Michigan State to take on Texas Tech in Final Four

Williamson went for 24 points and 14 rebounds against Michigan State in the Elite Eight last weekend. We've seen how overtime can ruin a total in recent weeks.

Michigan State's defense isn't bad, either.

Bruce Pearl and Auburn were the first team on the court at U.S. Bank Stadium on Thursday, and the Tigers proved to themselves that 3-pointers count the same even in a football stadium. The sophomore is the team's third-leading scorer and top rebounder.

To say Purifoy has had a rocky road to the Final Four would be an understatement.

Play ran very smoothly through the final four minutes of the game, too, never giving officials a chance to stop the game for the timeout. Virginia made eight straight stops against the Tigers in the opening minutes of the last half.

Virginia has been a bit of a slow starter in the NCAA Tournament.

The Red Raiders' stellar defense worked much better on weaker foes as their other three games all went under 137.5. In other words, he's hot right now after not making a three in either of his first two NCAA Tournament games.

Losing their star big man at a crucial part of the season was hard, and many expected Auburn to lose to a bigger Kentucky team.

Auburn leads the nation with 22 points off turnovers per game - causing turnovers on almost 25 percent of opponent possessions - but Virginia is second nationally in offensive efficiency and rarely reaches double-digit turnovers.

The Chiefs quarterback and reigning NFL MVP plans to watch the Red Raiders play the Spartans in the Final Four on Saturday night. But the foundation remains the same: plenty of redshirting, a deliberate pace on offense, the pack line on defense, recruiting players who fit the program - a throwback, in so many ways.

House oversight to issue subpoenas in census, security clearance probes
Jordan knocked down other claims used to justify the security clearance investigation, which he called a "reckless decision". The controversy involves a long-serving White House bureaucrat named Tricia Newbold . "I just don't know".

What a difference a year makes.

A year after becoming the first No. 1 seed to lose to 16, these top-seeded Cavaliers now look like destiny's team.

The Cavaliers avoided a repeat of their 2018 NCAA Tournament loss by beating Gardner-Webb 71-56. It'd faced devastation in injury to its best player. Virginia seems to be the team of destiny this season, especially with heavy favorite Duke being knocked out already. A team spokesman said that group isn't planning on staying in Minneapolis if the Spartans advance to Monday's national championship.

Cross has a Bachelor's degree in Mass Communications from Appalachian State University and a Master's in English and Education from Radford University in Virginia. Texas Tech (30-6) has allowed more than 70 points only five times this season and not at all in the tournament.

Opposite Izzo is the most rookie of the group, Chris Beard. Along with an National Basketball Association top-10 projected pick, sophomore guard Jarrett Culver, the Red Raiders are made for March Madness.

Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry surprised the Tigers - and another Under Armour-sponsored school, Texas Tech - with pairs of his new sneakers for their Final Four appearance on Saturday night. The Raiders defeated Northern Kentucky, Buffalo, and MI by at least 15 points. It also follows a 2018 season that saw the Red Raiders reach the Elite Eight for the first time. Culver had 22 points in that beat down, and he's led the team in scoring every game this tournament. They shot 39.1 percent from three while holding the Zags to only 26.9 percent, showing why they're one of the best defensive teams in the country.

Michigan State is playing in the Final Four and has support on hand from plenty of familiar faces. That season, the Spartans lost to eventual National Champion Duke 81-61. "There are Spartans all over the country".
