The Texas Tech Red Raider baseball team struggled on the field at times, but absolutely excelled in the class room. The Red Raiders had 11 players named to the Big 12 All Academic Team, including seven on the first team.

According to Texas Tech's official website, Bo Altobelli, Scott LeJeune, Jordan Lopez, David Paiz, Reid Redman, Rusty Shellhorn, and Brennan Stewart were all named to Big 12 All Academic First Team. Shellhorn in fact was one of the three players in the Big 12 who posted a perfect 4.0.

The amount of players selected to the academic teams reflect well on head coach Dan Spencer. Since he has arrived four years, the Red Raiders have had 18 players named to the first team all Big 12 Academic Team.

Congrats to the Red Raiders who made the team.
