Tech Wins Non-Conference Finale, 70-56

Both Josh Gray and Trency Jackson reached double figures in the Red Raiders final non-conference game of the season.

LUBBOCK, TX - Freshman guard Josh Gray and sophomore guard Trency Jackson were the only Red Raiders to reach double-digits in scoring on Monday in Texas Tech's 70-56 victory against Florida A&M to wrap up non-conference play.


Both Gray and Jackson scored 10 apiece while the rest of the scoring for the Red Raiders (7-4) was balanced out evenly throughout the rest of the roster.


Four other Tech players scored eight or more points, with sophomore Jordan Tolbert missing a double-double, which would have been his first of the season and second of his career, by just one point scoring nine points while crashing the boards for a team-high 10 rebounds.


Tolbert has now scored in 42 consecutive games in a Red Raider uniform.


For the Rattlers (4-9), the scoring was led by Jamie Adams, 22 points on 8-for-20 shooting, marking the eighth game this season the senior guard has led the team in scoring.


Behind Adams, was Reggie Lewis with 10 points on a 4-for-14 shooting day.  


The Rattlers now get ready for Florida International on Wednesday, while the Red Raiders have almost a full week to get ready for their Big 12 Conference opener against newcomer TCU on Saturday.


Tech and TCU are set for a 5 p.m. first tip in Fort Worth and the game can be seen on Fox Sports Southwest.
