Things Get Lit After Texas Tech Basketball Beats West Virginia [Watch]
Texas Tech's narrow 62-59 win over West Virginia fueled a wild dance party in the locker room.
The post-game mood was just as fired up as the dance moves, with several men's basketball players getting in on the fun. Even head coach Chris Beard jumped in and busted a move. It's an interesting dance, for sure. Let's call it The #4to1 Shuffle.
But some folks out in Morgantown were a little salty when the dust settled at the penalty-heavy game.
One outlet went so far as to blame the Mountaineers' loss in the Big 12 opener on a single no-call, writing: "If it had happened in front of 50,000 people in Mountaineer Field instead of 10,538 in the Coliseum, it would have been flagged for flagrant targeting, but instead this whistle happy crew opted for a no call."
And West Virginia Head Coach Bob Huggins didn't seem to disagree.
"When you're up in the air and run over a guy -- and the guy is stationary -- when you leave the ground and jump forward it's generally a charge," Huggins said in the post-game press conference. "But I have not seen the tape and I didn't have near the look that the officials had."
KKAM sports writer Rob Breaux, however, delivered two nuggets of truth that cannot be denied after the Texas Tech-West Virginia showdown.
Texas Tech moved to 12-1 for the season with the win, with their sole loss in 2018 to date to Duke at Madison Square Garden.
