WACO, Texas (Ticker) -- Ronald Ross is helping take a little pressure off of Andre Emmett.
Ross scored 24 points and Emmett 22 as No. 22 Texas Tech extended its winning streak to 10 games with a 75-66 victory over Baylor in a Big 12 Conference matchup.
One of the nation's top players, Emmett sometimes is relied on too much in the Red Raiders' motion offense. But Ross has begun providing another option.
Ross buried four 3-pointers and finished 9-of-14 from the floor en route to matching his season high for points. The 6-2 junior is averaging 16.6 points per game in his last six contests.
Emmett was his normal self as he made 8-of-15 shots, helping the Red Raiders (14-2, 2-0 Big 12) beat the stubborn Bears for the fifth time in the last six meetings.
Terrance Thomas, who returned after a three-game absence when he was ruled academically ineligible, scored 20 points for Baylor (5-10, 0-2), which has lost 17 of its last 19 contests against ranked teams.
Looking to match their longest winning streak in three years under coach Bobby Knight, the Red Raiders shot 55 percent (16-of-29) in building a 38-30 lead at the half.
But the Bears battled back, using an 18-7 run to start the second half, capped by R.T. Guinn's basket for a 48-47 lead with 9:56 remaining. Guinn also was reinstated Friday.
After Guinn's bucket, the lead changed hands seven times in the next 2:46. Freshman Jarrius Jackson's jumper with 6:32 to go gave the Red Raiders the lead for good at 56-55.
Jackson's basket also started a 10-2 run that Ross capped with a steal and dunk for a 64-57 advantage with 3:44 remaining.
Robert Tomaszek added 12 points and Jackson 11 for Texas Tech, which shot 58 percent (14-of-24) in the second half and 57 percent (30-of-53) overall.
Georgetown transfer Harvey Thomas netted 15 points for the Bears, who shot 52 percent (26-of-50).
