LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) Javaris Willis scored a career-high 21 points and Robert Lewandowski had 16 to lead Texas Tech over Oklahoma 65-47 on Saturday night, giving the Red Raiders their first Big 12 win.

Texas Tech (8-16, 1-11) ended an 11-game losing streak. The Red Raiders never trailed in the second half and used a 17-5 run, with Lewandowski getting 12 of the points, to go up 51-37 with about seven minutes remaining.

Oklahoma (13-11, 3-9) lost its fourth straight.

The Sooners didn't shoot like a team that ranks third in the Big 12 in 3-pointers. Sam Groom hit the team's first shot from behind the arc with 4:42 remaining.

Andrew Fitzgerald scored 14 points to lead Oklahoma. The Sooners' leading scorer, Steven Pledger, had just four points, far below his 17.8-point average.

The win ended Texas Tech coach Billy Gillispie's longest losing streak. Gillispie lost eight straight in his first year at UTEP in 2003.
