The Texas Tech Athletic Department has heard the public's wish and has granted it.

For the first time since the Red Raiders played TCU on Senior night, you can watch the Red Raiders in their home arena. The Texas Tech athletic department will open the United Spirit Arena so you and up to 15,000 of your closest friends can enjoy the Red Raider game together.

The Doors will open at 12:30 for the 1:20 tip time and the game will be shown in the arena. There will be limited concessions available and there will be free parking available in the North and West Lots. Enter the watch party through the Southwest and Northwest doors.

This is a fantastic idea that will create an incredible atmosphere to enjoy the Red Raiders fight through their first-ever appearance in the Elite 8 against the Villanova Wildcats.
