No. 8 Texas Tech edges No 2. WVU

The Mountaineers and Texas Tech Clash for the Top Spot in the Big XII

The Mountaineers and Texas Tech Clash for the Top Spot in the Big XII

Oklahoma snapped the Red Raiders' winning streak on Tuesday.

Wagner was 8 of 13 from the floor, making 3 of 4 three-pointers.

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. This year's team is different and they didn't lose, they played relentless defense and Jevon Carter was such a veteran all game. With 57 seconds left, Carter hit a clutch go-ahead three. "With West Virginia, it starts with their toughness".

There aren't many hospitable road trips in the Big 12 and the Mountaineers certainly know Lubbock, Texas, isn't an easy place to win.

The Spartans (16-3, 4-2) are struggling, losing two of three games with an overtime win over Rutgers in between the setbacks. "We are going to have a bullseye on our backs, but that's why you're playing". Texas Tech coach Chris Beard said.

"Senior guard Keenan Evans (6'3" 190-lbs) has scored in double figures in all but one of his games. Evans also has a lot of weapons with him on this team too. The Red Raiders won, 72-71, as they outscored the Mountaineers 41-33 in the second half.

Eric Dier and Jan Vertonghen joined an National Basketball Association clinic in London faced each other in a bit of one-on-one. Tottenham's last trophy was the League Cup in 2008. "He always wants to win".

The rematch in Morgantown also required two sessions to decide, with West Virginia outlasting the Red Raiders 83-74.

It was the first time Texas Tech won a Top 10 matchup.

Sagaba Konate had a game-high 11 rebounds, but one of his misses on an ill-advised long jumper signified West Virginias game for coach Bob Huggins. Forwards Zach Smith and Justin Gray round out the starting five for the Red Raiders. Brady Manek added 22 points for the Sooners (14-2, 4-1 Big 12).

While Texas Tech capitalized on its foul shooting - stroking 24-of-28 - Press Virginia's foul problems clearly diminished its defensive intensity.

The Mountaineers, however, get a key piece back for this one in junior forward Esa Ahmad. Kansas is still the defending champ, West Virginia has the defense, and Oklahoma has the star.

Congressman Jodey Arrington sat courtside for the big win.

NO. 7 TEXAS 79, KANSAS 62: Ariel Atkins scored 22, including 10 in the third quarter when the host Longhorns (14-2, 5-1 Big 12) turned a two-point deficit into a 14-point lead.

"Junior Center Norense Odiase (6'9" 245-lbs) leads the team in rebounds (5.5) and averages 4.7 points per game. Lagerald Vick gets the start beside Graham in the backcourt.

"We just had guys that were really out of character", Huggins said.

Culver is third, averaging 10.3 points with a team-high-tying 23 3s.

This was a battle between two very similar teams, with both having a star senior point guard, as well as both being great on the defensive end.

The surge that got the Red Raiders back in the game was a good illustration of the depth Texas Tech will likely rely on in the Big 12. With a win they they can be two games up on Kansas in the Big 12 standings after just seven games. An in-your-space squad that feeds off turnovers forced only three in the second-half when Huggins tried 1-3-1 and 2-3 zones.
