Player of the Game: Master of three-pointers

The real MVP in my eyes

NCAA Basketball: Final Four-National Championship-Virginia vs Texas Tech Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

For the first time is school history, the Texas Tech Red Raider men’s basketball team played for the national championship. I’m not sure if you heard this before, and I don’t know if you watched the game tonight, but Brandone Francis was the master of three-pointers tonight, and for this reason he is our player of the game.

The Red Raider fell to the Cavaliers tonight, closing the season at 31-7 overall, but they still finish the season with the most wins in school history and a shared Big 12 regular season title. Through it all, Francis has been an integral part of the Red Raiders successful season, and Monday night was no exception. Francis really pulled through a lot of huge plays during the game on Monday night. All night he was the leading scorer for Texas Tech. He poured in a team-high 17 points off the bench, and was one of only five Red Raiders in double figures. He also hit key threes throughout the night to keep the Red Raiders in the game.

Prior to coming to Texas Tech, Francine played for Florida where he appeared in 29 games and started twice as a redshirt freshman in 2015-16. He sat out the 2016-2017 season due to transfer rules. Since then, he has become a nice addition to the Texas Tech basketball team and tonight he really showed off his skills.

Brandone Francis… you’re the real MVP.
