The rise of the Texas Tech Red Raiders becoming a national college basketball program of relevance is largely thanks to Chris Beard doing magical things. Recruiting, coaching, all of that jazz.
In turn, it appears as though his players have plenty of faith in their coach.
After defeating the Texas Longhorns on Monday night, while discussing a potential Big 12 title, that sentiment was literally echoed by one of the team’s very best players.
“We never had this opportunity, so we just took it, listened to coach,” Jarrett Culver said of Chris Beard, who first mentioned the pursuit of a league title after a win at TCU last weekend. “We all trust coach. It’s a great opportunity that we’re in. We’re just going to take full advantage of it.”
With the victory over Texas on Monday, the Texas Tech Red Raiders improved to 25-5 on the season. They only have one regular season game left before the Big 12 Tournament.
