Huggins is also very impressed with Tech's two freshmen, Zhaire Smith and Jarrett Culver, both 6-5. Senior Niem Stevenson is from Dallas and starts at the two, he averages eight points per game this year in just over 20 minutes. Now the Red Raiders find themselves ranked in the top 10 with a chance to regain a share of the conference lead.
