LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

After going 18-14 in Chris Beard's first season as head coach, the Red Raider basketball team is working through fall camp expecting big things.

Coach Beard likes what he sees.

"We feel good about our team. We like the mix. We return a lot of experienced players as well as Tommy and Brandone, who sat out last year. Then our new guys, two junior college transfers and seven freshmen."

The 2017-2018 schedule includes facing Boston College in a tournament in Connecticut, playing Seton Hall at Madison Square Garden in New York City and a throwback to the Southwest Conference as the Red Raiders play Rice at the Lubbock Municipal Coliseum on December 16th. Fans are excited for the upcoming season.

"Our season tickets are at an all-time high. I think we're almost ready to break 5000. That was a goal. I'm so appreciative of all the people that have renewed season tickets."
