Texas rallies to beat Texas Tech 61-52 in Big 12 opener

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Texas coach Shaka Smart drove home a very simple point to his players in the halftime locker room Wednesday night: If they didn't turn things around in a hurry, their season was over.

"When he said that," Texas guard Kerwin Roach Jr. said later, "everyone's flip switched."

Andrew Jones proceeded to pour in 15 points, Roach had all 13 of his after the break and the No. 10 seed Longhorns rallied past No. 7 seed Texas Tech 61-52 in the opening round of the Big 12 Tournament.
