BOSSIER CITY, La. (AP) - Nick Stallings had 17 points and tiny Centenary came from behind to upset Texas Tech 70-66 on Saturday night.

Texas Tech (5-3) led 35-32 at halftime and by many as 14 points in the second half.

Texas Tech opened the second half with a 14-3 run to lead by 49-35.

But Centenary (5-3) scored the next 13 points, led by eight from freshman Anthony Gatlin, who finished with 13. Gatlin made a 3-point shot, a 3-point play and a layup as Centenary took back the lead, which changed hands three times, with three ties, during the next games last nine minutes.

Tyrone Hamilton, who finished with 12 points, hit a 3-point shot to tie the score at 66-66 with 1:35 left.

After a fight for the ball, Chase Adams leaped for a wild pass and hurled it back to the court, where Stallings grabbed it. After a time out with 36 seconds left, Adams drove down the right and made a wrap-around pass to Lance Hill, who made a lay-in to put the Gents up 68-66.

Trevor Cook missed a 3-point attempt on the Red Raiders' next possession. Stallings took the rebound, was fouled and made both free throws.
