Texas Tech Hangs with #6 Kansas in the First Half of 14 Point Loss

The first half of Texas Tech’s game on Saturday against #6 Kansas appeared to be a case of deja vu. Another trip to Lubbock by the Jayhawks, another potential upset by the Red Raiders. However, on this go-around it wasn’t meant to be as Kansas went on to win 60-46.

After a tight first half, the Jayhawks led 27-25. However, a 14-3 run by the Jayhawks to open the second half put the game out of reach for the Red Raiders.

Texas Tech head coach Chris Walker said Saturday’s performance by the Red Raiders was more indicative of the team’s talent level. “We played on Tuesday night (in the loss to Baylor), and I promised everybody that that was not the Texas Tech team that we had been working with the last couple of months,” Walker said. “It was a hiccup. I think the guys came out and showed they could definitely compete at this level.”

Four of Kansas’ starters scored in double digits. Kevin Young led the Jayhawks with 14 and Travis Releford scored 12.

Texas Tech was led offensively by Jamal Williams (pictured). He scored 11 points with 2 assists and 2 steals.

With the loss, Texas Tech falls to (8-6, 1-2 Big 12). Their next game is Wednesday at Oklahoma.
