Texas A&M gets 1st Big 12 win, 67-54 over Tech
TEXAS A&M 67, TEXAS TECH 54

COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) -- Khris Middleton, Elston Turner and
Naji Hibbert scored 12 points each and Texas A&M took advantage
of a poor-shooting Texas Tech team to get its first Big 12
Conference win, 67-54, on Saturday.



Texas A&M (10-6, 1-3) never trailed, and the Red Raiders
couldn't overcome a tough start where they didn't make a field
goal until more than 10 minutes into the game.



The Aggies led by 17 at halftime and used a 10-2 run punctuated
by a dunk by David Loubeau to extend the lead to 44-19 with 16
minutes remaining.



The win snapped a three-game skid for the Aggies and was their
fifth straight over Texas Tech (7-9, 0-4).



Jaye Crockett had 19 points and eight rebounds to lead the Red
Raiders, the only team in the Big 12 without a conference win.



Texas Tech went on a 12-5 run late in the game with most of
A&M's starters on the bench to cut the lead to 14. But the
Aggies broke Tech's full court press on the next play, and Ray
Turner finished with an alley-oop dunk to stretch the lead to
66-50 with less than 30 seconds remaining.



Dash Harris added 11 points and seven assists for the Aggies.
Turner finished with 10 points.



Clark Lammert was the only other Red Raider in double-digits
with 10 points. Luke Adams and DeShon Minnis chipped in seven
points apiece.



It wasn't the return former A&M and first-year Texas Tech coach
Billy Gillispie was hoping for in his first visit to College
Station as an opposing coach. Gillispie went 70-26 in three
seasons at A&M before leaving to become Kentucky's coach in
2007. He guided the Aggies to the NIT in his first season and
the NCAA tournament the next two years, including the round of
16 in 2007.



The Red Raiders were playing without freshman Terran Petteway,
who Gillispie suspended for a game for elbowing a Kansas player
on Wednesday. Petteway was ejected after the incident in the
first half of Tech's 81-46 loss to the 10th-ranked Jayhawks, and
Gillispie announced the suspension the next day.



Petteway traveled to College Station for the game, but sat in
the stands.



Texas Tech shot 33 percent on Saturday after shooting 31 percent
against Kansas. Tech had a season-high 23 turnovers that A&M
converted into 21 points.



The teams combined to shoot 59 free throws, with Tech making 22
and A&M 18.



The Red Raiders missed eight shots and had six turnovers before
making their first basket with less than 10 minutes left in the
first half. By then, they were down 16-5.



Crockett had a 3-point play soon afterward, but A&M used a 9-2
run, highlighted by a 3-pointer by Hibbert, to push the lead to
25-10 about six minutes before halftime.



The Aggies led 34-17 at halftime. Texas Tech shot just 21
percent before the break.
