Texas Tech overcame some frigid shooting to outlast West Virginia 62-59 in tonight's foul-plagued, turnover-marred Big 12 opener at the WVU Coliseum.

The two teams combined to commit 50 fouls and mishandle the basketball 35 times, but the Mountaineers were far more generous by committing 22 turnovers. Those 22 miscues led to 27 of the Red Raiders' 62 points.

"We are very charitable," West Virginia coach Bob Huggins said. "People struggle and we throw them the ball and make it easier for them."
