Texas Tech issues apology for fan conduct during home game against Oklahoma

During Texas Tech and Oklahoma’s bout in Lubbock, good-natured ribbing from fans turned edgy very quickly. Fans began shouting “F— you, Trae Young” in unison, according to multiple reports.

The actions were derided by Seth Greenberg of ESPN and the analyst called for Texas Tech to apologize. Texas Tech issued an apology on their official Athletics Twitter account.

“The energy at last night’s [Texas Tech Men’s Basketball] game was electric and helped our 7th-ranked Red Raiders remain unbeaten at home. A select number of our vocal fans did not uphold the behavior or language we expect from them. We ask all Red Raiders to strive for honor ever more,” said the tweeted statement.

Trae Young’s father played for the Red Raiders, and Young himself was born in Lubbock. Texas Tech remains at first place in Big 12 Conference standings with a 22-4, 10-3 conference record. The Red Raiders will travel to Baylor to take on the Bears next Saturday.
