Red Raiders get first Big 12 win, beating OU

Billy Gillispie and company finally got their first win in conference play Saturday night beating the Sooners from OU 65-47. The win halts an 11 game winless streak in conference play.

Sophomore guard Bean Willis scored a game high 21 points to lead Tech to victory.  He did so on 8-12 shooting from the floor. Senior Robert Lewandowski added 16 points and 5 rebounds in the win as well.

It's been rough sledding here in Gillispie's first season coaching the Red Raiders, but the young Tech squad fought hard tonight to make sure they picked up a conference win. The win improves their overall record to 8-16 and 1-11 in Big 12 play. Up next for Tech is a home game on Valentine's Day against the Texas A&M Aggies.
