Hunter, who scored 22 of his game-high 27 points after halftime and made a crucial 3-pointer in the final minute of regulation to tie the game, knocked down another 3-pointer with 2:09 left in overtime to put the Cavaliers ahead 75-73 - a lead it wouldn't relinquish. Their patience was rewarded on Monday when they defeated Texas Tech in the National Title game in overtime by a score of 85-77.
The team then went on to face No. 12 seed OR in the Sweet 16, winning the game 53-49, before triumphing over No. 3 seed Purdue in an Elite Eight game that ended in an 80-75 overtime victory. Virginia squandered a 10-point lead down the stretch, Auburn took a 61-57 lead with 17 seconds left and the Cavs looked cooked.
"This is real life; we'll bounce back", Tech coach Chris Beard said. Not only was it the first basketball title in school history, and the first for any Division One program in the Commonwealth. "He's a great ambassador for Tech athletics, not only us, but other teams". And just before the buzzer sounded, Guy launched a 3-point shot from the corner, was obviously fouled and the officials didn't miss that call.
Each of Virginia's 34 wins leading to the final, and each of its scant three losses, was punctuated by the reminder that only the end result would serve as the ultimate report card on whether the Cavs could truly shed the baggage of a year ago. Ben Pershing of National Journal said on Twitter, "I see lots of people complaining about the replay review, but the original call was wrong and the reversal was correct". We're down 10 (a few weeks ago) - same position as past year - and we didn't panic. A very high-level vacancy somewhere will lead to speculation over whether Beard will take the job, every time and until further notice.
An assistant for the Red Raiders under Bob Knight and Pat Knight from 2001 to 2011, Beard has been a head coach in Division I - the highest level in the NCAA - for four years.
Korea's ICT Minister Celebrates Launch of World's First 5G Services
South Korea's top telecom companies SK Telecom, KT and LG U plus launched 5G services at 11 pm local time on Wednesday. On Wednesday, SK Telecom showed off K-pop stars and an Olympic gold medallist as its first 5G customers.
"It hasn't set in yet", Guy said in the locker room. Ty Jerome led the Cavaliers with 21 points on 8-of-16 shooting including 4-of-9 from 3-point range plus 1-of-3 at the free throw line.
"I was still in disbelief". "I just tried to do the same thing in the second half and my shots started falling".
And, in April. The insane thing is that that the finale follow-up against Auburn was just as wild maybe even moreso.
Tech guard Matt Mooney said he should have come up bigger on Virginia's final possession. Virginia then went on an 11-0 run.
"I know he's a young man of faith and he has great confidence in himself, and he's honest, and he's just got it", Bennett said of Guy. Kansas' Mario Chalmers left seconds on the clock when his tree tied the 2008 title game against Memphis, and the Jayhawks went on to win in the extra period.
Man United target Varane considering Real Madrid future
We had a tough time in the middle of the season where we had to fight. "There will be time later". Real Madrid are set for a summer overhaul under Zidane after he returned to the club last month.
According to Viva The Matadors, the act of tossing tortillas onto courts and fields is actually a Texas Tech tradition, so many Texas Tech fans were not the least bit surprised. "To battle through everything we did and come out on top is a fantastic feeling", said Guy. "You talk about a team of destiny ..."
Texas Tech is in the Final Four national championship game, and it's big deal for just about everyone attending or that has attended Texas Tech.
Perhaps it shouldn't be surprising that two spectacular defensive teams locked each other down in the early stages of the night, but it was as ugly as the second half was pretty.
Texas Tech also started off the tournament with a pair of big wins, besting No. 14 seed Northern Kentucky in the first round, and then beating No 6 seed Buffalo by 20 points in the second round.
