AUSTIN, Texas (AP) Clint Chapman scored 20 points and grabbed nine rebounds as Texas defeated Texas Tech 74-57 Saturday night.

Sheldon McClellan and J'Covan Brown each added 17 points each for Texas (14-9, 4-6 Big 12), which won for the second time in seven games, although the five losses during that stretch came by an average of 4.8 points.

The Longhorns rebounded at home against Tech by making 25 of 31 free throws. Texas attempted 22 in the first half alone, only two fewer than they took all game at Missouri on Jan. 30.

Ty Nurse scored 18 points for Texas Tech (7-15, 0-10), which is off to its worst start in league play since 2000 under head coach Billy Gillispie.

Gillispie, the former coach at Texas A&M, is back in the Big 12 after two years off from basketball following his firing from Kentucky in 2009.
