LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) - Jaye Crockett scored 17 points and grabbed 14 rebounds to lead Texas Tech to a 91-56 win over Grambling State Tuesday night.

Crockett was a force in the paint on both sides of the ball the entire game. His 360-degree slam dunk with about 4 minutes left in the first half put the Red Raiders (3-0) ahead 34-15 and ignited the crowd. It was Crockett's sixth career double-double and second straight of the season.

Trency Jackson added 15 points, including a pair of 3-pointers to put the Red Raiders up 12-6 early in the game, and Jordan Tolbert had 14 points and eight rebounds.

Josh Gray reach double figures for the third straight game, making him the first Red Raider freshman in the Big 12 era to begin his career as a Red Raider with three strraight double-digit scoring efforts.

David Copeland led the Tigers (0-5) with 15 points, and Tery Rose added 13, including five 3s. Peter Roberson scored 11 off the bench.

The Red Raiders played aggressive defense all game long, picking up 17 steals and turning them into 29 points. It was Texas Tech's third straight game with at least 10 steals and the most steals by a Red Raider squad since Nov. 20, 2008, when Tech had 18 against East Central.

The win improves Texas Tech to 3-0 on the season. Head coach Chris Walker became the seventh Red Raider head coach to begin his first full season 3-0, joining Dell Morgan (1931), Bob Bass (1969), Gerald Meyers (1971), Bob Knight (2001), Pat Knight (2008) and Billy Gillispie (2011).
