Forward: Jarrett Culver

At one forward spot, we have perhaps the best player in program history in terms of talent, Jarrett Culver. That's because he was outstanding in the Red Raiders' 2019 run to the National Championship Game.

In round one, Culver got off to a great start against Northern Kentucky. His 29 points set a record for a Red Raider in an NCAA Tournament game and he flirted with a triple-double with 8 rebounds and 7 assists.

Against Buffalo in round two, he followed that up with 16 points, 10 rebounds, and 5 assists. Then, in the Sweet 16, against Michigan, he scored 22 of Texas Tech's 63 points to go along with 4 rebounds and 4 assists.

Two nights later, he would help push his team past No. 1 seed Gonzaga. He had 19 points, 5 rebounds, and 2 assists in the wild upset in Anaheim, California.

Unfortunately, life was a little more difficult for the Lubbock native in the Final Four. He scored only 10 points agianst Michigan State but he did hit a late 3-pointer that proved to be the dagger in that game.

Then, against Virginia he did score 15 points but he was only 5-22 from the floor. Still, Culver's 2019 tournament run is one of the best in program history and because he was the driving force on Tech's best team ever, he belongs in this lineup.
