LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) -- Martin Zeno scored 26 points to lead Texas Tech past TCU 71-58 on Wednesday night, handing the Horned Frogs their first loss of the season.
The Red Raiders (5-2) came from behind after TCU used a 13-4 run early in the second half to go up 48-35. Then Tech crept back slowly.
Zeno hit a bucket with just more than eight minutes remaining to give the Red Raiders their first lead, 56-55. TCU started missing, and failed even to convert on a sure break-away, which Zeno blocked.
Trailing 57-56, the Red Raiders used an 15-1 run to close the game, including a 3-pointer and two free throws by Alan Voskuil and a jumper by Zeno.
There were eight ties and nine lead changes for the game.
Voskuil scored 16 points and Charlie Burgess added 13 for Tech.
Kevin Langford scored 14 points and John Ortiz got 10 points to lead the Horned Frogs (4-1).
TCU used a 13-4 run to start the second half to build their biggest lead of the game, 48-35. But Tech turned it around, using a 15-4 run to pull within 52-50 with just less than 10 minutes remaining.
The Red Raiders got their first lead of the half, 56-55, on a bucket by Zeno.
TCU led 35-29 at the half. The teams traded runs early in the half before TCU used a 12-4 spurt to close the half. The Horned Frogs hit four of seven 3-pointers. They got only three in the second half, finishing 7 of 17.
TCU got 10 points off eight Tech turnovers, while the Red Raiders failed to get any points off the Horned Frogs 11 miscues.
