Virginia won the final few seconds of four straight games

Monday's national championship between Virginia and Texas Tech lived up to its billing in the game's early moments

"And I told them, I just want a chance at a title fight one day".

Just as impressively, Hunter shut down Texas Tech star sophomore Jarrett Culver, limiting him to 15 points on 5-of-22 shooting.

However, the consistency that De'Andre Hunter showed during this ACC and NCAA Tournament.

The last time two teams who had never won a championship played in the title game was the famed Michigan State-Indiana State final in 1979, when one of the largest television audiences in American sports history watched Magic Johnson's Spartans beat Larry Bird's undefeated Sycamores. "It's a goal we started out with at the beginning of the season".

Guy scored 24 points including four huge threes. "You can't take that away from me". Unfortunately, he was clearly hobbled and that impacted how the Red Raiders were able to perform on defence at least a little bit.

Making the achievement all the more notable was it came against an opponent ranked first nationally in defensive efficiency. "I was aggressive in the first half, I believe, but my shots just weren't falling, and I just tried to do the same thing in the second half, and my shots were falling". "There is a lot of emotion in the locker room right now, but I am just so proud to be their coach".

WrestleMania 35: Becky Lynch achieves dream at WrestleMania 35
As we reported in our WrestleMania off-camera notes , transportation was a big issue at WrestleMania 35 as people left the event. Late last night, Becky Lynch took down title-holding rivals Ronda Rousey and Charlotte Flair in WWE's historic event.

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.

"Everybody counted us out all year", said senior forward Tariq Owens, who started despite a painful ankle sprain.

Just having an opportunity to play in the NCAA tournament, however, became increasingly important to Hunter following an offseason shackled with the disappointment of having lost in a historic upset the previous year.

Someone flung a tortilla onto the court during the national championship in Minneapolis on Monday night, and apparently it's not the first time an incident like this has gone down. With 14:40 left in the first half, Tech led 3-2. A year after a humiliating tournament exit against 16-seed UMBC - followed by death threats and his open discussion of battles with anxiety - Guy was the Final Four's most outstanding player for a Virginia team that finally had the title many said it couldn't win with its conservative offense and pace of play.

But this night he's certain to remember regardless for the rest of his life. Head coach Chris Beard will be putting his team full of defensive stalwarts and talented sharpshooters against an equally-skilled defensive and shooting team from the University of Virginia. "We achieved our dream".
