Texas Tech could become the first team since CT in 1999 to win a title the same year of its first Final Four. "Being down 14 against Gardner-Webb, and you did not panic in the moment, and you fought, and you found a way out". They showed their heart in defeat, which makes for a bittersweet feeling at the end of the night-but the reason we care about sports isn't because a single championship validates our existence; it's because we can use what happens during the game as a metaphor for the things we care about.
Hedging with the spread does provide the very small chance that UVA wins by one point, meaning there's a tiny middle in which someone hedging can win bracket pools with a Cavs victory, and also win the bet on Texas Tech at +1.5.
It's why Guy has his ideal ending a year after a humiliating loss, with a piece of clipped net stuck in his hat and standing as most outstanding player of the Final Four.
In that post-game locker room, there were tears and long faces, but in time, the Wolverines were able to get perspective on what they had accomplished. "Just staying aggressive, that's it". "He scored a career high tonight and what a night to have it". The teams went back and forth in the closing minutes of regulation, before the Red Raiders took a 68-65 lead with 22 seconds remaining on a pair of free throws by Norense Odiase. Down 2 with 1.5 seconds left, the Cavaliers got the ball to Guy, who was fouled by Auburn's Samir Doughty on a 3-point attempt.

The Red Raiders are 4-0 ATS in their last four Monday games. The Red Raiders have lost just one game since the ban was instituted, according to the report.
Texas Tech coach Chris Beard tried to switch so that Hunter would have to guard someone else and give Culver more open looks, but it didn't really work. He sank all three free throws to send the Cavaliers to the title game.
Both players are projected by many draft analysts to be possible top-10 selections in the June draft if they leave their respective schools early. "I just stayed aggressive and the shots started dropping". Will Texas Tech complete its dominant run in the NCAA Tournament by hoisting the trophy after tonight's national championship game?
That raised questions of whether replay was being used for what was arguably its originally intended function - to correct obvious errors in officiating with conclusive imagery - and whether it was fair, in this case, to the Red Raiders.
On Monday, Francis had 17 points off the bench to lead Texas Tech.
U.Va. would regain momentum before halftime. Jarrett Culver added 10 points along with five boards and two assists. Basketball's a game that runs. "You're never alone in the hills and the valleys we faced that in the past year".
"This is just everything you dream as a kid". I'm not even thinking about UMBC right now.
