No. 11 Texas beats Texas Tech in Big 12 opener

Javan Felix scored 15 points and Jonathan Holmes added 14 to lead No. 11 Texas over Texas Tech 70-61 on Saturday in each team's Big 12 opener.

Felix was 3 of 6 from 3-point range.

Holmes became the 34th player in Texas history to score 1,000 points.

The Longhorns (12-2, 1-0 Big 12) outrebounded the Red Raiders 41-29 and had twice as many points off turnovers.

Foul trouble early in the second half hurt the Red Raiders' ability to stop the Longhorns' inside game.

Texas Tech didn't start getting the ball inside until late and finished with 26 points in the paint.

Isaiah Manderson scored 12 points for the Red Raiders (10-4, 0-1).
