regularseason title since 1985 by beating Southern Methodist tonight Its the first time a SWC team has moved into the Top Ten in basketball since 1991 when Arkansas finished second The last time a current member of the SWC reached the Top Ten was 1984 when Houston was fifth in the final poll Its a nice compliment to the university the program and our Texas Tech coach James Dickey said This means the same to us as getting to the Top 25 We have to approach it the right way and keep working to get he said Although the Texas Tech womens team won the NCAA championship in 1993 the highest ranking for the men before this sea son was 16th in 1985 and 1976 Tech has a chance to become the first team to go through the conference unbeaten since Houstons Phi Slama Jama team of 1983 that starred Akeem Olajuwon and Clyde Drexler The main barrier to doing that is Texas whom the Raiders barely beat in Lubbock Tech has to play the Longhoms in Austin on Saturday Weve been working hard to get to this forward Jason Sasser said Monday But if we dont take care of our business it wont mean much We always thought we had the talent and ability to put ourselves in this Raiders only loss was

South west High School and 68 Johnny Robertson Sierra Tilo Schmidt David Caddel and Damon Millet and Leon Sneed each scored in double figures to shock the Dragons 7167 Wilkins hopes he can get that same kind of balanced scoring from his 1995 lineup of Ian Owens Tony Bradford Wilkins Mark Phair and Aaron Moore Ray Chapa and Burden will bolster the attack off the bench With a weeks practice we
