STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) - Pop Isaacs scored 19 points, Darrion Williams added 18 and Texas Tech jumped out early and cruised past Oklahoma State 75-58 on Tuesday night.

Williams and Isaacs each shot 5 of 6 from the field with a pair of 3s and scored 12 points each to help Texas Tech build a 38-17 halftime advantage.
