Red Raiders jump into Top 25

The Texas Tech men's basketball team checked in with a No. 22 ranking in both the Associated Press and USA Today/ESPN Coaches Top 25 polls released on Monday.

The Red Raiders (6-0) have started the season with a 6-0 record for the sixth time in program history and are ranked inside both polls for the first time since Dec. 28, 2009 when Chris Beard served as an associate head coach under Pat Knight.

This year's squad is the first to win its opening six games by doubles figures during a 6-0 start. The Red Raiders have won those six games by a 28-point per game margin. 

Texas Tech will make its debut at the Under Armour Reunion against Seton Hall on Thursday. Tipoff is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. CT and is nationally televised on FOX Sports 1.

Next up at home, the Red Raiders square off with undefeated Nevada, a team who also won 28 games and appeared in the 2017 NCAA Tournament on Tuesday, Dec. 5. Tip time is set for 7 p.m. CT from the United Supermarkets Arena.
