W VIRGINIA: Last season: 28-9, lost to Gonzaga in West Regional semifinals
Who's gone: F Nathan Adrian, G Tarik Phillip, F Elijah Macon.
Who's back: G Jevon Carter, the reigning Big 12 defensive player of the year, averaged 13.5 points, five rebounds, 2.5 steals and was the team's top 3-pointer shooter last season; G Daxter Miles Jr. averaged 8.8 points; F Lamont West; F Sagaba Konate; G James Bolden, F Maciej Bender.
Who's new: 6-8 Wesley Harris averaged 18.2 points and 8.4 rebounds and 6-6 D'Angelo Hunter averaging 15.8 points and four rebounds in junior college; freshman F Teddy Allen was the top prep scorer in Nebraska, averaging 31.7 points at Boys Town.
The Skinny: West Virginia has finished second in the Big 12 the past two seasons and has been picked runner-up again to perennial power Kansas. But the Mountaineers will be without second-leading scorer Esa Ahmad for the first half of the season after he failed to meet NCAA eligibility requirements. That will put pressure on a group of forwards with one combined start to produce until he gets back.
TEXAS TECH: Last season: 18-14.
Who's gone: F Anthony Livingston; F Aaron Ross; G Devon Thomas; F Matthew Temple; F Thomas Brandsma.
Who's back: G Keenan Evans, the team's top scorer at 15.4 points per game while shooting 43 percent on 3-pointers; F Zach Smith, who averaged 12.1 points and team-best 7.2 rebounds; F Justin Gray, who shot 53 percent from the field; G Niem Stevenson.
Who's new: Most of the team with 11 newcomers. Seven are true freshmen along with junior college transfer guards Josh Webster and Hyron Edwards, and two Division I transfers, Tommy Hamilton IV from DePaul and Brandone Francis from Florida.
The Skinny: With five seniors and seven freshmen, Beard was spot-on when he said the team's "chemistry is a work in progress." When the former Red Raiders assistant returned to Texas Tech last year as head coach, he brought in three graduate transfers among six new players. Whether the Raiders can get back to their second NCAA Tournament in 11 seasons will depend on how the seasoned seniors and the youngsters come together on the court.
No. 2 West Virginia puts streak on line at No. 8 Texas Tech

Second-ranked West Virginia takes a 15-game winning streak and its unblemished record in the Big 12 Conference on the road for a test at No. 8 Texas Tech on Saturday.

There aren't many hospitable road trips in the Big 12 and the Mountaineers certainly know Lubbock, Texas, isn't an easy place to win.

An unranked Texas Tech team handed then-No. 7 West Virginia a one-point overtime loss at United Supermarkets Arena last season. Now the Red Raiders find themselves ranked in the top 10 with a chance to regain a share of the conference lead.

But at least West Virginia (15-1, 4-0 Big 12) can take comfort in having one of its top assets back in the lineup. Forward Esa Ahmad missed the first 16 games of the season on NCAA suspension for undisclosed reasons. The NCAA cleared Ahmad, who averaged 11.3 points as a sophomore last season, to play starting with Saturday's game.

Mountaineers coach Bob Huggins said after his team's win over Baylor on Tuesday that he assumes Ahmad will have an impact on his first game back and find his rhythm very soon. But Huggins also said he's not certain Ahmad will immediately be in good game shape.

"I worry about his conditioning," Huggins said. "He's practiced with us, you know, and he really hasn't practiced with the guys who played the most. He's played against those guys."

Texas Tech coach Chris Beard said his team will prepare for Ahmad to play his usual allotment of minutes. However, the Red Raiders coach clearly thinks the specifics of the Mountaineers' rotation is secondary to their overall mindset.

"Teams have identities and coaches have things they believe in," Beard said. "With West Virginia, it starts with their toughness. In a lot of ways, they have the kind of program that we're going to continue to try to build."

Other than West Virginia, Texas Tech has received perhaps more acclaim for its defense than any team in the Big 12 in this campaign. The Red Raiders have held opponents to 60.2 points per game, ranking fifth nationally.

That helped Texas Tech (14-2, 3-1) win eight straight games during December and January, including three over ranked opponents and its first three Big 12 contests.

Oklahoma snapped the Red Raiders' winning streak on Tuesday. But Texas Tech still managed to lead 31-29 at the half after successfully harassing the high-scoring Sooners for 20 minutes.

"We just want to be a team that embraces defense," Beard said. "It's something that we believe in. We think you've got to be a team that defends. We start in the recruiting process."

Another of the Red Raiders' strengths has been depth -- they have liberally distributed minutes among a 10-man rotation. That could be limited against West Virginia, though, as forward Zach Smith missed Tuesday's game with a left ankle sprain and forward Justin Gray was limited with tightness in his knee. Beard said both players are being evaluated on a day-to-day basis.

Beard has been adamant about Texas Tech increasing its home-court advantage through crowd support. The Red Raiders have drawn more than 12,000 fans for each of their two home games in Big 12 play and expect another big gathering against No. 2 West Virginia.

However, the Texas Tech coach was careful not to place too much emphasis on the result versus the Mountaineers.

"I told the guys yesterday, 'This isn't about winning the game Saturday,'" Beard said. "'This isn't a must win. You're in an 18-round fight. What's must is that we play well and we give ourselves a chance to win.'"
