Troy vs Texas Tech

Texas Tech 90, Troy 85


LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) - Ty Nurse scored 29 points to lead Texas Tech over Troy 90-85 on Friday night, giving Billy Gillispie his first win after two years away from coaching.

Nurse hit 6 of 9 3-pointers and was 9 of 13 from the field.

The Trojans tied it at 56 with about 13 minutes remaining, but Tech used an 11-3 run to go up 67-59. Back-to-back 3-pointers by Nurse and Javarez Willis put the Red Raiders up 75-67 with about seven minutes left.

The Trojans pulled within 88-85 late, but a dunk by Robert Lewandowski with less than 20 seconds in the game sealed the win for Texas Tech (1-0).

Will Weathers scored 24 points to lead Troy (0-1).

Gillispie is two seasons removed from his firing at Kentucky. Red Raiders fans are hopeful he can turn around Texas Tech's program like he did at UTEP and Texas A&M.
