Tech reaches first Final Four

Tech reaches first Final Four

While the Red Raiders were locking down Michigan State on one end, the graduate transfer shooting guard was raining in 3s on the other, lifting Tech one win away from the title Saturday night with a 61-51 victory over the Spartans in the Final Four.

"These are moments that every basketball player dreams of, hitting the games-winning shot or free throws or whatever", Guy said. Michigan State also won the national championship in 1979.

Late in the first half, Mahomes was shown on the video board during a timeout and the Texas Tech fans in the building let out a big cheer.

The Blue Devils found themselves on defense with a lead of two points or less in their victories in the ACC Championship over North Carolina, the tournament's second round over UCF and their Sweet 16 matchup over Virginia Tech. Texas Tech had allowed more than 70 points only five times this season and not at all in the tournament.

Tech received a 3 seed in the NCAA Tournament and has made a run for the ages to the Final Four.

Texas Tech has put together a very strong run to make its first Final Four. He hit all three free throws, giving the Cavaliers the 63-62 win.

"I think preparation", Beard said. They are averaging 10.8 turnovers in the last four games. They will need 'great, ' but will not get it. Take Texas Tech to win (+142) over Michigan State (-162).

Doughty had 13 points for Auburn, while Bryce Brown and Jared Harper had 12 and 11 points, respectively.

A school these days better known for football - NFL MVP and former Texas Tech quarterback Patrick Mahomes was in attendance on Saturday - Texas Tech and its Red Raiders have made a swift ascension.

With Texas Tech leading by four and just over one minute remaining, Culver got Michigan State defensive ace Matt McQuaid on his heels, pulled up and buried a top-of-the-key 3-pointer.

Michigan State was the team that ultimately dethroned a lineup that resurfaced fundamental questions of competitiveness in college basketball throughout the season with their NBA firepower.

"There's certain programs I could have gone to that have the same role I had at South Dakota; they needed a scorer and I could just come in and do my thing", he said. This was Virginia's third Final Four appearance and first since 1984.

Michigan State is coming off of an exciting one-point win over the top-seeded Duke Blue Devils on March 31. As proof that the win over MI wasn't a fluke, they handled Gonzaga's offensive machine in the Elite Eight, 75-69, and earned a trip to their first Final Four.

Most tellingly, it stymied Big Ten player of the year Cassius Winston. Chris Beard's stock has been rising as fast as any other coach in America, and he had the Red Raiders in the Elite Eight a year ago.

While there was no true Cinderella in this year's Final Four, the closest one was Auburn (30-10).
