LUBBOCK, TX -- Blake Griffin scored 20 points and grabbed 19 rebounds in his first game back from a concussion, leading No. 3 Oklahoma to a 78-63 over Texas Tech on Saturday.

The Sooners never trailed, but Tech got within 50-49 midway through the second half. The Sooners, though, pulled away steadily after that for the win, which ended a two-game skid.

Griffin did not play in the Sooners' loss to No. 15 Kansas on Monday night, and was injured in their loss to Texas last week. 

Taylor Griffin, Blake's brother, added 22 points for the Sooners (26-3, 12-2 Big 12).

The loss was the sixth straight for Tech (12-16, 2-12). John Roberson scored 17 points to lead Tech.
