LUBBOCK, Texas (AP)—Alan Voskuil and Darko Cohadarevic scored 12 points each to help lead Texas Tech past Stephen F. Austin 69-55 on Thursday.

A layup by Mike Singletary with 8:44 remaining put the Red Raiders up 52-36 and SFA couldn’t cobble together a comeback.
Zach Williams scored 12 points to lead the Lumberjacks (7-4).
