including a perfect 6 -6 from the charity stripe. Niem Stevenson also made early contributions but was limited after 6:06 left in the 1st half.
