LUBBOCK, TEXAS (AP) -Ade Dagunduro scored 20 points and Nebraska held on for an 82-69 victory against Texas Tech on Saturday night despite a Red Raiders rally sparked by coach Pat Knight's ejection.

The victory ended a three-game losing streak for the Cornhuskers (13-7, 3-4 Big 12). They led by 17 points midway through the second half before Texas Tech pulled within 72-67 with 3:16 remaining.

The Red Raiders (11-10, 1-5) came to life after Knight erupted off the bench and sprinted across the court when officials called a foul on Alan Voskuil. After assistants pulled him back, the son of the famously volatile Bob Knight ran on the court again and was thrown out.

John Roberson led Texas Tech with 19 points, but he fouled out after the Red Raiders had pulled within five. Dagunduro made both free throws after Roberson's fifth foul, and Nebraska pulled away from there.
