    LUBBOCK, Texas -- After facing the first real test of Chris Beards coaching tenure at Texas Tech, the Red Raiders quickly separated from Eastern Kentucky late in a 90-71 win Saturday behind 20 points and seven rebounds from Shadell Millinghaus. Nike Air Max Bw Premium Usa .Justin Gray added 17 points and six rebounds for Texas Tech. Aaron Ross finished with 16 points, including making all 10 of his free throws.As a competitor, of course I dont want to see us get out to that kind of a start, Beard said. But, I look forward to adversity.The Red Raiders have started 3-0 for the first time since 2012-13 and have won 22 consecutive home nonconference games.Asante Gist led Eastern Kentucky with 21 points and three assists. Jayle Babb-Harrison had 14 points and Nick Mayo and Zach Charles scored 13 points apiece.Early in the first half, the Colonels (1-3) maintained leads of 19-9 and 27-12 before being held scoreless for a 4:56 stretch.I was proud of the way we got out of the gates quickly, especially after a long day of travel, Eastern Kentucky coach Dan McHale said. We let (Texas Tech) start carving us up defensively. And they got easy looks. And then the floodgates opened a little bit. We were still in control for most of the first half.During that cold spell, Texas Tech (3-0) tied the game and finished the first half with a 46-41 lead.With the game tied 57-57 early in the second half, Texas Tech took a 10-point lead when Eastern Kentucky had a scoring drought that lasted roughly five minutes.Eastern Kentucky, which made 12 3-pointers, shot 36.8 percent from the floor.After 24 points off turnovers in its last game against North Texas, the Red Raiders scored 19 points off turnovers.Relentless pursuit, Gray said. Not quitting. Not giving up. And just playing extra hard on the defensive end. Trying to push as much as we can in transition once we get that stop. And just making smart choices on offense.BIG PICTUREEastern Kentucky: Two of Eastern Kentuckys standout underclassmen have continued to perform well. Gist, a freshman, started 4 for 5 from 3-point range. Mayo, the Ohio Valley Conference Freshman of the Year last season, had nine second-half points.I think (Mayo) is as good as advertised, Beard said. I know what a pro looks like when I see it. Hell be a guy that plays after college. To me, hes a guy that can start on most BCS teams.Texas Tech: The Red Raiders have been without standout forward Norense Odiase for the third straight game. In a press conference this week, Beard said the timetable for Odiases return is potentially four to five weeks. Graduate transfer Anthony Livingston (11 points, six rebounds) has started and provided quality frontcourt minutes.UP NEXTEastern Kentucky: Visits Idaho State Tuesday afternoon. In November, Eastern Kentucky faces teams from six states -- North Carolina, Alabama, Texas, Idaho, Kentucky and Indiana.Texas Tech: Traveling to Mexico for the Cancun Challenge tournament, which starts Tuesday. It will face Auburn and Purdue or Utah State. Air Max Bw White Grey .

Tracey comes to the Blue Bombers after spending over a decade with Queens University. Most recently he was the schools assistant football coach. . SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. Sydney AFL coach John Longmire says Michael Talia must win back the respect of his teammates after pleading guilty to drug possession, but theres a more immediate challenge for his other defenders.Talia, who last month was stood down indefinitely from club activities and given a solo training program, was handed a 12-month good behaviour bond a week ago at Sydneys Waverley Local Court.Longmire revealed on Thursday the four-week stand-down period down would end on Friday August 19.Then he just needs to make sure that hes working really hard to be able to win the respect back of the players, Longmire said of Talia, who hadnt played since round one due to a serious foot injury.Hes spoken to the players, hes stood down until August 19 and then its about working to make sure that he gets himself in the best possible physical shape as he can be.Longmire suggested the Swans fit and available defenders would have their hands full against St Kilda on Saturday at Etihad Stadium.He was impressed by the marking prowess of the Saints in their 71-point thrashing of Carlton last week, which maintained their slim finals hopes.Our defenders have been in reasonable form, but their forwards - certainly to be able to take 27 marks inside the forward 50 - is a huge number, Longmire said.Among the Saints moost-potent attacking threats will be former Swan Tim Membrey, their leading goalkicker this season with 39.

Membrey 22, after playing just one senior game for Sydney, has flourished in his second season with the Saints.Its a real credit to him to be able to go down there and do what hes done, Longmire said.Hes kicked a lot of goals; hes been an important part of their forward set-up.Longmire suggested key forward Sam Reid was running out of time to break back into the senior side after not playing a senior game this season due to calf and achilles injuries.Its becoming really close now to make a call on him, Longmire said.Veteran key defender Ted Richards, who last week announced he would retire at the end of the season, would not be earning a 262nd and final AFL game on sentiment.You play if you deserve to play, Longmire said.However, he didnt rule out Richards getting another opportunity, after serving a one-game suspension on a rough conduct charge arising out of a NEAFL fixture.Hes still got an important role to play and its just the one week, Longmire said.Hes still training and doing all he needs to do to try and be available for selection.
