Texas Tech reserve guard Brandone Francis (1) scored 17 points in a 72-71 win over No. 2 West Virginia on Saturday.

In the end, the #8 Red Raiders would come out on top 72-71 to defeat the #2 ranked Mountaineers and it was time to celebrate.

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. Esa Ahmad was finally able to join the team this past weekend and he put up 18 points and 6 rebounds against Tech.

Evans hit a lean-in jumper to give the Red Raiders a four-point lead in the final minute.

West Virginia had their best run in the 1st Half with 14:39 on the clock.

Police say that officers were called to a residence near Dixie Road and Sandalwood Parkway at around 10:45 p.m. 3205. Gibbs said there was no connection between the two investigations, describing them as unrelated domestic incidents.

According to Ben Baby of the Dallas Morning News, Kirby Hocutt released a statement apologizing for Texas Tech's failures at securing a path for West Virginia players after a court-storming incident which peaked in a Mountaineer player punching a Texas Tech fan. WVU fell from No. 2 to No. 6 while Texas Tech stayed at No. 8 after splitting their last two games against Oklahoma and WVU. He is shooting 77.3% from the field, averaging 14.8 points per game. Ahmad will have to be guarded by most team's most athletic wing player, which could open up shots on the perimeter for Carter, Miles Jr., West, and James Bolden. He is the Jayhawks best three-point shooter (48.0%) and averages 16.5 points per game. He helped the Wolverines pull away in the final minutes with enough free throws to keep a cushion.

But now the attention quickly turns to Monday's 9 p.m. showdown against the No. 12 Kansas Jayhawks at the Coliseum, a short amount of time to overcome a disappointing loss that ended college basketball's longest active winning streak of the year at 15 games.

"I know were going to be a frog again at some point".

"We've just got to come in there hungry", Ahmad said.

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.

The Wolverines (15-4, 4-2 Big Ten) have won eight of their past nine games and two straight against their rivals. Texas Tech then broke the tie with two free throws from Niem Stevenson, and led 67-66 after Konate made 1-of-2 free throws.
