The Red Raiders dominated down inside, earning almost half of their points in the paint.

Kravic, who was 9 for 11 from the field and perfect from the line, turned his game up a notch when he realized no one else on the court was tall enough to block his shots. Kravic is 6 feet 11 inches tall.

"Just go straight up and let the refs decide," Walker said. "Stop deciding in your mind they are going to block your shot."

Heralded true freshman guard Josh Gray had a career-high 15 points, 13 of them in the first half. He added seven rebounds and two steals.

Sophomore Jordan Tolbert ignited the crowd with an alley-oop off of the backboard in the first half and added two big blocks that sparked the Red Raiders' momentum.

Texas Tech's clear advantage in athleticism showed as a six point lead grew to 19 and eventually capped off at 28.

Nineteen of the Red Raiders' points came off turnovers, and Tech's aggressiveness on the boards was on display as they grabbed 21 offensive boards which translated into 14 second-chance points.

The Mavericks, who are in their second year re-classifying for Division I, simply didn't have the depth to play a full 40 minutes against a BCS program.

Wednesday night was the first time two Red Raiders scored 20 points in the same game since March 6, 2010, at Colorado.
