Some streaky games in college basketball today...

Baylor defeated Texas Tech, 71-59, in men's play this afternoon (play-by-play sheet). Baylor began the game on an 11-0 run. Texas Tech stuck around, aided by a 10-1 second-half run (cutting the Red Raiders' deficit from 41-29 to 42-39). Tech even took the lead, 50-49. At that point, the Bears unleashed a 20-2 spurt, putting them up 69-52. By coincidence, Texas Tech allowed a huge run in its Big 12 conference opener last year, too (29-1 vs. Oklahoma State).

Utah State's men came from behind to knock off Nevada (play-by-play), thanks to second-half runs of 11-0 (transforming a 50-41 deficit to a 52-50 lead) and 10-0 (expanding a 71-67 edge to the final score of 81-67).

Elsewhere in men's hoops, the University of Central Florida had its 14-game winning streak snapped, 76-71, as Houston dealt the Knights their first loss of the 2010-11 campaign. Donnie Jones is in his first year as coach at UCF and he seems to have made quite an impact!
