LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) -- Steven Pledger scored 22 points to lead Oklahoma to an 86-71 win over Texas Tech on Wednesday night.

Pledger was 6 of 13 from 3-point range. Romero Osby added 21 points and nine rebounds, and Amath M'Baye had 15 points and 13 boards.

Josh Gray led the Red Raiders with a career-high 26 points, and Jaye Crockett added 15 points and seven rebounds. Crockett's 3-pointer with 10:40 left in the first half gave the Red Raiders their only lead of the night, 18-16.

Gray's 26 points are a Texas Tech Big 12 Conference freshman record, eclipsing the mark set by John Roberson in 2008 twice with 25 points. It is also the most points scored by a Red Raiders this season.

Crockett also reached a mileston on Wednesday, as the junior moved past 700 points for his career. Crockett now has 712 career points at Texas Tech.

Late in the first half, Cameron Clark led a 14-3 run for the Sooners (17-8, 8-5 Big 12) to put them up 39-28 before Texas Tech cut the lead to eight at the half.

The Red Raiders (9-15, 2-11) got within four points on a Crockett 3-pointer 5 minutes into the second half, but that was the closest they would get the rest of the game.

Texas Tech reached 60 points in three consecutive games for the first time since 2011, snapping a string of 31 games.
