Texas Tech Advances To Final Four For The First Time In Program History


In just three years as head coach, Chris Beard has led the Red Raiders to their first NCAA Tournament Final Four appearance in program history.

West Region No. 3 seed Texas Tech defeated No. 1 Gonzaga 75-69 Saturday evening to advance to the next round.

Despite trailing by two at halftime, Texas Tech kept up the same momentum in the second half. The Red Raiders’ famous lock-down defense came up clutch in the final minutes of the game to shut down Gonzaga and keep a lead.

Sophomore guard Jarrett Culver led the Red Raiders with 19 points.

Texas Tech will now face the winner of the Duke/Michigan State match-up taking place on Sunday.
