Guy writes flawless ending in Virginia's title-clinching win

Virginia's De'Andre Hunter left and Ty Jerome celebrate in front of Auburn guard Bryce Brown at the end of a semifinal round game in the Final Four NCAA college basketball tournament Saturday

For Cavaliers junior Kyle Guy, who was named most outstanding player and had 24 points, he believed "this is how this it was supposed to end", he told Westwood One.

The Virginia Cavaliers won their first NCAA title fending off Texas Tech in an 85-77 overtime victory at the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis on Monday.

De'Andre Hunter made a layup with 27 seconds left to give Virginia a five-point lead and two foul shots with 13 seconds left to put away the game. Ty Jerome added 16 points and eight assists. Sure, Virginia's stifling defense impacted this line, but for one last game before the NBA, it marked a disappointing night on college basketball's biggest stage. "So he's just been great all year for us and the other teams".

Some people brought up Duke and North Carolina, but even those two schools don't compare to Michigan and Michigan State in the last two years.

The teams matched a championship game record with 21 combined 3-pointers. Virginia, which ranks fifth in the country in adjusted.

"De'Andre usually lets it come, and that - I think he grew up in a way in this tournament in the second half of the Auburn game, and definitely - and he was getting his shots".

The NCAA basketball championship game always delivers - and today's finale between Virginia and Texas Tech was no exception. Total new team one year, and to get here, it took a lot of guts. "I didn't move, really". The college game has a 30-second clock, but these units would have been comfortable with 90-second clocks. Guy's free throws in the final second beat Auburn in the Final Four. The observation in Minneapolis was "the road ends here". More than 12 minutes into the first half, the score was just 19-19. Guy made three foul shots with 0.6 seconds left, and Virginia advanced.

"I was aggressive in the first half, but my shots just weren't falling", Hunter who scored 17 of his points after halftime, said.

Texas Tech trailed by two points with 1:40 remaining in overtime when guard Davide Moretti chased a loose ball down court. After trading free throws, Virginia led 65-61.

"The game was everything we thought it would be", Beard said. One of the offers he declined came from former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant, who saw a $50,000 offer for the so-called futures ticket come up short.

It went right down to the wire from there - and only the contentious referee decision in overtime and Virginia's cool heads down the stretch proved to be the difference. Beard choked back tears in his post-game press conference and said, "But this is life".

Yet while Virginia's offense has been more efficient in the tournament, the Red Raiders' defense has been tougher statistically.

Virginia had two close calls to reach its first title game.

Tech did not get it.
