West Virginia vs Texas Tech live stream is on WatchESPN. And No. 2 West Virginia absorbed another tough lesson in Lubbock.

After losing to Texas A&M, 88-65, in the season opener in Germany, West Virginia has not lost since, despite trailing at some point in every single game with the exception of the win at Pitt.

Jevon Carter scored 28 points - one off his career high - for West Virginia, which was denied its first 5-0 start in its sixth season in the Big 12.

The Mountaineers (15-2, 4-1 Big 12) couldn't hold an 11-point lead in the final 13 minutes and had their nation-leading 15-game winning streak stopped.

It's going to be loud in the Untied Supermarkets Arena and West Virginia has a big target on their back.

"It's not even close", he said. His return is a boost to a team that is already 15-1 and ranked No. 2 in the AP poll. "I worry about his conditioning".

"We just had guys that were really out of character", Huggins said. We think you've got to be a team that defends.

But the Red Raiders answered with a 12-2 run - fueled by Keenan Evans, who scored the first seven points - to take an 18-17 lead at the 8:12 mark. "We are going to have a bullseye on our backs, but that's why you're playing".

The Mountaineers are still pretty good on the offensive glass (freshman has been particularly good in that respect during limited minutes), but the WVU offense has given the ball away once every five trips down the floor early in Big 12 play. West Virginia's press can lead to a lot of open threes if it's broken and those are shots that this Kansas team may be able to make.

From there, Harris would tie the game at 60 with his first three-pointer and field goal of the game.

The rematch in Morgantown also required two sessions to decide, with West Virginia outlasting the Red Raiders 83-74.

Evans, guards Niem Stevenson and Justin Gray and athletic 6-foot-8-inch forward Zach Smith are back this year.

Six-nine junior center Norense Odiase was the fifth starter against the Sooners.

They were the last team in the Big 12 with an undefeated league record.

If there's concern furrowing Huggins' brow, it could be that his team might not get a victory the next time it is held to less than a point per possession. No KU player would ever - or should ever - look past a game against the in-state rival, and Self will make sure of that.

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.

Arizona 90, OR 83: Allonzo Trier scored 25 points, Deandre Ayton added 24 and No. 17 Arizona used a late run to outlast Oregon.

"Ive got a great friend who this week told me, ‘Prince today, frog tomorrow, ?" "That's the most impressive thing".

Can Kansas extend its streak to an incredible 14 consecutive Big 12 titles? They're good. Real good.

Huggins is expecting another down-to-the-wire finish on Saturday.

Let's go out on a limb and say Kansas wins on Saturday.
