No. 2 Mountaineers Fall At No. 8 Texas Tech

No. 2 Mountaineers Fall At No. 8 Texas Tech

Other than West Virginia, Texas Tech has received perhaps more acclaim for its defense than any team in the Big 12 in this campaign.

Fans can also expect to see Bolden (10.4), freshman Teddy Allen (9.1) and sophomores Harler (2.9), Maciej Bender (1.8) and Logan Routt (1.6). Tipoff is set for 7 p.m. while the contest will be shown on the Longhorn Network.

Evans hit a lean-in jumper to give the Red Raiders (15-2, 4-1 Big 12) a four-point lead in the final minute and send the first sellout crowd of the season into a frenzy.

Brady Manek added 22 points for the Sooners (14-2, 4-1 Big 12), who made a school-record 19 three-pointers. West Virginia's press can lead to a lot of open threes if it's broken and those are shots that this Kansas team may be able to make.

West Virginia coach Bob Huggins argues a call during the first half of an NCAA college basketball game against Texas Tech, Saturday, Jan. 13, 2018, in Lubbock, Texas. "With West Virginia, it starts with their toughness".

"It's not even close", he said. "I worry about his conditioning. He's played against those guys". "He may not be at the top of his game come Saturday, but it won't be long after that he will be", Huggins added. "We've got great, great guys ... but we're all in this together, and if you think you're not in this with us, then go do something else". "You work like insane to get to the point where everybody is excited about playing you".

"I know were going to be a frog again at some point".

That's certainly not the case today.

West Virginia's stay as the No. 2 team in the country will be a short one.

The last two games West Virginia has played in Lubbock have been down-to-the-wire affairs, WVU needed a last-second basket from Tarik Phillip to win in 2016 before losing in overtime there a year ago. The two teams last met on February 18, 2017 when the Red Raiders lost 83-74 in double overtime.

With 12:58 remaining in the second half, West Virginia looked to be well on its way to its 16 consecutive victory.

Texas Tech is slated to play a Tuesday road game against Texas.

Stanford 73, Washington 64: One-time Washington commit Daejon Davis returned to his hometown and had 16 points, Reid Travis also finished with 16 points, and Stanford (10-8, 4-1) completed its first two-game road sweep in conference play in almost eight years with a 73-64 win over Washington on Saturday night.

The Texas Tech junior guard, who sat out a year after transferring from Florida, caught fire in the second half.

"Junior Center Norense Odiase (6'9" 245-lbs) leads the team in rebounds (5.5) and averages 4.7 points per game.

"Keenan Evans is terrific at the point", Huggins said. Smith is the team's second-leading scorer with an average of 10.4 points per game while shooting a sizzling 61.2 percent from the floor. He averages 5.4 points per game. They can both shoot it. "They try to create some turnovers and they're good on dribble-drives and kickouts".
