Takeaways from Texas Tech's win

Usually, Texas basketball fans hope that their team is the one making the run through the NCAA Tournament field.

If it feels like Virginia's supposed to win Monday night, maybe it's because it is.

"We just go through it and we just playing". He is the straw that stirs the drink for the Spartans and has shown the ability to take over games when needed. After that game, Virginia coach Tony Bennett brought Jerome and Guy to the press conference in Charlotte, a grim and funereal affair, instead of his seniors because he wanted those two to absorb the feeling. That's why they're reffing the Final Four. Virginia hasn't been there since 1984.

Here is what MSU coach Tom Izzo and the Spartans had to say following last night's loss. Sophomore Xavier Tillman rattled in two after Winston connected on four consecutive shots from the stripe, and Michigan Statewhittled a 12-point deficit to five (52-47) with 5:38 remaining. He was named Most Outstanding Player in the East Region after averaging 19 points and 7.8 assists, including a 20-point, 10-assist performance in a win over top-seeded Duke. "It's a great credit to my staff and players that through all they've been through, they have a chance to do that". And much of that production was too little, too late. If they get into a scenario where a couple of players get in foul trouble, they may not have an answer. He's their leading rebounder (nine a game), but, like a lot of big guys, he likes to shoot 3-pointers. When he got the ball back after a insane sequence - which included an uncalled double dribble by the Cavaliers - Guy shot another three-pointer at the buzzer.

Tom Brady Joins Twitter to Announce His Retirement
Boston.com notes that while Brady's post-2019 contract is still in the works, the 41-year-old quarterback is far from retirement . In February, after claiming a record sixth Super Bowl ring, Brady had said he had no intention of retiring.

Texas Tech held Michigan State, a team who many considered worthy of a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament, to 21 first-half points. The thing with Michigan State, though, is that they're as tough and resilient of a team as you'll find.

Despite their tournament success, the Spartans haven't pushed opponents into foul trouble by driving to the basket and picking up fouls.

This is not the first time a network has chose to cut away during a moment of prayer, or religious speech at a sporting event. Smaller disturbances followed a loss to North Carolina in the 2005 Final Four, as well as after the school's football team won the Big Ten championship in 2013.
