For the first team in program history, the Red Raider Men's Basketball team beat the number one team in the country Tuesday night in a 70-53 win over the Louisville Cardinals.

Coach Chris Beard and his team were limping into the game with their star player injured and riding a three-game losing streak. But none of that mattered, as Texas Tech clearly looked like the best team on the floor, outplaying Louisville for a majority of the contest.

Texas Tech took a lead and kept it for the last 28 minutes of the game, leading the entire second half.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott noticed the effort and took to Twitter to give a shout out to the Red Raiders:

It might seem insignificant, but it's not every day you get a shout-out from the Governor of Texas.
