LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) Terrance Shannon Jr. scored 18 points and Texas Tech beat Omaha 96-40 on Tuesday night.

The 56-point margin of victory ranks fifth in program history. The Red Raiders beat Nicholls State by 72 points in the 2002-03 season.

The Mavericks (1-4) didn't have a double-figure scorer. Omaha was outrebounded 45-26 and outscored in the paint 54-10.

Texas Tech played without Kevin McCullar - their leading rebounder and No. 3 scorer - because of a non-COVID-related illness. McCullar is averaging 15.3 points and 6.3 rebounds per game this season.
