LUBBOCK, Texas -- Robert Lewandowski tied a career high with 20 points and led Texas Tech to a 70-58 win over Stephen F. Austin on Friday night.
It was the first time Lewandowski scored in double digits since Feb. 28, 2009, when he had 11 against Oklahoma.
Tech (2-1) struggled midway through the first half after going up 12-10. SFA (2-1) built as much as a 10-point lead after a 13-1 run while Tech's shooting was dormant for more than 6 minutes.
Senior guard John Roberson scored all seven of his first-half points to help bring Tech within one at 35-34 before halftime.
Roberson's performance carried over into the opening minutes of the second half as Tech jumped out to a 53-42 lead on a 19-5 run.
Roberson ended the game with 15 points, while fellow senior Mike Singletary added 11 points and nine rebounds -- 10 points in the second half alone.
Purdue coach Matt Painter says players haven't used the fifth-year graduate transfer rule for its true intent.
The dust has settled after players made their NBA draft decisions. Which college teams won? Which lost? Well, Villanova is pretty happy. USC, meanwhile, might not be as thrilled.
The 2017 recruiting class is short on point guards, with Trevon Duval leading only eight prospects from the ESPN 60 who are still available.
