No. 2 WVU facing Texas Tech

No. 2 WVU facing Texas Tech

The West Virginia Mountaineers will play the Texas Tech Red Raiders in one of the college basketball games on Saturday, start time at 2:00 PM ET, at United Supermarkets Arena, Lubbock, Texas. Smith led all scorers (15) a year ago in the upset win over the seventh ranked Mountaineers.

Trailing 29-28, Carter knocked down a pair of 3-pointers which was the catalyst to a 10-2 offensive outburst to claim a 38-31 advantage by the break. Esa Ahmad added 18 points in his season debut following an NCAA academic suspension.

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. Smith had nine points and eight rebounds. King played over 30 minutes in each of the last two games, and on Wednesday pulled down a game-high 12 rebounds.

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

Kansas 73, Kansas State 72: Devonte Graham had 23 points, Malik Newman hit the go-ahead foul shots with 15 seconds left and No. 12 Kansas held on to beat Kansas State in a back-and-forth affair.

West Virginia controlled most of the first half behind its pressing defense and 3-point shooting. However, Smith has been slowed by a foot injury that kept him out of Tuesday night's Oklahoma game, a Red Raider loss. Here's how those two games should go. The Wildcats are 16-1 and 4-1.

NO. 5 WICHITA ST. 72, TULSA 69: Landry Shamet and backcourt mate Conner Frankamp scored 16 each as the visiting Shockers (14-2, 5-0 AAC) survived a scare. Brady Manek added 22 points for the Sooners (14-2, 4-1 Big 12), who made a school-record 19 3-pointers.

Jaylen Fisher had a career-high 22 points and Vladimir Brodziansky added 21 for TCU (13-4, 1-4).

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. Jevon couldn't find any open space and ended with 8 points, Teddy Buckets had 0 points and 4 fouls.

No. 19 Clemson 72, No. 18 Miami 63: Donte Grantham had 18 points for Clemson (15-2, 4-1 ACC). Luke Maye had 17 points and 11 rebounds for the Tar Heels (14-4, 3-2).

Arizona 90, OR 83: Allonzo Trier scored 25 points, Deandre Ayton added 24 and No. 17 Arizona used a late run to outlast Oregon.

Tennessee 75, Texas A&M 62: Jordan Bowden scored 15 points and No. 24 Tennessee handed Texas A&M its fifth consecutive loss.

Colorado 68, UCLA 59: George King scored 26 points, and Colorado dropped UCLA out of first place in the Pac-12.

The biggest lead for the Frogs, who had never won in Morgantown, was when they scored the first three points in overtime. King finished one point short of his career high while grabbing 10 rebounds.
