AMES, Iowa -- Jarrius Jackson scored 17 of his 22 points in
the second half, and Martin Zeno added 16 to lead Texas Tech past
Iowa State 63-to-61.
It was the regular season finale for both teams. And Texas Tech
reached the 20-win mark for the fifth time in six seasons under
coach Bob Knight.
Decensae White added 11 for Texas Tech (20-11, 9-7 Big 12).
Jackson hit a runner to put Texas Tech up by five, but Johnson
answered with a quick 3 that with 29 seconds left. The Cyclones
then forced Texas Tech to throw the ball away, and Clark got to the
line with 11.7 seconds left.
Jiri Hubalek led all scorers with 25 points - one shy of his
career high - and Johnson added 16.
Taylor's 3-pointer pulled Iowa State (15-15, 6-10) within two
with 2:03 left. But Jessan Gray missed a putback under the basket
that would have tied the game, and Johnson front-rimmed a jumper on
Iowa State's next possession.
