Big 12 Week 3 Preview: Texas Tech and Kansas

WVU set for Ahmad's return in top 10 matchup

Photos courtesy of West Virginia University Junior Esa Ahmad is returning to WVU's lineup after being suspended the first 16 games of the year.

Texas Tech Head coach Chris Beard is in his second season in Lubbock. Here's the list: at No. 8 Texas Tech, at home versus No. 12 Kansas and Texas, at No. 16 TCU and at home against No. 21 Kentucky. Jevon couldn't find any open space and ended with 8 points, Teddy Buckets had 0 points and 4 fouls. Texas Tech won, 90-54.

But the Red Raiders had other plans, led by Keenan Evans scoring 20 points of his own, doing it on an efficient 6/10 shooting (8/9 FT).

Okonkwo, who made a layup with 3.2 seconds left in regulation to force overtime, and Jordan Moore had double-doubles for the Horned Frogs (12-5, 3-3 Big 12), who beat No. 7 Texas on Wednesday. He can finish around the rim and has a good mid-range jumper, shooting 61.2% from the field. (13.8) at the guards with sophomores West (12.9), Wesley Harris (6.1) and Sagaba Konate (9.0) at the forwards. "We got our center shooting whatever that was, a 3-point shot from the top of the key". Smith leads in rebounds with 4.4 while Evans tops in assists with 1.4 per game. With Zach Smith day to day, they may be down to nine.

- Freshman Zhaire Smith cradled the inbounds pass as the final eight-tenths of a second ticked off the clock and the frenzied Texas Tech fans rushed the court. Kansas also starts Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk at the four and he can really make the three-point shots.

Clemson 72, Miami 63: Donte Grantham had 18 points, including four 3-pointers, and Mark Donnal had 12 points, including two critical second-half 3s, as No. 19 Clemson outlasted 18th-ranked Miami.

Conagra Brands Inc (CAG) Director Joie A. Gregor Sells 5250 Shares
Loring Wolcott & Coolidge Fiduciary Advisors LLP MA boosted its stake in shares of ConAgra Foods by 18.8% in the third quarter. Conagra Brands, Inc . (CAG) exchanged hands at an unexpectedly high level of 3.31 million shares over the course of the day.

"Freshman guard David Moretti (6'3" 165-lbs) is another player that can come off the bench and provide some offense, especially from behind the arc. He averages 17 points per game and shoots 48% from downtown. This is a very experienced Texas Tech team and the Press might not work as well it usually does.

However, there are times when it's questionable to rush the court. A win would have given the Raiders road victories at both OU and KU. They will drive the ball into the paint and kick the ball out to one of their shooters.

They were the last team in the Big 12 with a ideal league record.

West Virginia will get another offensive weapon this weekend with Esa Ahmad eligible to play after serving his suspension.

Bill Self's team took care of Iowa State in Lawrence on Tuesday night, and this weekend, the Jayhawks will host Kansas State. And I can say same thing about several more of their players. 7 West Virginia a one-point overtime loss at United Supermarkets Arena last season. Following a game of being held in the thirtieth percentile in field goal percentage, West Virginia increases their average by 13.2%.

The No. 8 Texas Tech men's basketball team defeated No. 2 West Virginia, 72-71, on Saturday, Jan. 13, as the two teams battled in a thrilling game that came down to the wire. I expect the Red Raiders to be riding on a lot of emotion to start the game. The defense, which had such a strong start to the season, looks completely different, allowing an average of 94 points over its first four conference games. Guard Malik Newman might be taking over as the best player on this team.
