Southeastern Louisiana vs Texas Tech

Texas Tech 62, SE Louisiana 54


LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) - Javarez Willis scored 15 points and Texas Tech used a stifling man-to-man defense to beat Southeastern Louisiana 62-54 on Friday night.

The Red Raiders (7-5) started the second half on a 10-2 run to bring a four-point halftime lead to double digits in the first five minutes, putting the Lions (5-6) in too big of a hole to overcome.

The Lions finished 15-for 53 from the floor, and 19-for-37 from the free-throw line.

Texas Tech's man-to-man defense collapsed around the interior, forcing the Lions to take contested shots inside and eventually forcing poor shot selection from the perimeter.

Jordan Tolbert scored 11 points for Texas Tech, and Jaye Crockett and Ty Nurse each chipped in 10.

Daron Populist led Southeastern Louisiana with 10 points. The Lions were without leading scorer Brandon Fortenberry, who is sidelined with a foot injury, for the fourth consecutive game.
