Longhorns end Red Raiders' 11-game home winning streak, 70-61
Texas coach Rick Barnes has known Tubby Smith for a long time. They first met playing against each other when Barnes was at Lenoir-Rhyne University and Smith was at High Point.
Barnes wasn’t surprised by Texas Tech’s late surge against his No. 11 Texas team.
“I said, ‘I’m telling you, his teams are never going to go away,’“ Barnes said. “When we were up 19, I told the coaches I felt like they had relaxed. Our zone had started flattening out a little too much. At the end, we got back on our heels, we just didn’t play the way we should play. No lead is enough.”
