FORT WORTH, Texas (AP)
Dusty Hannahs scored 13 points, Dejan Kravic had 12 points and 10 rebounds and Texas Tech won consecutive Big 12 games for the first time in almost three years with a 60-49 victory against cold-shooting TCU on Saturday.
The Red Raiders blew a 14-point first-half lead and trailed at halftime before bouncing back to follow up their win over No. 12 Baylor, the biggest under first-year coach Tubby Smith.
Texas Tech (10-8, 2-3 Big 12) also snapped a 12-game road losing streak dating to its win at TCU last season.
Karviar Shepherd had a career-high 15 points and Amric Fields also scored 15 for TCU. The Horned Frogs (9-8, 0-5) shot 20 percent and remained the only Big 12 team without a conference win.
Trailing 24-23 at halftime, Texas Tech went back in front for good on Kravic's layup 15 seconds into the second half.
