FORT WORTH, Texas - Mike Miles Jr. scored 23 points, and No. 18 TCU rallied in the second half for a 67-61 victory over Texas Tech in the Big 12 opener for both teams.

The Horned Frogs (12-1, 1-0 Big 12) won their 10th consecutive game.

They took their first lead since early in the first half when Miles hit a driving layup to put TCU up 59-58 with 3:37 remaining. Miles then gave the Frogs their biggest lead to that point with a three-point play on another driving bucket after De'Vion Harmon's 3-point attempt in front of the Texas Tech bench was blocked.

The Red Raiders (10-3) led by 13 late in the first half and got the margin back to nine midway through the second half - after TCU had pulled within one before its decisive surge. Freshman Pop Isaacs scored 14 of his 17 points in the second half, including several 3s that helped hold off the TCU rally. Harmon scored 13, and Daniel Batcho had nine rebounds and five blocks.

Emanuel Miller scored 16 points, and Damion Baugh added 14 for TCU.

Miles and Eddie Lampkin Jr., who had eight rebounds, combined to score the first 10 points of the second half as TCU finished a 12-0 run to get within 37-36.

Isaacs answered with a 3-pointer, then did it again after the Horned Frogs got even at 53 with seven minutes to go. The lead was still three later when TCU went in front for good on a 9-0 run, with Miles scoring the last seven of those points.

BIG PICTURE

Texas Tech: Kevin Obanor, who averaged 21.4 points in the previous five games, was limited to six points on just seven shots (2 of 7). He had a team-high five of Texas Tech's season-high 23 turnovers.

TCU: The Horned Frogs were flirting with their worst shooting performance of the season before heating up enough late to wrap at 40%. The season low of 35.6% came in TCU's only loss, 64-63 to Northwestern State.
