Red Raiders credit trip to Martin County for part of their success

Editor”s Note: The Texas Tech Red Raiders came as close as the overtime loss Monday night in the national finals, knocking off one major program after another as they made history in college basketball. What many did not know is that Tech got iot all started right here in Martin County when Chris Beard, who would become the nation’s Coach of the Year, loaded up a band of diverse athletes and brought them south for a weekend at Circle Six.

MARTIN COUNTY - They drove south from Lubbock for nearly two hours, zipping past an occasional small town and miles of sun-browned countryside.

Only when they were as far removed from civilization as possible did their bus turn off Highway 137 and pull up to their destination.
