NCAA: Texas Tech to face Virginia for title

Posted April 08, 2019

Michigan State lost to Texas Tech, 61-51, in the Final Four in Minneapolis Saturday night.

"Those are the greats, definitely, got to be top two", he said. We play in arguably the best league in the country. Among those team, only one remains from the Big 12. We're going to get through this, but you guys need to be up there with me, and we need to go through this, and we need to go through next year together. We didn't get the ball moving like we usually do. They face Virginia on Monday night for the title. A close game, good action, heck, a controversial finish to debate before moving onto the nightcap between Texas Tech and Michigan State. What's more, that duo was also responsible for five of the Red Raiders seven turnovers on the night. "It is", Virginia coach Tony Bennett said.

Texas Tech has just one team sport with a national championship in school history.

"I just didn't think it was a foul", he said. "We need each other". But Virginia's Kyle Guy was fouled by Auburn's Samir Doughty while launching a buzzer-beater attempt with 0.6 seconds remaining.

"These are moments that every basketball player has dreamed of, hitting the game-winning shot or free throws or whatever", Guy said. "It's easy to talk about, and really, really hard to do".

You can bet Izzo will point his team the right direction at the Final Four.

Ty Jerome led the Cavaliers with 21 points, nine rebounds and six assists.

When Chris Beard took over as Texas Tech basketball coach, his first goal was to make his program relevant in the Big 12.

After putting up seven points, four rebounds, three blocks and a steal, Owens' absence was felt.

He finished with 10 points. Mooney, from the far northwest Chicago suburb of Wauconda, is on his third college - he spent his freshman year at Air Force and then attended South Dakota. "And like I said - I trust their decision, man, all the time".

Even the ACC semifinal loss to Florida State can be counted as an unexpected blessing, saving the energy that would have been expended against Duke for the NCAA tournament - and the Cavaliers would need it right away, down 14 to 16-seeded Gardner-Webb in the first round in an eerie poltergeist of Virginia's historic stumble a year earlier. They're now living the dream, playing for a coach they idolized.

If there's a common denominator between the title contenders, defense is the calling card.

CBS has yet to offer an explanation as to why they chose to cut away during Texas Tech's team prayer.

Two street signs and a police van also were damaged. Auburn and Texas Tech are making their first Final Four appearances ever.

"The thing about Virginia was how they could control the pace of the game. The way that they forced us to drive baseline", Tillman said.

And what about the Red Raiders?

"The way that they played help-side defense".
