John Roberson scored a season-high 28 points to lead Texas Tech past Oklahoma State 81-74 on Saturday. The win halted a two-game skid for the Red Raiders (15-7, 3-5 Big 12) and extended the Cowboys' losing streak to three.
The Red Raiders started the second half with a 13-4 run to go up 48-30 with about 15 minutes remaining. They had no turnovers in the first 10 minutes. The Cowboys used an 18-7 run to pull within 63-57, and cut the deficit to 65-61 on two free throws by Ray Penn with 3:38 left but could get no closer.
Kelton Page scored 22 points to lead Oklahoma State (16-7, 4-5). Texas Tech held James Anderson, the nation's seventh-leading scorer (22.8 average), to 10 points, matching his season low. He fouled out with 5:02 left. Anderson had 28 points in the Cowboys' win over the Red Raiders in January.
