 LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) -Texas Tech gave coach Pat Knight something his famous father never received from the Red Raiders: 167 points.
Trevor Cook scored a career-high 20 and was one of 10 players in double figures for Texas Tech, which shattered the school record for points Thursday night in a 167-115 victory over East Central.
Alan Voskuil and John Roberson each had 17 points, and Mike Singletary and Wally Dunn added 16 apiece for the Red Raiders (3-0). The previous school mark was 128 points, set in a double-overtime win against Texas on Feb. 20, 1994.
``I'm a big believer in confidence,'' Knight said. ``We got 10 guys that score double figures. Proves to them they can at least put it in the bucket. Our defense is a little different. The game is just so different from anything. We're not going to face anything like this.''
n thanks to star quarterback Graham Harrell, All-American receiver Michael Crabtree and coach Mike Leach's pass-happy offense. The high-scoring Red Raiders (10-0) visit No. 5 Oklahoma in a huge game Saturday night.
The basketball squad out in Lubbock is off to a strong start, too - even after Hall of Fame coach Bob Knight stepped down last season with a record 902 career wins and handed the reins to his son.
Bob Knight's teams topped 100 points in five games at Texas Tech, with a high of 119.
This was the first time the Red Raiders surpassed 100 since a 103-50 victory over Texas-Pan American on Dec. 10, 2005.
Dunn hit one of his four 3-pointers with 7:43 left in the second half to give Tech 130 points, breaking the previous school record.
Dontae Figgs scored 19 points to lead seven East Central players in double figures. Justin Wilkerson scored 17 and Ian Adams added 15.
The Red Raiders took 113 shots to 94 for East Central (0-1), quite a pace for 40 minutes. Texas Tech led 77-57 at halftime.
``Wow, that was fun, wasn't it?'' East Central coach Terry Shannon said. ``We came in with a couple of ideas. We want to play an up-tempo game. We want to force people to play our pace. We didn't have to force them. They went with us and boy they shot the ball well.''
The 283 combined points also were the most in Texas Tech history.
