Texas Tech 84, Sam Houston State 52

LUBBOCK, Texas - Mac McClung scored 18 points, Marcus Santos-Silva just missed having another double-double and No. 14 Texas Tech beat Sam Houston State 84-52.

McClung, who was Georgetown's leading scorer last season, has 38 points in his first two games for the Red Raiders (2-0). The 6-foot-2 junior guard had two 3-pointers among his 10 points in the first eight minutes of the game against the Bearkats, when Tech already had a 20-4 lead.

Santos-Silva, the graduate transfer who is the lone Tech senior after starting all 64 games for VCU the past two season, had 12 points and nine rebounds in 19 minutes.

Sophomore guard Terrence Shannon Jr. added 10 points for the Red Raiders, who shot 50% percent from the field (26 of 52) and led by as many as 38 points.

Zach Nutall had 14 points to lead three players in double figures for Sam Houston State (0-2), which shot only 31% from the field (17 of 54). Demarkus Lampley added 12 points and Bryce Monroe had 11.

Nutall was coming off a 36-point game in the Bearkats' season-opening 97-67 loss at SMU two nights earlier, when he was 12-of-23 shooting and had six 3-pointers. But he missed all six of his field-goal tries and had only four free throws at halftime against Texas Tech, where he finished 5-of-17 shooting overall and was 0 of 3 on 3s.

McClung scored 20 points in a 101-58 win over Northwestern State in his Tech debut, when Santos-Silva had 10 points and 13 rebounds while playing 18 minutes in that game Wednesday.
