Texas-San Antonio vs Texas Tech

Texas Tech rolls past UTSA 94-64


  •  

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) Jaye Crockett scored 17 points and pulled down eight rebounds to lead Texas Tech to a 94-64 victory against Texas-San Antonio Friday night.

Jordan Tolbert remained a consistent threat for Texas Tech (6-2) as he added 12 points and six rebounds. Randy Onwuasor scored 15 points and Aaron Ross added 13.

Crockett, Tolbert, Ross and Onwuasor gave UTSA fits throughout the game, as Texas Tech had a 54 shooting percentage to UTSA's 37.7.

Phillip Jones led UTSA (1-6) with 12 points and nine rebounds. Kaj-Bjorn Sherman scored 11 points and Jordan Sims added 11 for the Roadrunners.

UTSA grabbed a lead on the opening possession, but fell behind quickly as Texas Tech broke an early 7-7 tie with a 30-13 run to close the first half. The Red Raiders led by as much as 35 points midway through the second half.

Ross was out on the court early because Texas Tech coach Tubby Smith was seeking a spark from the bench to get the team going. Onwuasor and Toddrick Gotcher supplied the jump start as well, but made their impact initially felt on the defensive side of the ball.

Once Texas Tech established its pressure on defense, UTSA had trouble doing much of anything out on the court as they shot 18.2 percent from beyond the arc.

The stagnant UTSA offense allowed Texas Tech the opportunity to build a lead. A lead which began to quickly grow with 7:36 left in the first half as Tolbert knocked down two free throws.

Texas Tech was picking and choosing how it wanted to score with a couple free throws here, a layup there and 3-pointer for good measure. Meanwhile, the only scoring chances opening up for UTSA were trips to the free throw line. The last field goal UTSA recorded in the first half was a layup from Jones at the 8:41 mark.

Fortunes only continued to become worse in the second half. Sims attempted to combat the wave of points scored by Texas Tech with all of his 10 points coming in the early part of the second half. However, the game was virtually over with 11:24 left in the second half when a Kader Tapsoba dunk increased the score to 62-32.

With the game out of hand, Smith rotated the bench as 14 Red Raiders in uniform saw action.
