No. 2 WVU facing Texas Tech

Texas Tech Red Raiders guard Niem Stevenson looks for an opening against West Virginia Mountaineers Jevon Carter in the first half at United Supermarkets Arena No. 2 WVU facing Texas Tech
Frederick Owens | 14 January, 2018, 13:04

Texas Tech was a 4.5-point favorite entering the game, and was at home.

Fans appropriately celebrated the achievement by storming the court in a frenzy.

Keenan Evans scored 20 points to pace the Red Raiders (15-2, 4-1), none bigger or more improbable than his off-balance, line-drive jumper from the top of the key that widened the gap to 70-66 with 39 seconds left. That was the fourth time this year West Virginia was held under 40% and it was their worst shooting performance of the season.

Jevon Carter poured in a game-high 28 points for West Virginia, which had won 15 straight games dating back to a season-opening defeat against Texas A&M in Germany.

No. 15 Gonzaga 75, San Francisco 65: Johnathan Williams scored 17 points and Josh Perkins added 16 to lead Gonzaga (16-3, 6-0 West Coast Conference).

And, that will be the case at 2 p.m. today when the Mountaineers look to overcome the upset-minded Red Raiders.

What makes this even more exciting is that Zach Smith, the senior forward for Texas Tech still has more to give, as he's still dealing with a nagging ankle injury. 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.

"He's played well in practice is all I know", Huggins said. "I mean, those are the guys that we play".

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.

NO. 7 DUKE 89, WAKE 71: Marvin Bagley III had 30 points and 11 rebounds for the host Blue Devils (15-2, 3-2 ACC) in a game that Hall of Fame coach Mike Krzyzewski missed due to a virus. "We've got to stay humble, man". Christ Koumadje had a career-high 23 points and Phil Cofer added 16 points for No. 23 Florida State (13-4, 2-3 ACC) in a 101-90 victory over Syracuse (12-6, 1-4) in Tallahassee, Fla. If the Mountaineers can separate themselves further from the tough field with a road win, the next couple of months in Morgantown could be very interesting indeed. TCU has now dropped three of its four conference games by a total of six points, including Wednesday night's double-overtime setback at Texas when a last-second layup somehow rimmed out.

Wichita State 72, Tulsa 69: Landry Shamet and backcourt mate Conner Frankamp each scored 16 points and No. 5 Wichita State held off Tulsa.

Ahmad's 34 minutes were the second-most on either team (behind Carter's 39).

No. 12 Kansas 73, Kansas State 72: Devonte Graham had 23 points, and Malik Newman hit the go-ahead foul shots with 15 seconds left for Kansas (14-3, 4-1 Big 12). But Huggins also said he's not certain Ahmad will immediately be in good game shape.

Allen came in averaging 9.1 points but failed to score in his last two games.

"We're going to have the bull's-eye on our back, but that's what you play for", Huggins said Thursday. Beard said both players are being evaluated on a day-to-day basis.
