Virginia vs Texas Tech: The NCAA men’s basketball final on Monday night looks like a close contest; some people are picking Virginia, while others like Texas Tech. The national title game Monday night pits Virginia (34-3), the standard-bearer in lockdown basketball, against the new kids on the defensive block, the Texas Tech Red Raiders (31-6).
A new champion will be crowned Monday night as both Virginia and Texas Tech are looking for the first national championship in school history. This is a battle between two of the top defenses in the country. Virginia sports the No. 1 scoring defense in the country, while Texas Tech ranks third.
Both teams had thrilling victories in the Final Four. No. 1 seed Virginia trailed four points with 10 seconds left before Kyle Guy scored six points, including three free throws with 0.6 seconds left, to defeat No. 5 seed Auburn 63-62. No. 3 seed Texas Texas beat No. 2 seed Michigan State 61-51, but it was a one-point game with two-and-a-half minutes remaining. Jarrett Culver, the team’s leading scorer this season, struggled for much of the game, but scored seven of his 10 points down the stretch. The Red Raiders finished the game on a 9-0 run.
Virginia and Texas Tech both have ridden their defensive prowess to the title game, allowing an average of 58.6 and 55.8 points per tournament game leading into this matchup.
That said, it’s been a little tougher for Virginia to make it this far: The Cavs needed tremendous play and late-game heroics from the likes of Kihei Clark, Kyle Guy and Mamadi Diakite to advance past Purdue and Auburn. Texas Tech, meanwhile, has only allowed more than 60 points once in this tournament — giving up 69 to Gonzaga, the top-ranked scoring team in the country — and never winning by fewer than three possessions.
