LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — Ariel Atkins scored 22 points on 8-of-10 shooting and Brooke McCarty had 16 points, eight rebounds and six assists to help Texas beat Texas Tech.
The 51-point margin of victory was Texas' largest in a Big 12 game, surpassing its previous high of 43 points, set in an 83-40 win over Colorado on Feb. 23, 2005. It was Texas Tech's lowest scoring output since a 66-36 loss to Baylor on Feb. 13, 2016.
The Longhorns (15-3, 6-1) scored the first seven second-quarter points to take a 26-13 lead. Brielle Blaire answered with a 3-pointer to pull Texas Tech (7-12, 1-7) within 10 points, but the Red Raiders missed 13 of their next 14 field-goal attempts as Texas scored 30 of the next 33 points to make it 56-19 midway through the third quarter.
Blaire and Erin Degrate led Texas Tech with seven points apiece.

After the Illini (9-12, 0-7) scored the first five points of the game, Michigan went on a 21-2 run that included back-to-back 3-pointers by Flaherty, who was 5 of 8 behind the arc. It was 24-12 after one quarter and 37-24 at the half before a 17-2 burst to open the third quarter.
