UNDATED (AP) — After a break last weekend for the SEC-Big 12, the league dives into the second half of its schedule over the course of the next week with the league title still up for grabs. Texas Tech gained some serious confidence with a tough win over No. 12 West Virginia earlier in the week. Now, coach Chris Beard's crew will try to carry it forward when the Red Raiders visit Allen Fieldhouse on Saturday. The third-ranked Jayhawks have won five straight since losing to top-ranked Baylor at the Phog.
