Recap


Texas Tech 56, Iowa State 51: Josh Gray scored six key points down the stretch as the host Red Raiders held off the Cyclones to snap a four-game losing streak.

Texas Tech (9-8, 2-4 Big 12) had a 50-47 lead with 2:32 to play on Gray's jumper, but Will Clyburn cut the lead to one with a pair of free throws with 1:44 to go. Gray's free throws at the 1:26 mark pushed the lead back to three, but Clyburn again responded, scoring a layup with 1:13 to go to bring Iowa State (13-5, 3-2) back to within one.

Gray again came through, upping the lead to three with a jumper with 36 seconds to play. Clyburn missed a 3-point attempt and Jordan Tolbert clinched the game with a pair of free throws with 10 seconds left. Gray finished with 16 points, while Tolbert had 13 and eight rebounds.

Clyburn paced the Cyclones with 12 points and 10 rebounds, while Korie Lucious added 11 points, including three 3-pointers.

Neither team shot well from 3-point range, with Iowa State hitting 6-of-23 (26.1 percent) and Texas Tech 3-of-13 (23.1 percent).

GAME NOTEBOOK: Iowa State came into the contest ranking 12th in the country with 16.9 assists per game but managed only nine. … Texas Tech cracked the 50-point plateau for just the second time in five games. … It doesn't get much easier for Iowa State, which heads home to take on a Kansas State squad - also coming off a loss - Saturday. Texas Tech next travels to face in-state rival Texas on Saturday.
