The college basketball season has come and gone and so has Texas Tech’s, with a heart-shattering loss in the championship game that shouldn’t take anything away from the magical and unprobable season they had.

Just three short years ago Tech was the joke of the big 12, Tubby Smith was their coach, and they had never been to the Elite Eight. Then came Lubbock’s lord and savior Chris Beard. In just his second year in 2018 he lead the Red Raiders to a school record elite eight run in the NCAA tournament. After an off season of successful recruiting The Raiders entered 2019 towards the top of the Big 12. They ended up winning the Big 12 and went into the tournament as a three seed. And the rest was history.

Texas Tech found themselves in the Final Four with a semifinal match up against the Spartans of Michigan State. Tech won the thriller of a basketball game and progressed to the Championship game. No one could believe Texas Tech doesn’t play in national championship games, in any sport. Virginia ended up outlasting the Red Raiders in the big game winning the championship but Techs success was not lost.

They went front literally worst to first in just three years under Chris Beard in one of the best conferences in college basketball. Went form the joke of the Big 12 to a Final Four, in three years. This one of the best turnarounds and coaching jobs we have seen in all of sports. And Beard isn’t going anywhere, they are going to be really good for a really long time. This is just the beginning.
