THIS IS EPISODE 317 OF THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
Matt Mooney is a former college basketball player who played at Air Force, South Dakota and, most recently, Texas Tech.
His one season with the Red Raiders saw him make second-team All-Big 12, the Big 12 All-Defensive team and the 2019 Final Four All-Tournament team in helping Texas Tech reach its first-ever national championship game, where it lost in overtime to Virginia. Mooney scored 22 points in Tech’s 61-51 win over Michigan State in the national semifinals, and he finished with 10 points in the loss to Virginia.
On this episode of the podcast, we talk with Mooney about the thrill of victory, responding to defeat with grace, NBA draft preparation, playing in the Final Four, coming to faith in Christ, and living that out on college basketball’s biggest stage.
When I'm on the floor I try to play for an audience of one ☝🏼Here's a small piece on my faith journey. Someday the ball will stop bouncing and at the end of my life, it won't be about my on court success or how much money I made, it'll be about Jesus. #Deuteronomy31:8 #Romans1:16 https://t.co/D1xvs9Px2A
