Texas Tech's triumph on Saturday snapped a 15-game win streak for West Virginia - the longest in the nation.
Five players are averaging at least 9.1 points per game for West Virginia, they are: Jevon Carter (16.1), Daxter Miles Jr.
Behind Carter in scoring was Ahmad, who made his season debut after he was ruled ineligible for game competition for the first half of the regular season for not meeting NCAA eligibility requirements.
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. The junior forward shot 6-of-12 from the floor, including two 3s, and grabbed six rebounds. So the result not only put the Red Raiders once again in a tie for first in the league standings, but also evened out the conference race with four one-loss teams.
The second half would see a memorable display of back-and-forth action between the two teams.
It was the first time Texas Tech won a Top 10 matchup. However, Smith has been slowed by a foot injury that kept him out of Tuesday night's Oklahoma game, a Red Raider loss.
