LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) - Bob Knight reached another milestone. Texas Tech upset 10th-ranked Texas A&M 68-53 for the Hall of Fame coach's 900th career victory.

After the game fans chanted Knight's name as he walked off the court to a thunderous ovation.

The win was Tech's third straight over an Aggies team ranked in the Top-10. A&M shot just 34% and committed 20 turnovers in falling to 15-2.

Martin Zeno scored 19 points and Trevor Cook added a career-high 14 for Texas Tech, which is 10-6.

Knight joins Tennessee's Pat Summitt and Jody Conradt of Texas as the only coaches with 900 college victories. Knight is the only Division I men's coach to reach that plateau.
