Big 12 Week 3 Preview: Texas Tech and Kansas

Fans appropriately celebrated the achievement by storming the court in a frenzy.

The Mountaineers are legit, there's no question about it, and now it finally seems Bob Huggins and West Virginia are getting the recognition they deserve.

Despite Jevon Carter's 28 points and Esa Ahmad's 18 in his return from a half-season suspension, West Virginia (15-2, 4-1) couldn't maintain an 11-point second-half lead in the first contest between top-10 teams at United Supermarket Arena.

Both teams are 15-2 overall and 4-1 in the conference, but it's the Red Raiders that came away with a result that could boost them further up the new rankings on Monday.

By the end of the first half, West Virginia was shooting 47 percent from behind the arc and were led by Carter, who scored 15 first half points and connected on 4-of-6 three pointers. Thomas Welsh scored 20 points - two off his career best - to lead the Bruins (13-5, 4-2), who were only 8 of 18 at the free-throw line.

The forward will be in the lineup when West Virginia visits Texas Tech this afternoon. "He's played against those guys".

One of those miscues was foul trouble. 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.

No team in the country is happier than the Musketeers to be coming home.

James Franco "In Really Bad Place" Over Sexual Misconduct Allegations
Another student says that Franco takes out the safety guards for the oral sex scene on the set of " The Long Home " in 2015. Franco's first accusers came forward with their allegations against him on social media on the night of the Golden Globes .

"We know that our offense is going to come and go at times, but our defense has always got to show up", Moundsville native Chase Harler, who had seven points, three rebounds and two assists and steals, said. "Just trying to stay part of the race". Christ Koumadje had a career-high 23 points and Phil Cofer added 16 points for No. 23 Florida State (13-4, 2-3 ACC) in a 101-90 victory over Syracuse (12-6, 1-4) in Tallahassee, Fla. That opened the door for Texas Tech to eventually win the game in overtime on Anthony Livingston's 3 with six seconds left.

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.

In the first 20 minutes, it was a battle of runs.

Ahmad's 34 minutes were the second-most on either team (behind Carter's 39). But Huggins also said he's not certain Ahmad will immediately be in good game shape. His team entered the evening undefeated in conference play, and Tech was up on Oklahoma at the half in Norman.

Huggins likened the situation to Wes Harris playing only six minutes in Tuesday's win over Baylor.

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).

"I've got a great friend who this week told me, 'Prince today, frog tomorrow, ' " Beard said.

"We're going to have the bull's-eye on our back, but that's what you play for", Huggins said Thursday.
