No. 15 Texas Tech knocks off No. 4 Texas, 79-77

AUSTIN, Texas -- Mac McClung has led 15th-ranked Texas Tech to victory over one of the Red Raiders’ archrivals.

McClung scored 22 points, including a long, tie-breaking jumper with three seconds left to give Tech a 79-77 win over fourth-ranked Texas.

The 10-2 Longhorns led almost the entire game following a blistering start against one of the nation’s top defensive teams. But a flurry of late 3-pointers and a game-ending, 7-0 run snatched the win for the 11-3 Red Raiders.

Texas had a final chance, but Matt Coleman’s desperation 3-pointer was way off target.

Andrew Jones had 20 for Texas, with just two coming in the second half.
