Gilling buried a career-high six 3-pointers to spark an early outburst and Carson scored 16 points in the second half to ignite a late game-breaking run as Arizona State (10-2) matched its victory total from last season.

Jaye Crockett, making his first start of the season, had 11 points and eight rebounds and Jordan Tolbert and Josh Gray added 10 points apiece for Texas Tech (5-4), which tumbled to its third straight defeat.

The Red Raiders responded with a 12-2 run and got within 42-36 at the break on Crockett's three-point play.

Chris Colvin buried a pair of 3-pointers to extend the lead back to 11 before Carson snuffed out Tech's comeback hopes with a personal 10-0 run that gave Arizona State its biggest lead at 71-54 with 2:40 to play.
