Texas Tech guard Keenan Evans nailed a game-winning 18-footer in the final seconds of overtime. Evans smoothly got downhill with a couple of moves, and confidently put down points 37 and 38 to down Texas, 73-71 in Lubbock. 

Dominant from the tip, Evans scored a career-high 38 points, over half his No. 10 Tech's point total.

In that moment, I wanted to be the man for our team. [Coach Beard] always on me about, `Don't be afraid of the moment. Go be the man.'

Dominant from the tip, Evans scored a career-high 38 points, over half his No. 10 Tech's point total. He shot 9-of-13 and 18-of-20 from the line, for the Red Raiders (18-4, 6-3 Big 12.) No other Tech player had double-digit points.

Texas continues to struggle mightily, sliding to 14-8 (4-5 Big 12.) Future lottery pick Mo Bamba was still dominant, posting 12 points, ten rebounds, seven blocks.
