Virginia-Texas Tech: Preview, stats
Virginia was the only No. 1 seed to make it to Minneapolis for the Final Four. The Cavaliers won the South Region. Texas Tech was the No. 3 seed from the West Region and the second-lowest seed to reach the Final Four — only No. 5 Auburn was lower.
In the semifinals, Virginia beat Auburn in a thriller thanks to three free throws from Kyle Guy with 0.6 seconds remaining, 63-62. In the second Final Four game, Texas Tech's defense dominated in a 61-51 win against No. 2 Michigan State.
Three of the four Final Four teams have never won a national title. Now two of them will play for the crown on Monday. It's also the first time since 1979 both title game teams will be first-time participants. That year, Michigan State and Magic Johnson beat Indiana State and Larry Bird.
