Valley News – College Basketball: No. 7 Texas Tech Dumps No. 23 OU

Lubbock, Texas — Keenan Evans scored 26 points and No. 7 Texas Tech beat 23rd-ranked Oklahoma 88-78 on Tuesday night in Division I scoring leader Trae Young’s first college game in the city where he was born.

Young, the son of former Texas Tech player Rayford Young, missed all nine 3-pointers while finishing with 19 points in front of a hostile Lubbock crowd that booed him just about every time he touched the ball in the Sooners’ fourth straight loss.

The Red Raiders (22-4, 10-3 Big 12) won their seventh straight game, including a six-game Big 12 run that’s the best in the conference this season. They tied the Sooners for the most Top 25 wins nationally this season at six.

Evans went 4 of 7 from 3-point range, including a fadeaway shot from the left corner that put Texas Tech ahead 79-71 with less than 2 minutes to go. He added his second dunk of the second half moments later between a pair of 3s that kept the Sooners (16-9, 6-7) alive into the final minute.
