LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) - Terrence Shannon scored 18 points and No. 24 Texas Tech rallied in the second half for a 71-65 victory over Southern Miss. The Red Raiders avoided the upset after re-entering the poll coming off the school's first-ever win over a top-ranked team. Davide Moretti scored 17 points and hit a punctuating 3-pointer on an otherwise rough shooting night for Texas Tech's only returning starter. The Red Raiders extended the nation's second-longest active home nonconference winning streak to 52 games. Texas Tech beat then-No. 1 Louisville at Madison Square Garden in New York last week.
