The Texas Tech basketball team has not been above .500 through six conference games since Bob Knight’s last game in 2008 when they were 3-3. They had that opportunity tonight against West Virginia in Morgantown.

In the first half, WVU couldn't miss in the opening minutes, draining their first six shots from 3-point range. One of those came from Eron Harris which put the Mountaineers ahead 14-6. 

But Tech answered quickly with a steal that led to a run-out that Jaye Crockett would put to rest with the lay-in to pull the Red Raiders within two points, 20-18.

While on a 16-0 run, Dusty Hannahs drained a three-pointer from the corner putting Tech up by six, 26-20. Hannahs shot 100 percent from the 3-point line going 7-7 as part of his career high 25 points.

WVU however, would retake the lead before halftime. Morgantown-native Nathan Adrian buried a corner-3 to give West Virginia a 40-39 at the break.

The Red Raiders would keep it close throughout the second half but end up falling 87-81 to the Mountaineers. They are now 2-4 in Big 12 play.
