Why Michigan State wins National Championship ... and why they won't — March Madness

A portion of the rook is darkened with curtains as U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis prepares for the NCAA college basketball Final Four Tuesday

Lubbock Police responded with tear gas to disperse the crowd.

Virginia's redemption tour isn't finished yet. "We did something that nobody [at Texas Tech] has done before". What did you think? As of right now, it still hasn't sunk in that we're going to the championship.

The Cavaliers will face No. 3 seed Texas Tech, a bit of a surprise finalist. That's why they're reffing the Final Four.

"Why not us?" Texas Tech head coach Chris Beard said. This whole year we've been playing off ball screens. "I'll put on my big-boy trousers and say, 'Yeah, I've been here eight times and won one, '" Izzo said, "but I'll keep knocking on the door". We're a good team. "I guess somewhere there's a compliment to us that (Beard) kind of believes in the same philosophy which I think is true in any sport".

Texas Tech will now play Virginia, Monday at 9:20 p.m. on CBS.

Auburn had rallied from being down, 57-47, during the second half.

The Spartans stayed in the game at the free-throw line.

J.D. Collins, the NCAA's national coordinator of officiating, gave a statement regarding the foul.

It's the result of a play that will be long discussed, with official James Breeding whistling Samir Doughty for a bump on Guy's desperation 3-point shot with the No. 1 seed Virginia facing elimination before the final. "The basic components of the principle of verticality are: "the defender may not 'belly up" or use the lower part of the body or arms to cause contact outside the vertical plane or inside the opponent's vertical plane".

Fans were furious that the call, which would have given Auburn possession for the final crucial moments of the game had been missed - one of several missed calls during the match.

Ty Jerome led the Cavaliers with 21 points, nine rebounds and six assists. Guy had 15, while De'Andre Hunter had 14 for Virginia. Matt McQuaid followed with 12 points and Aaron Henry added 11. On top of that, they came out of halftime and built a double-digit lead over Tom Izzo's team.

Trump picks Herman Cain for Fed as new Powell counterweight, sources say

Trump touts rising US border ‘wall,’ proposes economic penalty on Mexico
Trump, during Friday's roundtable on the border, called his one-year warning on a southern USA border closure "fake news". US Attorney General William Barr said the president's emergency declaration was legal.

Adam Sandler Will Host "SNL" For the First Time
That's all going to change next month when Sandler hosts SNL for the first time on May 4th (with musical guest Shawn Mendes). The comedian will return to the show that made him famous for his first hosting gig, Variety reported.

The toughest test of his career might be up next: The Red Raiders are one of college basketball's best defensive teams.

As a result, Michigan State had its worst offensive performance of the season, by far.

After reaching the Elite Eight for the first time in program history in 2018, Texas Tech will seek to go all the way this season.

"Cassius has done enough to set himself in that same footprint with those guys", Izzo said. "I know it was insane out there".

"It was great", redshirt senior Norense Odiase said, per ESPN. The Big Ten player of the year wound up with 16 points but he needed 16 shots to get there.

"It's been a heck of a journey", Mooney said. But I'll get a chance to look at that myself, and I'll judge it myself. I knew they called a foul.

It was in Salt Lake City where Auburn fouled a 3-point shooter for New Mexico State while protecting a slim lead with 1.1 seconds left. Chris Beard and company took down Tom Izzo and the Michigan State Spartans in the Final Four on Saturday night, riding a enormous night from Matt Mooney and the nation's stingiest defense to a 61-51 victory.

These are the reasons why the Michigan State Spartans could win the title...and why they won't.

This year's NCAA men's Final Four has a bit of a different feel to it. Despite the absence of the blue bloods like Duke, UNC, and Kentucky, the ratings show that fans were simply glued to the action.

Until Saturday, Auburn and Texas Tech had never been in a Final Four. Virginia hasn't been there since 1984. You know, we take pride in overpreparing. "We weren't supposed to be here".
