In a heated overtime game, the University of Virginia Cavaliers beat the Texas Tech Red Raiders, 85-77. The April 8 game marked the first men’s overtime championship game in 11 years.

It was both teams’ first time making it all the way to the final four, and UVA’s first national title. This win follows the major upset from last year’s tournament where #1 seed UVA lost in round one to #16 seed UMBC.

Virginia was leading in the final quarter by 10 points, but Texas caught up and in the final minute took the lead with a layup by Jarrett Culver, #23. De’Andre Hunter, #12, evened the score to 68-68 with a 3-pointer, with 12 seconds left in the game. Virginia made 17 points in overtime, taking an 8-point lead.

Key players included Ty Jerome #11, De’Andre Hunter #12, and Kyle Guy #5, named NCAA Tournament’s most outstanding player, from UVA. Texas Tech’s most valuable players included Jarrett Culver # 23, David Moretti #25, and Matt Mooney #13. University of Virginia now holds the number 1 title in the NCAA, and Texas Tech taking number 2, rising eight spots in postseason rankings.
