Recap: Texas Tech vs. Alabama

Lubbock, TX (Sports Network) - Trevor Lacey paced the Crimson Tide with 21 points to lift Alabama to a 66-62 decision over the Texas Tech Red Raiders in a non-conference bout at United Spirit Arena.

Trevor Releford tallied 17 points thanks to an 11-of-14 performance at the charity stripe for Alabama (7-3), which snapped a three-game losing slide with the win. Moussa Gueye pulled down a team-high total of seven rebounds in just 11 minutes of action.

Jaye Crockett recorded a double-double for the Red Raiders (5-3) with 22 points and 11 rebounds off the bench. Jordan Tolbert chipped in 12 points as TTU lost for the second time in a row.

The Crimson Tide wasted no time taking control as they built a double-digit advantage on the scoreboard less than seven minutes after tip-off before taking a 43-27 lead into halftime. Alabama knocked down 53.8 percent of its field goal attempts including 5-of-9 from three-point range in the first half. TTU converted 35.7 percent of its shots from the floor and just 1-of-9 tries from distance in the opening 20 minutes.

The Red Raiders stepped it up on the defensive end after the break and held the visitors to just five points over a span of 12:25 in the second half. The strong effort allowed TTU to narrow the deficit to just two points with just over a minute remaining, but Levi Randolph hit a clutch jumper with 36 seconds showing on the clock to make it a two possession game. Alabama saw its big lead evaporate after going 0-of-5 from beyond the arc in the second period.

The Crimson Tide managed to pick up the victory despite committing 20 turnovers. TTU was unable to take advantage and shot 37.9 percent from the floor in the game.
