Tweety Carter scored 18 points to lead No. 21 Baylor past Texas Tech 86-68 on Tuesday night, the Bears' sixth win in seven games.
The Bears (23-6, 10-5 Big 12) got off to a slow start and
trailed by 11 points in the first half but came to life right after
Baylor used a 14-5 run to go up 51-43, then built its largest
lead, 76-58, on a dunk by Ekpe Udoh with 5:29 remaining.
Texas Tech whittled its deficit to 81-68 on a jumper in the lane
by Mike Singletary with 2:32 remaining but the Red Raiders could
get no closer.
Singletary scored 20 points to lead Texas Tech (16-13, 4-11).
Baylor had five players score in double figures.
The loss was the Red Raiders' sixth straight overall and their
fourth consecutive at home. The last time Tech lost four straight
conference games at home was in 2000.
