NCAA Game Summary - Texas Tech at Kansas



(Wednesday, March 5th)

Final Score: (8) Kansas 82, Texas Tech 57

Lawrence, KS (SportsNetwork.com) - Tarik Black didn't miss from the field in his final game at Allen Fieldhouse and logged a game-high 19 points as No. 8 Kansas closed out its home slate with a thorough 82-57 pasting of Texas Tech.

Black shot 9-for-9 from the floor and Perry Ellis was also perfect on 4-for-4 shooting in a 13-point effort for the Big 12 champs (23-7, 14-3 Big 12), who appeared fully recovered from a loss at Oklahoma State over the weekend.

"I just can't believe it is over; not the season but the regular season games. I have played four seasons and it has been a long road leading up to this point, but now it is here," Black said. "It hasn't hit me as much as it will in the near future, but it is just puzzling to me right now because it seems like just yesterday I was beginning my college career."

Naadir Tharpe chipped in with 16 points, and freshman Andrew Wiggins, a projected high NBA Draft lottery pick likely playing his final game in front of the Jayhawk faithful, netted nine.

Toddrick Gotcher logged 10 points in a sixth straight loss for the Red Raiders (13-17, 5-12), who shot just 35.3 percent from the floor.

Texas Tech only made one field goal over the final nine minutes of the first half, and a 13-0 Kansas run, highlighted by Black's dunk, helped the Jayhawks take a healthy 39-19 lead into the intermission.

Kansas scored nine points on its first three possessions after the break to go up by 26, 48-22, as Wiggins and Tharpe each knocked down 3-point tries and Ellis converted a three-point play.

Consecutive offensive putbacks by Black made it a 30-point game with 15 minutes left, and the benches emptied shortly thereafter.

"Certainly we weren't much competition for Kansas tonight," Texas Tech head Coach Tubby Smith said. "We just didn't do the things we had to do to keep ourselves in the game."
