Texas Tech Red Raiders NCAA Tournament History & Scores

Texas Tech Red Raiders All-Time NCAA Tournament Record: 8-15

The Texas Tech Red Raiders, while having been coached by one of the all-time legends of college basketball, do not have a vast amount of NCAA Tournament success. Under the elder Knight, father of successor Pat Knight, the Red Raiders played in the NCAA Tournament four times and once in the NIT Tournament. Historically, Texas Tech has seen little success in the NCAA Tournament over the years with several multi-year lapses between NCAA Tournament appearances.
