Texas Tech (6-1) suffered its first setback of the season last Wednesday when falling at Providence 72-68. The Red Raiders led by as many as 14 midway through the first half but let the lead slip away as the Friars maintained the edge for the rest of the contest. Terrence Shannon led with 17 points.
