West Virginia beats Texas Tech 77-61

Posted:

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) -- Freshman Eron Harris scored 15 of his 18 points in the second half to lead West Virginia over Texas Tech 77-61 on Saturday.

Harris hit 3 of 5 3-pointers in the second half to spark West Virginia after missing all four tries from beyond the arc in the first half.

Aaric Murray added 12 points for the Mountaineers (10-11, 3-5), who were 10 of 18 on 3-point attempts.

West Virginia never trailed but the Red Raiders kept it close briefly in the second half.

Ty Nurse scored 14 points for Texas Tech (9-10, 2-6) and Jaye Crockett added 13.

After outrebounding the Red Raiders 10-2 early in the game, West Virginia finished with 24 to Texas Tech's 22.

Turnovers, especially in the second half, hurt the Red Raiders as the Mountaineers got 27 points off Texas Tech's 22 turnovers.
