Darrion Williams has a big second half for Texas Tech
Nevada transfer Darrion Williams had the loudest seven-point game one could ever hope for. That's because it felt like all of his buckets came at the most opportune moments.
Williams didn't score in the second half until the 8:55 mark when his layup put Tech ahead 61-52. That play was significant because it continued some Red Raider momentum as part of a 5-0 spurt that gave Tech its most breathing room of the night to that point.
Then, with 4:31 to play, Williams bullied Texas villain Brock Cunningham in the post for a layup and a foul that disqualified Cunningham from the game. Hitting the free-throw for the old-fashioned 3-point play, Williams pushed Tech's lead to 69-61 just moments after Toussaint had to head to the bench with four fouls.
But it wasn't all about offense for Williams. He also came up with three rebounds, two assists, two steals, and a blocked shot on the night.
Williams is Tech's most versatile player and he showed it in Austin. He didn't dominate any aspect of the game but when big plays were needed, he was often the man to supply them.
