In Texas Tech's easy 68-53 win tonight over Texas A&M (in which Bob Knight received his 900th coaching victory), the Red Raiders ran off spurts of 20-3 to close the first half and 20-4 midway through the second half, after the Aggies had closed the gap a bit. If you look at the "Game Flow" graph on's game-summary page, you'll see that Texas Tech (plotted in red) scored at a steady rate the whole game, rather than scoring in bursts. Thus, it was Texas A&M's (in dark maroon) "flatlining" (i.e., going virtually scoreless) for long stretches that contributed to the Raiders' outscoring the Aggies heavily during the two aforementioned barrages.
