Defense prevails in Texas Tech win over MSU

From "The Kick Six" against Alabama, nearly beating Florida State and Jameis Winston in the 2014 BCS National Championship, then knocking off both Georgia and Alabama when they both were ranked No. 1 in 2017.

They're going to make Texas Tech wish they were in any other location on the planet rather than in a stadium in Minneapolis against the Spartans. Matt Mooney matched his season-high of 22 points to lead the Red Raiders to victory. However, they had nine losses on the season and even after winning the SEC Tournament they only earned a #5 seed in the tournament.

If it does, Michigan State needs to follow the game plan to perfection.

Before Guy went 3-of-3 at the line in the last second of the game, Virginia had gone just 3-of-9 on its free throws.

Under these circumstances, it was too much to overcome, and now Texas Tech and its vagabond coach, Chris Beard, are playing in Monday's final against Virginia. At one point, over a two minute stretch late in the first half, eight shots went up. He finished the season averaging 18.8 points and 7.4 assists per game.

Guy's shot fell short, but the foul call sent the 81.8 percent free-throw shooter to the line for three shots with 0.6 seconds left and Auburn holding onto a two-point lead.

An earlier Guy three with six seconds left brought Virginia back within one. Harper made the first of two, but missed the second and Auburn clung to a 62-60 lead with 5.4 seconds left. "Oh boy", Tony Bennett said after the game.


It is no secret that Auburn is widely considered a football school who last won a national championship in 2010 when Cam Newton was their quarterback.

Doughty led Auburn with 13 and Brown had 12 for Auburn, which almost beat Virginia at its own game - with tough defense and big shots in the halfcourt.

Salt, a senior, was restricted by two first half fouls, and held to no points and two rebounds, but did make an impact with his physical presence, setting screens on offence.

"NCAA needs to get some new refs", Auburn guard Bryce Brown said as the team headed to the locker room.

Jerome, however, contended that the calls balanced out. The Tigers had a great run, but it will end tonight.

"They missed some calls and they made some calls, but like I said, that's why they're reffing the Final Four because they're the best of the best". On one of them, it looked as if Ty Jerome might have double-dribbled into a decisive turnover.
