Overpowering Texas reaches 20 again

Published February 7, 2006
LUBBOCK, Texas - Even after P.J. Tucker had a career-high 17 rebounds as part of No.6 Texas' record rebound margin, he wasn't entirely satisfied.
"We still missed a couple we should have had," the junior guard said after scoring 18 to lead the Longhorns to a 65-44 victory over Texas Tech on Monday night. "It's just wanting to get rebounds. It's a mentality."
Texas Tech had two field goals over the final nine minutes and was outrebounded 50-22, Texas' biggest margin ever in the Big 12.
"It was a great night for us on the boards," Texas coach Rick Barnes said. "P.J. and LaMarcus (Aldridge) are terrific on the boards."
The Longhorns (20-3, 8-1 Big 12) won their 12th in 13 games to set a school record with seven straight 20-win seasons.
Tucker had his third straight double double - achieving the mark in the first half - and ninth this season. Aldridge, who struggled the past two games with foul trouble, had 17 points and 11 rebounds.
AP POLL: North Carolina rejoined the Top 25 at No.23 after a two-week absence. The top five teams remained the same, with Connecticut a runaway No.1 for the third straight week. Florida moved up one spot to seventh. LSU dropped out.
CINCINNATI 74, LOUISVILLE 68: Eric Hicks hit all 10 of his free throws, including two during a crucial 8-0 run late in the game, to lead the host Bearcats (16-8, 5-5 Big East).
STETSON 85, LIPSCOMB 67: E.J. Gordon scored 23 and Anthony Register had 20 on 6-of-7 shooting from the field, including all three 3-pointers, leading the host Hatters (6-17, 5-9 Atlantic Sun).
COPPIN ST. 68, FAMU 57: Tywain McKee and Talmadge Bell combined for 28 points in the second to lead the host Eagles (8-14, 8-3 MEAC).
MORGAN ST. 81, B-CC 78 (2OT): Joseph McLean had 23 points and nine rebounds for the host Bears (2-19, 2-8 MEAC). Morgan State's Marcus Gomes sank a 3-pointer with less than nine seconds left to force the second overtime.
KANSAS ST.: Coach Jim Wooldridge is scheduled for surgery today to remove a bulging disc in his neck, and it is uncertain when he will return to the team. Assistant Jimmy Elgas will be the interim coach.
REBOUNDING MARK: Josh Hinz of Beloit College had 50 points and 36 rebounds, tying the Division III record, in a 120-112 victory over visiting Grinnell on Saturday.
NO.2 DUKE 73, VA. TECH 62: Monique Currie scored 21 despite sitting out much of the first half in foul trouble for the visiting Blue Devils (21-1, 8-1 ACC).
TULSA 71, UCF 43: Emily Jaskowiak had 17 points and seven rebounds to lead the host Golden Hurricane (17-4, 8-2 C-USA).
FSU: Freshman Britany Miller, who averaged 10 points and 4.5 rebounds in wins against Georgia Tech and N.C. State, was named ACC co-rookie of the week.
AP POLL: Louisiana Tech's longest poll absence is over. The Techsters are tied for 24th with Texas A&M, the first time they've been ranked since the week of Nov.29, 2004. The Aggies made the Top 25 for the first time since it was 25th in the final poll of the 1995-96 season. North Carolina State and Kentucky dropped out.
