Texas Tech’s Jarrett Culver Receives Big 12 Newcomer of the Week Award
It seems like everything is firing at all cylinders right now for the Texas Tech men's basketball team. They are off to a 6-0 start, have easily defeated their opponents and are now ranked #22 in the nation. To top off what has been a great few weeks for the Red Raiders, freshman Jarrett Culver has been named the Big 12 Newcomer of the Week.
Culver averaged 19.5 points, 4 assists, 3.5 boards, and 2 steals a game this past week as the Red Raiders improved their record to 6-0 and notched their first AP Top 25 since the 2009 season. The Coronado High School graduate scored a career high 21 points against Wofford, then followed up with an 18-point, 7-assist performance against Savannah State on Saturday.
Up next for the Red Raiders is a neutral site match up against the 5-1 Seton Hall Pirates in the Under Armour Reunion game at Madison Square Garden. That game will tip-off this Thursday at 5:30 p.m. and be broadcast nationally by FS1.
