Halftime update: tough road ahead

Texas Tech and Virginia have proven why they’re the best defensive teams in the country.

NCAA Basketball: Final Four-National Championship-Virginia vs Texas Tech Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY Sports

The Texas Tech Red Raiders and Virginia Cavaliers are both showing off their defensive prowess and it’s easy to see why they’re in this national title game.

Jarrett Culver has struggled so far with only three points and two rebounds. Davide Moretti has picked up the slack with eight points of his own. Tech defense has been impenetrable as the Red Raiders has been tough forcing Virginia to only 42% shooting but simply can’t find a basket as Tech is shooting only 33% themselves.

Leading the way for Virginia is Kyle Guy with 10 points and Ty Jerome with eight of his own. Tech will try to limit them and others even more in the second half.

20 more minutes till immortality for one of these two teams.
