WVU's 15-game win streak snapped in narrow loss to Texas Tech

WVU's 15-game win streak snapped in narrow loss to Texas Tech

Texas Tech coach Chris Beard said. However, Smith has been slowed by a foot injury that kept him out of Tuesday night's Oklahoma game, a Red Raider loss. "But I want to be a prince one more day".

"We're going to have the bull's-eye on our back, but that's what you play for", Huggins said Thursday. Didn't play hisbest game at Oklahoma.

The Jayhawks survived, only they won't find themselves moving up this poll with close wins over TCU and Iowa State.

"Ive got a great friend who this week told me, ‘Prince today, frog tomorrow, ?" "It was basically a Z thatwas emotionally attached to that game and disappointed". He filled up the stat sheet, but endedhis streak of consecutive games with double figures at 10.

But the Red Raiders answered with a 12-2 run - fueled by Keenan Evans, who scored the first seven points - to take an 18-17 lead at the 8:12 mark. "Hopefully that's a sign of goodthings to come".

The #2 West Virginia Mountaineers (15-1) travel to Lubbock, Texas to take on the #8 Texas Tech Red Raiders (14-2) for the top spot in the Big XII Conference. A 2 p.m. tipoff is set for the game, to be televised nationally on ESPN. We collectively have a lot of work to do and a lot of it is our preparing.

Yes, it's January, and, yes, there's a lot of basketball yet to be played. We couldn't do what we do because I wouldn't have anybody left. It marked the highest WVU has been ranked since December 29, 1959 - JerryWest's senior season.

How big? And how much does that mean for WVU's next five games, a march through fire that, if the Mountaineers can win them all, should cement them as the top team in the country. "And that's why you admire what Bill's (Self) done at Kansas for all of these years because they not only got there, theystayed there". A typical West Virginia team would lose that game, much like what we saw past year.

The Mountaineers chances to do that increased as Esa Ahmad is expected to be back in uniform for Saturday's top-10 matchup againstthe Red Raiders.

Will Ahmad's resurfacing make No. 2 WVU better immediately?

Ahmad has been practicing with the team while sitting out, and he should be well-adjusted when he returns to the floor. The story line of the game was poor free throw shooting by the Mountaineers (54.2%). Okonkwo had 12 rebounds, Moore had 17 points and 11 boards and Toree Thompson had 14 points. He also was aggressive on defense, notching 31 steals and 21blocks.

Point guard Keenan Evans' 3 with five seconds left sent the game into overtime after WVU went through a six-minute field goal drought at the end of regulation.

Another key player to watch will be Jevon Carter, a two-way threat at the guard position for the Mountaineers.

If there's concern furrowing Huggins' brow, it could be that his team might not get a victory the next time it is held to less than a point per possession. "He's a guy that can run your team, he can score, he's tough, he's a great passer". It's the Big 12.

"I worry about his conditioning", Huggins said.

Texas Tech will also have to play smart knowing they may be without the services of seniors Zach Smith and Justin Gray.

Check back after the game for analysis.

"Teddy's attitude allowed Teddy not to play", Huggins said.

With that in mind, the freshmen class of Zhaire Smith, Jarrett Culver and Davide Moretti may be tasked with absorbing some of thoseminutes.
