LUBBOCK, Texas -- Jaye Crockett scored 20 points and grabbed eight rebounds to lead Texas Tech to an 84-75 win over Jackson State Monday night.
Crockett, who has been the Red Raiders' high scorer the past three games, got into early foul trouble but helped revive the offense late in the first half.
Josh Gray had two steals in the first two minutes of the second half that helped the Red Raiders to an 11-0 run. They kept the lead the rest of the way.
Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
Guard Naz Mitrou-Long, whose 2015-16 season ended in December due to hip problems, has been granted a hardship waiver for the coming season, Iowa State said.
As the Sooners look to life without superstar Buddy Hield and his sidekicks, it's clear their unseasoned players will need to grow up fast.
