LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The Texas Tech men's basketball team takes on Angelo State in the first of two exhibition games Wednesday at the United Supermarkets Arena.
Evans and Smith are the third set of Texas Tech teammates to garner All-Big 12 Preseason awards. The duo joins Jarrius Jackson and Martin Zeno in 2005-06 along with John Roberson and Mike Singletary in 2010-11. Smith also is one of 20 players nationally to be recognized for the Karl Malone Award.
"The big thing this time of year is just to continue to improve," Beard said. "We thought we got better last Saturday against Mississippi State during that experience. We have two practices between now and then, we want to get better again tomorrow against Angelo State. They are a team we have a lot of respect for. They've got really good players and a really good coach. When we scheduled this game, we did it on purpose. We really wanted to challenge ourselves."
