  • Michigan State head coach Tom Izzo holds up the net after defeating Duke in an NCAA men's East Regional final college basketball game in Washington Sunday

Texas Tech guard Matt Mooney (13) celebrates after making a three-point basket during the second half against Michigan State in the semifinals of the Final Four NCAA college basketball tournament, Saturday, April 6, 2019, in Minneapolis.

The 'Hoos, a top 10 team in terms of three-point field goal percentage in the country, got hot from deep after not being able to throw a rock in the ocean in the first half. Despite a late game collapse, a foul call that no one will forget anytime soon with less than a second remaining sent Kyle Guy to the charity stripe for three free throws.

Virginia was not yet in the bonus, and Auburn brilliantly used a couple of fouls to whittle time off the clock. Kenny Goins hit a go-ahead 3-pointer to take the lead with 35 seconds left, and the Spartans hung on by 1.

Virginia's Kyle Guy (5) takes a shot as Auburn's Samir Doughty (10) was called for a foul with 0.6 seconds left in the semi-final.

- Dave Skretta reporting from Minneapolis. The offense has been solid for Texas Tech this season, averaging 73.1 a game and are shooting 47.2% from the floor, but they will look to get it done with their defense. Will the Red Raiders be wide-eyed in college basketballs biggest weekend?

Michigan State's Cassius Winston, who netted nine points in the first half, remained scoreless in the second as the Spartans struggled. He finished with 12 points.

"When I got to Auburn (five years ago), even though our athletes may have been recognized as athletes, they didn't wear a lot of basketball gear", Pearl said.

Health officials confirm measles case in Maryland resident | Lexington Herald Leader
The Maryland Department of Health confirmed a measles case in a Maryland resident on Friday. Measles symptoms usually start at around 10 days after contact with an infectious person.

The Wahoos, as they are unofficially known as, made their first trip to the Final Four since 1984 and have so far made the best out of their opportunity.

"I heard [the official] him call it right away", Guy said.

Doughty led Auburn with 13 and Brown had 12 for Auburn, which almost beat Virginia at its own game - with tough defense and big shots in the halfcourt.

That's why he said Izzo's greeting after Saturday's game meant so much to him. Jarrett Culver paced the Red Raiders with 19 points on 5-of-19 shooting including 2-of-8 from 3-point range plus 7-of-8 at the charity stripe.

"I'm upset that I missed it", Owens said. That's because Virginia was the first No. 1 seed to ever lose to a No. 16 seed, bounced in Orlando by UMBC.

Before Guy went 3-of-3 at the line in the last second of the game, Virginia had gone just 3-of-9 on its free throws.
