With a No. 7 ranking and a 20-4 record, Texas Tech already has ensured history will look favorably upon this season, and Evans, who ranks second in the Big 12 in scoring (18.6) behind Young, has a lot to do with it.
K-State will have a bye before returning to action next weekend. The Wildcats were outscored by 20 points over the next two quarters. He has now led the team in scoring six times in the last seven games, including five consecutive games. The shifty 5-foot-4-inch guard, who'd been contained to just four points in the first half, finally broke free in the third quarter.
The Wildcats wasted no time to get out on the seventh-ranked Red Raiders, as sophomore forward Xavier Sneed collected a pass from junior guard Barry Brown Jr., on the first possession and buried a 3-pointer from the corner.
Tech struggled early on in the first half, as they started the game trailing 7-0 following a Wildcat run to kick off the half.
"We got a little undisciplined", Texas head coach Karen Aston said.
K-State shot 7 of 9 in the opening period, but were plagued by 10 turnovers.
Evans and Texas Tech would respond quickly with a counter of its own.
The NCAA Selection Committee released their Tournament Bracket Preview putting the Red Raiders as the No. 3 team in the East Region. Then she made a basket from just inside the 3-point line as the first half ended to give Texas a 39-30 lead.
Still, West Virginia remains just a game behind both Kansas and Texas Tech in the Big 12 standings with seven regular-season conference games remaining.
Texas Tech will have two other games at home this season if you don't want to spend as much on tickets.
An afternoon of wacky scored in the Big 12 put K-State within reach of third place.
In the last three minutes of play, Texas Tech would draw the score even at 27-27 to go into the break tied. Wade would lead all scorers with 9 points at the half.
The Red Raiders took control early in the second half.
Trailing 43-32 almost midway through the second half, Sneed was fed a pass from junior guard Kamau Stokes in transition to bring the score to within single-digits.
Not surprisingly, K-State sits in a tie for fourth with Oklahoma.
However, K-State's fouls would get them into trouble in the second half, as Texas Tech entered the bonus almost halfway through the half. Instead, the Red Raiders are now the team to beat.
During the current six-game winning streak, Texas Tech has held opponents to 63.3 points per game. Tech's leading rebounder in the game was Culver, who grabbed eight rebounds in the game, according to Tech Athletics.
