Texas Tech Red Raider Basketball lost for the ninth straight game last night falling to the No. 13 Kansas State Wildcats 75-55.

The Wildcats did not take control until the second half, when reserve Nino Williams jump-started the Kansas State offense with 11 straight points.

Tech was led by Dusty Hannahs with 14 points and Jaye Crockett adding 13 points.

Josh Gray only scored 2 points in the game. The Red Raiders are now 9-17 on the season and 2-13 in the Conference.

Thomas Gipson scored 20 points, Angel Rodriguez added 16 giving the Wildcats 12 conference wins for the first time in 40 years.

The 12 league wins are the most ever for a first-year coach at Kansas State (23-5, 12-3 Big 12) and more importantly for Bruce Weber and his team is that win keeps the Wildcats tied with No. 6 Kansas for first place in the Big 12.
