LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) - Nick Okorie scored 16 points in his debut as a Red Raider to lead Texas Tech to a 81-47 victory over Saint Francis on Friday.

The Red Raiders started the game slowly, allowing the Red Flash to take a 13-12 lead in the early stages. But Texas Tech opened the second half with a 21-9 run.

Texas Tech also had solid contributions from forward Trevor Cook, who scored 10 points in the first half, and John Roberson, who added 13 points.
