Ross scores 25, Smith 23 in Texas Tech's 83-79 win over TCU

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) -- Thanks to career nights from Aaron Ross with 25 points and Zach Smith with 23, Texas Tech rallied for a 12-point halftime deficit and earned an 83-79 win over TCU on Tuesday night to notch its fifth straight Big 12 Conference victory for the first time in its 20-year stay in the league.
 
Texas Tech (18-9, 8-7), which has not reached the NCAA Tournament since 2007, has won five conference games for the first time since the 1995-96 season when it won the Southwest Conference title.
 
Chauncey Collins and Brandon Parrish netted 39 and 19 points, respectively, for the Horned Frogs (11-17, 2-13).
 
Despite trailing by 12 at halftime, the Red Raiders did not come out deflated, jumping out to a 14-2 game-changing run to knot things up at 49-49 with 14:38 to play in the second half.
 
Texas Tech and TCU would trade the lead more than 10 times before the Red Raiders took control late.
