The Texas Tech Red Raiders fell to Texas A&M Saturday in College Station by a final score of 67-54, but the game was more lopsided than the final score indicated.

Texas Tech struggled offensively shooting 33% percent in the game, while allowing the Aggies to go for nearly 50%. Turnovers were a big part for Texas A&M offensively with the Aggies scoring 21 points off 23 Red Raider miscues.

Billy Kennedy’s squad stifled Tech defensively with the starting five Red Raiders combing for just 14 points, with the team scoring a season-low 17 first-half points.

Offensively Jaye Crockett led Tech off the bench as he had 19 points and 8 boards.

It was the fourth loss in a row for Billy Gillispie and the Red Raiders dropping them to 7-9 on the year and winless in the Big 12 at 0-4. The win also snapped a three-game skid for the Aggies and was their fifth straight over Texas Tech.

Texas Tech remains on the road for a game Tuesday Jan. 17th in Oklahoma against the Sooners before returning home to the United Spirit Arena for two against Iowa State and Kansas State.
