Texas Tech upsets No. 5 Kansas

January 21, 2007|From the Associated Press

LUBBOCK, TEXAS — Bob Knight considered astrology in trying to explain Darryl Dora's play in Texas Tech's 69-64 victory over No. 5 Kansas on Saturday.

"Maybe the moon was right," Knight said. "Darryl played, which is sometimes unusual."

Dora scored 19 points to help the Red Raiders end the Jayhawks' 10-game winning streak.

It was the second time Texas Tech has beaten the Jayhawks when they came to Lubbock as a top 10 team. Dora was also the difference the last time. In February 2005, He made a three-point basket with 3.6 seconds remaining in the second overtime to beat then-No. 2 Kansas, 80-79.

Texas Tech (14-5, 3-1 Big 12 Conference) executed Knight's tight man-to-man defense consistently in the second half. Until the 3:42 mark, the Jayhawks (16-3, 3-1) scored on only 11 of 25 possessions.

Alan Voskuil tipped in a rebound with 35 seconds left to clinch the victory after Jay Jackson missed a shot.

After Kansas missed two three-point attempts, Charlie Burgess got the rebound and passed the ball to a wide-open Martin Zeno, who dunked it to cap the upset.
