West Virginia vs. Texas Tech College Basketball Predictions 1/13/18

No. 8 Texas Tech (14-2, 3-1 Big 12) hosts No. 2 West Virginia (15-1, 4-0 Big 12) at United Supermarkets Arena.

Texas Tech guard Zhaire Smith (2) battles for a rebound during the second half of an NCAA college basketball game against Florida Atlantic on Tuesday, Dec. 19, 2017, in Lubbock, Texas.

Red Raiders fans stormed the court after the win. The Red Raiders haven't faced a defense quite like this yet and I think their lack of scorers will be a problem. The Horned Frogs have won their last two, and on Wednesday they upended the Big 12 hierarchy by upsetting No. 7 Texas 79-77. The starting center is junior Norense Odiase, and even though he starts he only sees about 14 minutes per game, Odiase is productive; averaging four points and six rebounds. The Mountaineers (15-2, 4-1) had a 15-game winning streak snapped.

While averaging 11.3 points and 4.3 rebounds as a sophomore, Ahmad led the team in free-throw attempts (164) by a wide margin. Esa Ahmad, playing his first game of the season after becoming academically eligible, chipped in 18 points in a reserve role. Brandone Francis also gave TT a big lift with 17 points off the bench. This is a very experienced Texas Tech team and the Press might not work as well it usually does. (13.8), West (12.9), James Bolden 10.4 and Teddy Allen (9.1) per game.

However, Facebook is reportedly planning to pitch Portal as a social device for keeping people in touch with friends and family. Portal will feature a wide-lens camera that can detect faces and associate them with their Facebook accounts.

When these two teams last met, it was West Virginia's dynamic duo of Naomi Davenport and Teana Muldrow who carried the day. Senior Niem Stevenson is from Dallas and starts at the two, he averages eight points per game this year in just over 20 minutes.

Although the Red Raiders play a lot of guards, they struggle at times taking care of the ball.

King missed the first TCU game while recovering from a hairline fracture in her foot, and in her two games back in the lineup, Carey has wasted no time in tossing her right back into the thick of things. Jevon Carter is leading the team with 16.1 points, 5.5 rebounds, 6.8 assists and 3.6 steals per game.
