By Jaden Santos / Alpha Media Intern


Lubbock, Texas – Unranked Texas Tech delivered a resounding victory against the No. 6 Kansas Jayhawks, marking their worst loss of the season.


Texas Tech, with a record of 18-6 (7-4 Big 12), shot 49.1% from the field and 38.5% from beyond the arc. In contrast, the Jayhawks (19-6, 7-5 Big 12) shot a whopping 32.7% from the field and 18.8% from the arc.


The Jayhawks faced challenges throughout the game, with star guard and Big 12 leading scorer Kevin McCullar Jr sidelined, and guard Dujaun Harris battling an ankle injury. 


None of that may have mattered with the standout performance of Texas Tech’s guard Darrion Williams.

Williams had a flawless night, scoring a career-high 30 points by going 12-12 from the field, including four three-pointers, and securing 11 rebounds. His remarkable 12 consecutive field goals without a miss set a new record for a Texas Tech player.


Forward Warren Washington added 11 points while only playing 20 minutes battling an ankle injury that took place mid game. Guard Kerwin Walton and Robert Jennings followed adding 8 points a piece.


Star center Hunter Dickinson who averages 18.2 points per game was held to just 5 points. Kansas coach Bill Self, received his first ejection in 21 seasons at Kansas during the second half. 


After the ejection, Pop Issacs made all four free throws, solidifying the Red Raiders’ dominance with a 63-43 lead.


The 29-point victory marked Texas Tech’s largest win over the Jayhawks, boosting their home record to 13-1.


With eyes set on another challenging matchup against ranked opponent Iowa State this Saturday, the Red Raiders will look to secure another quad one win.
