LUBBOCK (AP) — Martin Zeno sank a free throw with 24.9 seconds remaining to lift Texas Tech over No. 6 Texas A&M 70-68 on Wednesday night, giving the Red Raiders their second straight win over a Top 10 team.
Tech beat then-No. 5 Kansas 69-64 Saturday.
As they did Saturday, many of the 5,898 students — many who began camping out for tickets Tuesday afternoon — swarmed the floor after the win.
The Aggies had a chance with 9.3 seconds remaining, but Zeno stole the inbounds pass from Dominique Kirk to Joseph Jones and was fouled. He sank both free throws to seal the win. He finished 13-of-14 from the line.
The loss snapped the Aggies 11-game Big 12 win streak, the longest in school history.
Tech (15-5, 4-1 Big 12) hit only one field goal in the final 10:11 of the game, but hit on 13-of-18 free throws. Darryl Dora hit a 3-pointer with 1:03 remaining to put Tech up 67-66, but Joseph Jones hit a free throw to tie it at 67.
Zeno scored 22 points and John Plefka added 17 to lead Tech.
Acie Law scored 26 points to lead the Aggies (16-3, 4-1).
The last time Bob Knight won back-to-back games against teams ranked in the Top 10 was in January 2002.
