What goes around comes around. A month after his Texas Tech Red Raiders bullied East Central in a 167-115 victory, Pat Knight got to feel what it's like to be on the other end.
Stanford rolled Texas Tech, 111-66, Sunday night at Maples Pavilion, the second-worst defeat in team history, surpassed only by a 58-point rout at Kansas last March.
Knight is taking the blame for this one.
"I thought we really laid down. We didn't compete at all. … We didn’t push the ball up, we didn't guard anybody. We just didn’t show up. That’s my fault.
"Kids don’t play bad on purpose. It's my job, I have to figure out why. The game was over in the first five minutes. Stanford’s too good of a team … when you get a start like that from a team in one of these power conferences, you can’t come back like that.
"It's my fault. I have to figure out why we get off to starts like that, why we have problems on the road, why we just don’t want to guard anybody. I don’t blame the kids, per se, because it's not like they came out here and said, 'We’re just going to play bad.' It's up to me to figure things out."
