LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — Davide Moretti flinched as a pass the Texas Tech guard wasn’t expecting glanced off his back and bounced toward Kansas State’s Cartier Diarra.
When Diarra tried to get too fancy with the ensuing breakaway dunk and clanged a windmill attempt off the rim, Moretti made the last-place Wildcats pay at the other end.
Moretti scored 18 points, including a 3-pointer after Diarra’s ill-fated miss when he could have tied the score midway through the second half, and the Red Raiders beat the Wildcats 69-62 on Wednesday night.
