Former red raider, Andre Emmett, found dead

The Texas Tech community is suffering a great loss. Former Red Raider basketball star, Andre Emmett, was shot and killed Monday morning in Dallas.

Emmett played in the NBA for the Memphis Grizzlies and the New Jersey Nets. He had also recently played in the Big 3. 

Emmett played under Coach Bobby Knight and was a star during his time at Texas Tech. He is arguably referred to as one of the best players in school history; scoring over 20 points per game in his junior and senior seasons.

Earlier this year, he was inducted into the Texas Tech Ring of Honor.
