James' double-double keys win as Tech falls without suspended Knight
AUSTIN, Texas -- Facing a team without its head coach and mired in a season-long downward spiral, it would have been easy for Texas (No. 24 ESPN/USA Today, No. 25 AP) to expect an easy victory.
• The Longhorns defeated the Red Raiders in Austin for the 13th straight time and have now won eight of the last nine meetings in this series.
• Texas Tech fell to 0-10 on the road this season and lost its fifth straight game overall.
• Texas matched its season high with 19 offensive rebounds.
