— Jarrius Jackson scored 22 points as Texas Tech and some opening-game jitters spoiled Baylor's season debut, 79-61, on Wednesday night.

Baylor was prohibited from playing any nonconference games this season as part of NCAA penalties for numerous violations under former coach Dave Bliss.

Tech (9-7, 1-1 Big 12) built a 17-point lead twice in the second half. Baylor used an 11-4 run to cut the first one to 51-43. But Tech answered quickly, using an 11-2 run to go up 62-45 with 6:52 remaining.
