LUBBOCK, Texas -- Keenan Evans scored 28 points to lead Texas Tech over Houston Baptist 93-67 on Friday to clinch a victory for new Red Raiders coach Chris Beard on opening night.Today was about our players, Beard said. Im really proud of my association with Texas Tech and Im proud at the idea that I came back to a place I love. But Im not the story, the story is the players. Weve got guys out there wearing the jerseys tonight. Theyre unselfish, and they bought in. Theyre here for the right reasons. Theyre all good students and good people. Tonight was their story, and I thought it was a good story.The Red Raiders took a 45-36 lead at halftime with Evans scoring 18 points then opened the second half with a 14-4 run.Tonight was a special night because he was making shots, but I have a vision of Keenan Evans where even when he doesnt make those shots, he affects the game, Beard said.Anthony Livingston added 16 points, Aaron Ross 13, Shadell Millinghaus 11 and Niem Stevenson with 10 for the Red Raiders.I thought that we were just trying too hard in the first half, especially defensively, Beard said. Theres an effectiveness to patient defense. People associate patience with offensive basketball, but on defense you have to be patient.Zach Smith had three of the teams four blocks. Tech finished with 20 assists.Atif Russell scored 16 points and Josh Ibarra added nine to lead the Huskies.Tech shot 33 of 54 from the field to Houston Baptists 22-of-58.BIG PICTURETexas Tech: With a slew of new players and a new coach, Tech looks to make its return to the NCAA Tournament.

Eleven of Techs 20 assists also came from the five starters.INSIDE PRESENCEThe Red Raiders outperformed the Huskies in the paint. Tech scored 32 points in the lane.

Ronaldo produced a spectacular individual performance on Tuesday, scoring all three goals and guiding Portugal into the next years World Cup in Brazil with a 3-2 victory in Sweden.

George Kruis is available against Argentina on Saturday with Eddie Jones considering his immediate return to Englands starting XV.Kruis has missed the autumn victories over South Africa and Fiji after undergoing minor ankle surgery and his club Saracens estimated that he would be sidelined for four to eight weeks.The second row, an ever-present under Jones until injury struck, has made a rapid recovery while ensconced at Englands Surrey training base and Jones must decide whether to break up the Courtney Lawes-Joe Launchbury partnership that has served him well so far this autumn.Kruis is probably going to be available - hes fit and ready to go. He doesnt necessarily need to play for his club first, Jones said. Its not necessarily better to bring him off the bench. You talk to the players and they like to play with the best players at the start of the game. Well wait and see.Weve got great competition in there because Launchbury and Courtney Lawes have done superbly for us.Neither Joe nor Courtney had great training weeks. They both had ailments that clouded our selection a bit, so their efffort against Fiji was good.ddddddddddddJones has already pencilled in his starting XV to face Argentina at Twickenham with Mike Brown set to return at the expense of Alex Goode at full-back.I think I know the team, but its always up for grabs. The players have until 2.20pm on Saturday to get picked! Jones said.A few players may have clouded it a little bit after the Fiji game. I thought Elliot Daly was good on the left wing.Whether thats his best position, Im not sure, but it certainly worked. I was pleased with him and with Jonathan Joseph, whose defence was absolutely outstanding.Jonny May has had a good training week. Hes definitely fitter, definitely ready to go. And Mike Brown is in good nick, so theyll be back competing for selection.When asked about the duel between Brown and Goode, Jones replied: Where do I see it? Intriguing.Theres always one above the other. Its like life. Someone is always above the other. Youll find out when I pick the side next week.
