West Virginia has fared pretty well without one of the best small forwards in the Big 12. "In a lot of ways, they have the kind of program that we're going to continue to try to build". Esa Ahmad added 18 points in his season debut following an NCAA academic suspension. A 2 p.m. tipoff is set for the game, to be televised nationally on ESPN. The Mountaineers hadn't lost a game since their season-opener on November 10, 2017.

That helped Texas Tech (14-2, 3-1) win eight straight games during December and January, including three over ranked opponents and its first three Big 12 contests.

Lucas Smith snatched the offensive rebound after Jimond Ivey, who totaled 19 points, missed a trey with:25 remaining. The Mountaineers had their nation-leading 15-game winning streak stopped. "With West Virginia, it starts with their toughness".

Ahmad has been practicing with the team while sitting out, and he should be well-adjusted when he returns to the floor. "We have to do some soul-searching", coach Tom Izzo said.

"I've been telling the guys that 'the dog with the bone is always in danger, ' " Huggins continued. "We love our men and woman in uniform and to be able to do that today to recognize one our own", Congressman Arrington said. "But I want to be a prince one more day". "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.

Texas Tech had its eight-game win streak snapped against Oklahoma, but the Red Raiders still boast one of the nation's top defenses, allowing just 60.2 points per game which now ranks fifth in the country.

"We're going to have the bull's-eye on our back, but that's what you play for", Huggins said Thursday. We think you've got to be a team that defends. "We could tell he really wanted that game".

Second-ranked West Virginia takes a 15-game winning streak and its unblemished record in the Big 12 Conference on the road for a test at No. 8 Texas Tech on Saturday.

No. 20 North Carolina 69, Notre Dame 68: Joel Berry II, who had 15 points, hit two free throws with 7.1 seconds left for North Carolina.

LUBBOCK, Texas — Freshman Zhaire Smith cradled the inbounds pass as the final eight-tenths of a second ticked off the clock and the frenzied Texas Tech fans rushed the court.

The rematch in Morgantown also required two sessions to decide, with West Virginia outlasting the Red Raiders 83-74. Thomas Welsh scored 20 points - two off his career best - to lead the Bruins (13-5, 4-2), who were only 8 of 18 at the free-throw line.

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.

"That is another thing about Texas Tech and west Texas".

Six-nine junior center Norense Odiase was the fifth starter against the Sooners. Two of the three in school history were this week, starting with a 75-65 loss to No. 9 Oklahoma on Tuesday. He pushed his season scoring average to 30.1 points per game.

"It's a hard league", Huggins said. "He makes huge plays for them".

"Senior guard Justin Gray (6'6" 210-lbs) averages 5.6 points per game and 3.6 rebounds.

No. 23 Florida State 101, Syracuse 90, 2 OT: Briain Angola scored 24 points and Christ Koumadje added a career-high 23 for Florida State (13-4, 2-3 ACC).

It was the Jayhawks' third Big 12 victory by a combined 10 points and they defeated the Wildcats for the sixth consecutive time and 12th in a row at Allen Fieldhouse. They can bounce it.
