MANHATTAN, Kansas — No. 19 Texas Tech will get guard Terrence Shannon Jr. back Saturday against Kansas State, Shannon said Friday.
The junior guard tweeted, “Can’t keep a animal in a cage for too long… back with the gang tomorrow.”
Shannon last played December 14 against Arkansas State. He left that game with back spasms and has not played since.
He’s played just six games this season, but is Texas Tech’s leading scorer on a per-game basis at 14.3 points per game. Shannon was the team’s second-leading scorer last season at 12.9 points per contest.
The Red Raiders went 5-2 while Shannon was sidelined with his injury, including wins over No. 6 Kansas and No. 1 Baylor.
Texas Tech and Kansas State tip off at 11:00 a.m. Saturday on ESPN2.
