Depending on Ahmad's conditioning and rustiness - possibly mitigated by his ability to continue practicing these past three months - he figures to deliver an immediate impact when WVU visits No. 8 Texas Tech in the nation's marquee game Saturday.

Niem Stevenson's free throws with 2:06 left snapped a 65-65 tie and Keenan Evans' leaning jumper in the final minute sealed a 72-71 victory over No. 2 West Virginia at United Supermarkets Arena in Lubbock, Texas.

The win moves Tech to 15-2 on the season, giving the team its fourth conference win of the year. The Red Raiders haven't faced a defense quite like this yet and I think their lack of scorers will be a problem.

The Texas Tech junior guard, who sat out a year after transferring from Florida, caught fire in the second half. "Starting Senior Forward Zach Smith (6'8" 220-lbs) did not play against the Sooners due to an injury and is still day to day.

"Freshman guard Zaire Smith (6'5" 195-lbs) is second on the team in scoring (10.4) and rebounding (4.4).

"Junior Center Norense Odiase (6'9" 245-lbs) leads the team in rebounds (5.5) and averages 4.7 points per game. Kansas also starts Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk at the four and he can really make the three-point shots. The over/under total for this game is listed at 144 points.

Texas Tech will be dealt with the task of beating a much-improved Texas team in its next game, which will take place in Austin on January 17.

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

West Virginia has won seven of the last eight meetings in this series, covering the spread in five of the eight games. Midway through the second half, the Red Raiders cut the lead to one as they continued to comeback.

West Virginia has the home court and will have the best player on the court, as they do most Big 12 games with Jevon Carter.

Teddy Allen will have to bounce back this game and with Esa coming back it's going to be too much offense for Texas Tech.
