Following the season-ending loss, Edwards paid a visit to the Texas Tech locker room to congratulate the team and shake hands with opposing players of whom just ended his season. The Wildcats are now 15-3 SU and 13-5 ATS this season against teams that made the NCAA tournament. All year, the Wildcats have been a time that lives or dies by how well they shoot from beyond the arc, so to see them only convert 4-of-24 shots from 3-point range against the Red Raiders was extremely concerning. Tech was the more aggressive team and attacked the rim all night earning trips to the line.
And yet they have won six straight tournament games (Big East and NCAA) by an average of 17.7 points. Carsen Edwards scored 30 points for the Boilers in the defeat. "We don't want it to end", said Keenan Evans (16 points), who helped to seal a 78-65 win over Purdue in an East Regional semifinal at TD Garden.
It seems when Kennan Evans is on, so is Texas Tech. Defensively, Texas Tech is holding their opponents to an average of 64.6 ppg on 40.3% shooting from the field. And after three pulsating tournament victories, their confidence should be soaring. As a result, he was just 1-7 from the field. "It's insane to say, but I kind of felt like it was just business as usual".
The Red Raiders defeated Stephen F. Austin and Florida to get to Boston. The over/under for total points scored is 144.5, 71% have picked the over. "As you saw (Friday) night with (Sagaba) Konate, they really protect the floor, but a lot of guys they had last night with (Wesley) Harris and (Lamont) West, they're the same with Texas Tech that brings a lot of athleticism as well".
For the most part, the Villanova Wildcats have been fortunate enough to win each of their first three games of the 2018 NCAA Tournament prior to Sunday by double-digits, although their Sweet 16 battle with the West Virginia Mountaineers gave them a bit of a scare.
Villanova grabbed a season-high 20 offensive rebounds on Sunday, none more emphatic that Donte DiVincenzo's tip-dunk in the second half. Overall, Tech had a 34-30 advantage on the boards but that advantage felt more lopsided. They weren't stunned that they maintained a lead on Purdue despite a quiet night from Evans, one of the best guards in the nation. The 7-foot-3 center was the focus of the broadcast merely because of his GQ haircut and propensity for running his fingers through his flowing mane. Those are the rules for redshirt players: can not be on the bench, certainly can not be on the court (a restriction that apparently applies even after the final buzzer). With 18 points and eight rebounds, Villanova's Omari Spellman had a solid performance.

He's been great in the role, except last week when he mistakenly left the hat in his Ford F-150 as he scrambled to get ready for the team's early morning flight to Dallas. That's great, the coach and players said, except that they have been around for only a few years. That proved not to be the case. Villanova doesn't shoot more threes than anyone in college basketball, they just shoot more threes than anyone in college basketball that was actually good this year. After halftime, Zach Smith was a key in helping Tech protect its lead with put-back buckets and strong finishes around the rim. After breaking his right elbow in the first-round game against Cal State-Fullerton, he tried to convince Painter he could play; the Purdue engineering department even pitched in, designing a special brace for his right arm.
