No. 8 Texas Tech edges No 2. WVU

No. 8 Texas Tech edges No 2. WVU

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. Smith led all scorers (15) a year ago in the upset win over the seventh ranked Mountaineers.

Texas Tech's Niem Stevenson (10) pushes away West Virginia's Daxter Miles (4) during the first half of an NCAA college basketball game Saturday, Jan. 13, 2018, in Lubbock, Texas.

West Virginia controlled most of the first half behind its pressing defense and 3-point shooting.

With only two minutes remaining, the Red Raiders tied the game, 65-65.

Wichita State 72, Tulsa 69: Landry Shamet and backcourt mate Conner Frankamp each scored 16 points and No. 5 Wichita State held off Tulsa.

NO. 1 UCONN 95, HOUSTON 35: Azura Stevens had 19 points and 10 rebounds off the bench to lead four players in double-figure scoring, and the visiting Huskies (15-0, 5-0 AAC) forced the Cougars into 28 turnovers.

No. 14 Cincinnati 78, South Florida 55: Jarron Cumberland scored 18 points, and Cincinnati (15-2, 4-0 AAC) shrugged off a slow start.

With Kansas winning by one over K-State and Oklahoma edging TCU in overtime, four teams are deadlocked atop the Big 12 after five games. Texas Tech isn't a big team, but they are long and athletic, similar to Baylor.

Villanova 78, St. John's 71: Donte DiVincenzo hit six 3-pointers and scored 25 points to help No. 1 Villanova silence a rowdy NY crowd and hold off upset-minded St. John's at Madison Square Garden.

Last Friday, the coalition announced it had intercepted a Houthi missile that was also allegedly fired towards Najran from inside Yemeni territory.

Gonzaga 75, San Francisco 65: Johnathan Williams scored 17 points and Josh Perkins added 16 to lead No. 15 Gonzaga to its 18th straight road victory in the West Coast Conference.

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. Anthony Lawrence II and Lonnie Walker IV had 16 points each for Miami (13-3, 2-2).

Brady Manek added 22 points for the Sooners (14-2, 4-1 Big 12), who made a school-record 19 three-pointers. He received a quick hook with 16 minutes left in the game after heaving up a 20-footer when he found himself trapped with the ball at the top of the key.

No. 21 Kentucky 74, Vanderbilt 67: Shai Gilgeous-Alexander led Kentucky (14-3, 3-1 SEC) with 22 points.

Allonzo Trier scored 25 points and Deandre Ayton added 24 for Arizona.

No. 24 Tennessee 75, Texas A&M 62: Jordan Bowden scored 15 points as Tennessee (12-4, 3-2 SEC) handed Texas A&M its fifth consecutive loss. 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 win moves Tech to 15-2 on the season, giving the team its fourth conference win of the year. He averages 5.4 points per game.

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