Lubbock, TX (Sports Network) - Alan Voskuil scored a game-high 18 points and shot a perfect 10-for-10 from the foul line, including eight down the stretch, as Texas Tech stunned fifth-ranked Texas, 83-80, at United Spirit Arena.

D.J. Augustin poured in a game-high 30 points for the Longhorns (24-5, 11-3 Big 12), who had an eight-game winning streak broken. Texas is tied with sixth-ranked Kansas, who defeated Kansas State 88-74 on Saturday night, for first place in the Big 12 standings.

The Longhorns refused to go away, and an Augustin three made it 72-68. However, Zeno made a foul shot, and Voskuil made a pair from the charity stripe to put the Red Raiders ahead 75-68 with 1:03 on the clock.
After Abrams knocked down a trey, Zeno turned the ball over on the ensuing inbounds pass, resulting in an easy lay-in for Augustin, which trimmed the deficit to two, 75-73.
Mason followed up a pair of free throws by Voskuil with a three that cut the margin to one, 81-80, with 13 seconds remaining. Voskuil hit another pair from the foul line to make it 83-80 and Zeno fouled Augustin, sending him to the foul line for a 1-and-1 with 5.1 seconds to go. Augustin missed the free throw and J.D. Lewis grabbed the offensive board, but his desperation three came up short and Texas Tech held on for the upset.
