Baylor routs Texas Tech

LUBBOCK, Texas — Pierre Jackson scored 18 points to lead Baylor to an 82-48 win over Texas Tech Tuesday night.

“I shot a lot of shots earlier today,” Jackson said. “...I like the feel of the gym, it felt good every time it left my hands.”

Cory Jefferson and Isaiah Austin each added 17 points, with Jefferson also grabbing eight rebounds for the Bears (10-4, 2-0 Big 12). Brady Heslip added 11 points.

“I came in knowing that we already have scorers like Pierre Jackson and Brady Heslip,” Austin said of his contribution as a true freshman, “. I’ve been taking my role as a scorer for us too.”

Jaye Crockett led the Red Raiders (8-5, 1-1) with 13 points. Freshman Josh Gray added eight points.

The Bears went on a 24-5 run, led by Jefferson and Jackson, which lasted over eight minutes in the middle of the first half. Baylor used a 22-7 stretch in the second half as they continued to wear out the Red Raiders’ defense.

Jefferson scored 13 points in the first half and Jackson added 12 to put the Bears up 42-23.

Baylor was without head coach Scott Drew, who served the second game of a two-game suspension. Jerome Tang filled in for Drew, who sat out the first two Big 12 games over failure to monitor the sending of text messages and making phone calls beyond the NCAA’s limit.

“I feel like my brother let me borrow his really expensive car and all I wanted to do was bring it back to him with no dents, full of gas,” Tang said.
