Texas Tech coach Chris Beard said.

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). (#20 Northwestern, #22 Nevada, #18 Baylor, @ #10 Kansas). "They (Texas Tech) are for real".

Tech's leading scorer in the game was Evans, who put up 20 points in the win while also picking up five rebounds and a pair of assists. WVU sophomore forward hit a 3 to give his team momentum and a 52-48 lead, yet the Red Raiders would not go away again. He can finish around the rim and has a good mid-range jumper, shooting 61.2% from the field.

"Senior guard Justin Gray (6'6" 210-lbs) averages 5.6 points per game and 3.6 rebounds. WVU (15-2, 4-1) racked up the nation's longest wining streak in a variety of ways, winning with rebounding or shooting, free throws or defense, with halfcourt execution and full court fury. He can also get hot from three-point range. He is averaging a team-best 17.3 points per game and is shooting 49.2 percent from the floor.

This is the 12th such case in the same 2-kilometer area, the regional police office confirmed. He said 227 suspects were arrested during this period and DNA of 67 of them was got examined.

Arizona 90, OR 83: Allonzo Trier scored 25 points, Deandre Ayton added 24 and No. 17 Arizona used a late run to outlast Oregon. Francis seemed to relish the moment, staring down his teammates on the bench after each big shot in the second half.

Texas Tech only made four three-pointers as a team but made up for it by going 24/28 from the charity stripe, while only committing 13 turnovers.

However, there are times when it's questionable to rush the court. 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. They will drive the ball into the paint and kick the ball out to one of their shooters. "They got to the free throw line and we didn't". This is good news for a team that had one of their worst offensive performances the past Tuesday night against Baylor. And I can say same thing about several more of their players. This was simply Huggins' way of sending a warning shot over the proverbial bow before the Mountaineers sink any further. 7 West Virginia a one-point overtime loss at United Supermarkets Arena last season.

Allen came in averaging 9.1 points but failed to score in his last two games.

With the win, the Red Raiders (15-2 overall, 4-1 in the Big 12) improved their home record to 12-0. Starting center Udoka Azubuike had just seven rebounds in a combined 44 minutes over two games this week. The Mountaineers need to withstand the first ten minutes of the game, and not allow themselves to start the game in a big deficit. 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.
