Tis the season of giving and that is exactly what the Red Raider basketball team is doing these days. Instead of just sitting around, the Tech basketball is out in the community giving of their time and helping others.

The whole effort is called Billy Gillispie's Red Raider 12 Day of Christmas. They started this on Dec.10th and have a different location to visit through Dec. 21.

The rest of their schedule looks like this:

Wednesday, Dec.14th, Fire Station No.1 at 8pm

Thursday, Dec. 15th, Meals on Wheels at 11;30AM

Friday, Dec. 16th, Margaret Talkington Learning Center at 9am

Saturday, Dec. 17th, Ronald McDonald House at 3pm

Sunday, Dec. 18th, Hand out Toys, 1pm

Monday, Dec. 19th, Salvation Army(Ring Bells) at TBA

Tuesday, Dec. 20th, South Plains Food Bank at 8:30am

Wednesday, Dec. 21st, Texas Tech Police at 9am

This is really a cool thing and coach Gillispie and his team should be congratulated.

Oh, by the way, Tech will play Grambling State at 7pm this Sunday, Dec. 18th at 7pm in the United Spirit Arena. Get a ticket and be there.
