  • Texas Tech Red Raiders guard Niem Stevenson looks for an opening against West Virginia Mountaineers Jevon Carter in the first half at United Supermarkets Arena

You're a top 10 team that was favored at home. He's anall-conference player in the Big 12 for a reason. "He's practiced with us, you know, and he really hasn't practiced with the guys who played the most".

First, consider the team the Jayhawks are already chasing ...

If not for Young: West Virginia's Jevon Carter is having an fantastic season.

The Mountaineers survived a grueling test against Baylor on Tuesday in Morgantown and came away with a.

"Keenan Evans is terrific at the point", Huggins said. This season, however, that formula is proving more elusive.

While the extra attention has been good for tickets sales, Mountaineers head coach Bob Huggins has done his best to temper hisplayer's expectations considering there are plenty of conference games left to be played. That has had a big impact on this team's shot volume.

A video of the court storming recorded by a fan in the upper deck of the arena appeared to show a West Virginia player throwing a punch at a fan passing by, prompting his teammates to restrain him near the Mountaineers bench. It would be hard, but it's possible.

MICH. 82, NO. 4 MICH. ST. 72: Moritz Wagner scored a career-high 27 on 8 of 13 shooting as the visiting Wolverines handed the Spartans (16-3, 4-2 Big Ten) their second loss in three games, with an overtime win over Rutgers between the setbacks. Ahmad made one free throw to give the Mountaineers their largest lead of the game at 47-36, but the Red Raiders responded and found a way to win.

However, Hyundai has said that its design allows for more passenger space, improved aerodynamics, acceleration, and efficiency. This role belongs to FCEV as the hydrogen-based technology can mimic the range and "refuelling" times of a normal auto .


United Kingdom manufacturing output rises for eighth month in a row
Before the decline in United Kingdom heavy industry, the sector accounted for a quarter of national GDP. On a monthly basis, the sector grew by a better than expected 0.4% in November.


Behind Carter in scoring was Ahmad, who made his season debut after he was ruled ineligible for game competition for the first half of the regular season for not meeting NCAA eligibility requirements.

Once again, missed free throws by the Mountaineers contributed to the two overtime periods.

Ahmad has been practicing with the team while sitting out, and he should be well-adjusted when he returns to the floor.

Still, the trip to Lubbock, even with Ahmad, doesn't project to be a walk in the park. He is the fuel that drives this Red Raiders team leading the team in scoring (17.3) and assists (3.4).

For a few minutes Tuesday night, it seemed like Chris Beard was about to take command of the Big 12 title race.

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. The senior leads thecountry in steals (58) and played a major part in hounding Oklahoma's freshman standout Trae Young on the way to an 89-76 win inMorgantown, W. Va. earlier this month.

You know the rest. scored 22 second-half points, and Texas Tech lost to the Sooners.

West Virginia will next take on No. 12 Kansas at the Coliseum Monday at 9 p.m. which will be televised on ESPN. Huggins and his staff will look at the numbers this week and see that the Red Raiders have been absolutely dominant on the defensive glass in Big 12 play. West Virginia has a chance to start another one one at 9 p.m. Monday, when the Mountaineers play host to yet another ranked opponent in No. 12 Kansas (14-3, 4-1), a 73-72 victor over rival Kansas State on Saturday. With a win they they can be two games up on Kansas in the Big 12 standings after just seven games. "He makes huge plays for them".
