Coach's Insight: "I believe you win championships with juniors and seniors. Last year was a really good team and we knew we had a good team and didn’t finish as high as we wanted with fifth place. 

"I think this is a better team than last year overall. We lose some key people for this year. I think it is an opportunity for us this year to have that shot at doing something special."

-Texas Tech head coach Wes Kittley
