LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) - Robert Lewandowski scored 17 points, converting all seven free throw attempts, to lead Texas Tech over North Texas 69-64 on Wednesday night as the Red Raiders withstood a late rally.

Chris Jones led North Texas with 31 points, shooting 12 of 13 from the foul line.

The Mean Green (1-1) cut the Red Raiders' lead to one three times in the final 2 minutes, but Texas Tech hit a pair of free throws after each North Texas basket during the stretch to put the lead back to three.

North Texas went on two 5-minute field-goal droughts early in the second half, letting the Red Raiders (2-0) balloon a three-point halftime lead to a 53-40 cushion midway through the second half.

For the game, North Texas shot 36 percent, including a 1-for-16 mark from beyond the 3-point line.
