Texas Tech Advances to First Elite Eight in School History

"When you're in it, you learn that everything is going on around you, but really your experience is just the next game, and you love that more than - you know, we've all been fans of this and watched it, and it's great, but there's nothing like being in it and having that next game", Wright said.

The game is scheduled to start at about 2:20 p.m. ET and will be broadcast nationally on CBS. Their leader has been Keenan Evans, who scored 12 of his team-high 16 points in the second half against Purdue.

Strong guard play has been critical for the Red Raiders throughout the tournament.

Texas Tech, making its first appearance in the Sweet 16 since 2005, had lost all five of its previous trips to the regional semifinals.

But for the second time in three seasons, after a 71-59 victory over the No. 3 Texas Tech Red Raiders, Villanova is Final Four bound.

But neither did anyone else at Texas Tech - until now.

Suffocating defense held Texas Tech field goal-less toward the end of the first half, as 19 free throws in the first 20 minutes certainly helped Villanova.

"Why shouldn't we? We've got a great university", coach Chris Beard said. Whether it's a block shot, steal or just pumping them up during timeouts to make sure they give everything they have.

Take care of the ball because Texas Tech is better defensively than West Virginia is and they will attack the Wildcats all night. And they've only increased that onslaught during the tournament, going 44-of-92 (47.8 percent) from deep in wins over Radford, Alabama and West Virginia.

In a year where upsets have ruled, Villanova looms as a chalk giant, waiting to win two more games before taking its place atop the college basketball world ... again. "That's the ratio. Unless we lose, and then I get three, and they get one", Beard explained.

Texas Tech is arguably the deepest and most versatile team left in the tournament, and possibly in the country.

In each of Villanova's four losses this season, the opposing team made at least 14 free-throws and shot at least 70%. The Red Raiders are 62nd in the nation in 3-point defensive percentage at 32.8 percent.
