On Monday, Integrity Sports Agency named Texas Tech’s Mark Adams as its Coach of the Week for his outstanding coaching performances throughout the week of February 14-20th.
Adams led Texas Tech to a 2-0 record on the week, with two ranked wins. His Red Raiders took down No. 7 Baylor at home to start off the week, and then later travelled to Austin and beat No. 20 Texas on the road.
Against Baylor, Adams’ Red Raiders had nine players score at least 2 points, with four of them scoring in double digits. They overcame a seven-point halftime deficit, and blew out the Bears in the second half to secure their third top-ten victory of the year.
Against the Longhorns, Texas Tech held a Texas squad that averages over 68 points per game to just 55 in their own building, and came out on top with the win. Adams looked to his bench for big performances in the win while star Terrence Shannon struggled, going 0 for 6 from the field.
With the two wins, Adams’ squad improved to 21-6 overall, as well as 10-4 in Big 12 action in his first year leading the program.
