No. 2 Mountaineers Fall At No. 8 Texas Tech

No. 2 Mountaineers Fall At No. 8 Texas Tech

With the win, Texas Tech improved to 4-1 in Big 12 play and handed the Mountaineers their first loss since November 10, and their first in Big 12 play in the process. The Mountaineers had their nation-leading 15-game winning streak stopped.

The Red Raiders have drawn more than 12,000 fans for each of their two home games in Big 12 play and expect another big gathering against No. 2 West Virginia.

Carter picked up his fourth foul with 5:40 left but stuck around to tie the game at 65-all with a 3-pointer.

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.

NO. 10 XAVIER 92, NO. 25 CREIGHTON 70: Trevon Bluiett emerged from his shooting slump with 24 points, Kaiser Gates responded to getting dropped from the starting lineup by scoring 16 and the host Musketeers (16-3, 4-2 Big East) recovered from back-to-back road losses. But, even though Texas Tech was favored by 4.5 points, this win for the Red Raiders over a No. 2 team that hit 11 of its 28 3-point attempts is an impressive feat under any circumstance, and even more so considering it now elevates them into the conversation as one of the favorites to win the league. King played over 30 minutes in each of the last two games, and on Wednesday pulled down a game-high 12 rebounds.

Oklahoma 102, TCU 97 (OT): Trae Young scored 29 of his 43 points after halftime, and No. 9 Oklahoma defeated No. 16 TCU in overtime.

The Mountaineers are 15-1 overall, 4-0 in the Big 12, and are hoping Ahmad's addition can add to an already potent frontcourt that includes emerging forwards Sagaba Konate, Lamont West and Wesley Harris.




Seton Hall 74, Georgetown 61: Desi Rodriguez and Myles Powell each scored 19 points to lead No. 13 Seton Hall to a victory over Georgetown.

Jaylen Fisher had a career-high 22 points and Vladimir Brodziansky added 21 for TCU (13-4, 1-4). Anthony Lawrence II and Lonnie Walker IV had 16 points each for Miami (13-3, 2-2).

Shamet made the first of two free throws with 8 seconds left for a three-point edge.

Roby made six of the Billikens' 11 3-pointers and scored a career-high 27 points with Javon Bess adding 17 and Jordan Goodwin finishing with nine points, nine rebounds and 11 assists.

Arizona State 77, Oregon St. 75: Shannon Evans scored seven of his 22 points in a late 10-0 run and No. 11 Arizona State held off Oregon State. They combine to average 12 points as a duo. Tied at 82 at the end of the first overtime, the Seminoles scored the first six points of the second extra session to take control. King finished one point short of his career high while grabbing 10 rebounds. The story line of the game was poor free throw shooting by the Mountaineers (54.2%).

Washington State 78, California 53: Robert Franks scored 25 of his 34 points in the second half and set a school record by making 10 three-pointers for Washington State (9-8, 1-4 Pac-12).

The #2 Mountaineers can possibly get to #1 with two wins here.
