It's the best conference in the country - no questions asked.
And the Lady Raiders own at least half the teams in it.
Their 61-53 victory over Oklahoma State Wednesday not only puts
the Lady Raiders over the 20-win plateau for the regular season, not only gives
them 11 wins in league play, but also sent the team to the closet for the fifth
time this season.
And for those of you who keep your broom in the closet, you know
what I'm talking about. Yes, Tech has now swept 5 teams in the Big 12.
That's half the teams in a conference
even the most ignorant of voters (which apparently there are many since Tech is
unranked) would agree is the best the women's game has to offer.
And this thought also crossed my mind after Wednesday's game:
If you take away the two Baylor losses (because they are beating
everybody since we turned the calendar to 2013, and beating them badly), Tech
has 5 losses overall and 3 conference losses - that's it.
And in this conference, that's really, really good.
Their final regular season home game comes Monday night against
No chance for a sweep there as the Lady Raiders were knocked off
in Norman in January. But they can make it a 2-0 season against Kansas State and that one comes Saturday afternoon.
Time to start packing for that trip now as we leave today.
So I'll be sure and pack a small broom before we go...
