    LUBBOCK, Texas -- Phillip McDonald hit two big 3-pointers and scored 12 points to help New Mexico hold on to beat Texas Tech 61-60 on Wednesday night.

    New Mexico (11-2) trailed 33-27 at halftime, but outscored the Red Raiders 13-2 to open the second half and took its first lead when McDonald made consecutive 3-pointers.

    The Lobos led by seven with 6:40 remaining before Mike Singletary and Texas Tech mounted a comeback. Singletary scored seven of Texas Tech's final 11 points but missed a running jumper in the lane as time expired.

    Singletary led all scorers with 18 points. It was the Red Raiders' first game without senior point guard John Roberson, suspended this week for violating team rules.

    Texas Tech (6-7) jumped out to a 25-10 lead in the first 10 minutes but watched New Mexico go on a 16-2 run as the Red Raiders turned the ball over seven times.
