Did the fans have the right to rush the court?
West Virginia has fared pretty well without one of the best small forwards in the Big 12.
No. 8 Texas Tech didn't miss a shot over the final 8:04 during a 7-for-7 finish that enabled a 72-71 win over the Mountaineers and forged a four-way tie atop the Big 12.
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. His shots are no longer falling, but he still recorded 14 assists in those two games, and, of course, one of those outings was a win at home over a very good Texas Tech team. WVU sophomore forward hit a 3 to give his team momentum and a 52-48 lead, yet the Red Raiders would not go away again.
West Virginia led virtually the whole game, and was up 18 early in the second half. "And in today's game that's all there is".
In the video, a Tech fan appears to bump into a West Virginia player before the player allegedly turns and punches the fan, appearing to knock the fan's hat off. Huggins' squad knows that's a opportunity they can't just pass up. "He's played against those guys". "How hard can you play when everyone's in foul trouble?" Sagaba Konate leads in rebounds with 7.5 while Carter tops in assists with 6.8 per game.
Jevon Carter scored 28 points - one off his career high - for West Virginia, which was denied its first 5-0 start in its sixth season in the Big 12.
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. "Just trying to stay part of the race". Here's the list: at No. 8 Texas Tech, at home versus No. 12 Kansas and Texas, at No. 16 TCU and at home against No. 21 Kentucky. Defensively, Texas Tech yields 60.2 points per game against the opposing teams. Starting center Udoka Azubuike had just seven rebounds in a combined 44 minutes over two games this week.
Liverpool-bound Keita hits wonder goal for Leipzig
Keita was booked in the second half, his fifth yellow card of the season ensuring he'll be suspended for the following game. Rangnick told Sky Germany: "Neither the player has told us that he wants to change, nor is there an offer from Liverpool ".
No. 5 Wichita State 72, Tulsa 69: Landry Shamet and Conner Frankamp each scored 16 points for Wichita State (15-2, 5-0 American Athletic Conference).
Ahmad's 34 minutes were the second-most on either team (behind Carter's 39).
Villanova 78, St. John's 71: Donte DiVincenzo hit six 3-pointers and scored 25 points to help No. 1 Villanova silence a rowdy NY crowd and hold off upset-minded St. John's at Madison Square Garden. But Huggins also said he's not certain Ahmad will immediately be in good game shape.
The second half would see a memorable display of back-and-forth action between the two teams.
Huggins likened the situation to Wes Harris playing only six minutes in Tuesday's win over Baylor. Beard said both players are being evaluated on a day-to-day basis.
"We're going to have the bull's-eye on our back, but that's what you play for", Huggins said Thursday.
NO. 19 CLEMSON 72, NO. 18 MIAMI 63: Donte Grantham had 18 points, including four 3-pointers, and Mark Donnal had 12 points, including two critical second-half 3s, as the host Tigers (15-2, 4-1 ACC) continued their best start in nine seasons by outlasting the Hurricanes (13-3, 3-2).
