Covered the 49ers, Raiders and Warriors for the San Jose Mercury News.

Hedging with the spread does provide the very small chance that UVA wins by one point, meaning there's a tiny middle in which someone hedging can win bracket pools with a Cavs victory, and also win the bet on Texas Tech at +1.5.

Hunter had made just one of eight shots in the first half.

And here he is cheering on the Red Raiders with a amusing gesture during the contest.

The Texas Tech men's basketball team took a drastic step of banning smartphones to maintain focus during its surprise run to the NCAA tournament's championship on Monday, according to a report.

The nation's best defense couldn't afford to give up a 3, but Jerome skipped a pass to Hunter, who was open on the wing - and spotted up and drained it. Culver missed a 3 with Guy in his face with a second left, and we were headed to overtime.

But Texas Tech momentarily lost Virginia's De'Andre Hunter, who with plenty of space and time swished a corner three-pointer with 13 seconds remaining in regulation. "I don't know of anything else that would allow these guys to handle this situation, to have a perspective and a poise and a resiliency unless they went through something that hard". "I took my time, and those reps I do shooting in practice, it's just off right now". It was on line. Coach Tony Bennett and his program now have their first national title in school history, and I can't think of anybody more deserving.

On Monday, Francis had 17 points off the bench to lead Texas Tech.

For many social media users, London's message reopened the wounds left by Hussle's death . On Monday, a crowd gathered for a vigil outside Hussle's clothing store.

But Beard showed if you hand him Lincoln Logs he will construct you a mansion and if you give him Legos he will erect a bridge.

"That can only mature you", Bennett said of last year's loss. "But, no, we were trying to get him the ball".

First, when the Cavaliers, a 1 seed again, fell behind by 14 early to No. 16 Gardner-Webb in what seemed like a repeat of the nightmare from the year before.

Texas Tech could become the first team since CT in 1999 to win a title the same year of its first Final Four. He finished 8 for 16 after an 0-for-7 start.

In the biggest turnaround by a team, not just in college basketball, but in all sports in recent memory, Virginia was a team of destiny.

Some guys run into history, Hunter stood and shot his way there. "Not a lot of people get along like we do, so to share this moment with them is unbelievable".

Leave it to a piece of food to crash the national championship game. Hunter tied the game at 68 sending the game to overtime.
