LUBBOCK, Texas – Greece, the Lady Raiders are coming!
Texas Tech women’s basketball will embark on a 10-day, two-city Greek tour this August that will feature games against European select/all-star teams.
Scheduled to leave from Lubbock on Aug. 6, the Lady Raiders will arrive in Athens on Aug. 7. In addition to spending time in Athens, the Lady Raiders will also visit the beautiful island of Crete.
