During the first half, the two teams exchanged both scoring runs and droughts and runs, but it was West Virginia who would end the first half on an 8-2 run which included back-to-back three pointers and a fadeaway shot from senior guard Jevon Carter which gave the Mountaineers a 38-31 halftime lead.
But at least West Virginia (15-1, 4-0 Big 12) can take comfort in having one of its top assets back in the lineup.
With the win, Texas Tech improved to 4-1 in Big 12 play and handed the Mountaineers their first loss since November 10, and their first in Big 12 play in the process.
West Virginia: Ahmad's impact was immediate after coming off the bench early in the first half.
Francis, a junior transfer from Florida whose only previous double-digit game was 10 in a 34-point blowout over Savannah State, hit two go-ahead jumpers in the closing minutes.
NO. 5 WICHITA ST. 72, TULSA 69: Landry Shamet and backcourt mate Conner Frankamp scored 16 each as the visiting Shockers (14-2, 5-0 AAC) survived a scare. Smith had nine points and eight rebounds.
Xavier 92, Creighton 70: Trevon Bluiett emerged from his shooting slump with 24 points, Kaiser Gates responded from losing his starting spot by scoring 16, and No. 10 Xavier recovered from back-to-back road losses by routing No. 25 Creighton. Here's the list: at No. 8 Texas Tech, at home versus No. 12 Kansas and Texas, at No. 16 TCU and at home against No. 21 Kentucky.
Villanova 78, St. John's 71: Donte DiVincenzo hit six 3-pointers and scored 25 points to help No. 1 Villanova silence a rowdy NY crowd and hold off upset-minded St. John's at Madison Square Garden.
Carter led the Mountaineers with 28 points on 10-of-22 shooting, his most points since scoring 29 against Missouri on November 26.

No. 13 Seton Hall 74, Georgetown 61: Desi Rodriguez and Myles Powell each scored 19 points to lead Seton Hall (15-3, 4-1 Big East).
"They beat us off the dribble and we didn't guard the ball-screen", said West Virginia coach Bob Huggins, whose team had reeled off 15 consecutive wins.
Clemson 72, Miami 63: Donte Grantham had 18 points, including four 3-pointers, and Mark Donnal had 12 points, including two critical second-half 3s, as No. 19 Clemson outlasted 18th-ranked Miami. Luke Maye had 17 points and 11 rebounds for the Tar Heels (14-4, 3-2). He received a quick hook with 16 minutes left in the game after heaving up a 20-footer when he found himself trapped with the ball at the top of the key.
The biggest lead for the Frogs, who had never won in Morgantown, was when they scored the first three points in overtime.
Allonzo Trier scored 25 points and Deandre Ayton added 24 for Arizona.
Naomi Davenport and Ray had 17 points each for the Mountaineers, Teana Muldrow had 16 and Kristina King had 12 with 10 rebounds. The story line of the game was poor free throw shooting by the Mountaineers (54.2%).
Making his expected first appearance of the season will be 6-foot-8 junior Esa Ahmad, the team's second- leading scorer a year ago. Jaylen Nowell led Washington (13-5, 3-2) with 20 points.
(13.8), West (12.9), James Bolden 10.4 and Teddy Allen (9.1) per game.
