Instant replay helps Virginia beat Texas Tech for national championship

Texas Tech and Virginia meet in the national championship game on Monday

Virginia came into March Madness as the top-ranked team, while Texas Tech ranked third.

History was guaranteed at the NCAA men's basketball championship on Monday, with the Virginia Cavaliers and Texas Tech Red Raiders making their debuts in the national final.

The University of Virginia captured their first United States men's college basketball championship on Monday night, with a 27-point performance from De'Andre Hunter to beat Texas Tech 85-77 in overtime.

Jerome found Guy on a no-look pass for a three to get Virginia's lead to ten, 53-43 with 10:22 to go, but two consecutive layups from Moretti made it a six-point game. I knew that going into this year because of what was going to be coming at us because of that from a basketball standpoint. To pull off the most awe-inspiring moments against Purdue, Auburn and Texas Tech to cut down the nets on the final Monday of the season.

Brandone Francis led Texas with 17 points on a night where five players all reached double-digits in scoring for the the runners-up. When Odiase made two free throws seconds later, Texas Tech had a three-point cushion and 22 seconds to kill to claim its first national title. The sophomore made the game-tying 3 point shot with 12 seconds left in regulation, then made another with just over two minutes left in the extra period to give the Cavs the lead for good. However, guard Kyle Guy - the team's leading scorer - went on to score 6 points, giving the team a 1 point victory against Auburn.

"With a 3-point lead. we're trying to play really sound defense with three objectives: No 3-point shots, no 'and-ones, ' and we've got to secure the defensive rebounds, " Texas Tech coach Chris Beard said.

Should Virginia win Monday night, it will likely go down as one of the biggest turnarounds in college basketball history. Texas Tech beat Texas A&M in that 1992 football game. "We'll bounce back. I'm just so proud of those guys".

Texas Tech outmuscled Michigan State 61-51 in its Final Four game Saturday night, but saw Tariq Owens roll his right ankle in the second half. "'That, I think, has prepared you for this moment to be able to handle the pressure or the intensity of a national championship game.' And these guys stepped up". Then it was settled at the free throw line where the Cavaliers clinched their spot as national champs.

Culver's desperate attempt from the corner was blocked and the game headed to overtime. "I felt like I had an open shot so I shot it".

"He always says never get too high, never get too low", Hunter said of Bennett.

For those still on the fence, it's reasonable to wait a little longer, as KenPom makes this game Virginia -3, so the market could certainly move in that direction and therefore offer a better price on the Red Raiders.
