After unforgettable moments, March Madness concluded with Virginia defeating Texas Tech.

When March Madness started mid-April, Zion Williamson and the Duke Blue Devils were favorites to take home the title. In the first round, Duke blew by sixteen-seed North Dakota State by 23. Murray State’s Ja Morant had social media blowing up about his first round performance, helping them upset Marquette.

Round two was nothing but exciting. UCF gave Duke a run for their money, letting the win slip away in the final minutes and allowing Duke to slip away with a one-point win. Maryland and LSU were tied coming down to the final seconds until LSU point guard Tremont Waters delivered a clutch layup with two seconds left to get LSU to the Sweet 16.

Three-seeded Purdue and two-seeded Tennessee took the game into OT after battling all of regulation. Purdue jumped ahead in OT and controlled the lead from there, advancing them to the Elite Eight to face off against Virginia.

The two teams battled to the end, taking another game into OT. The score was tight down to the last couple of seconds until Virginia took a five point lead to finish the game.

Auburn fell to Virginia by one in the Final Four after a memorable run as the five seed. Texas Tech held off Michigan State by ten, advancing them to the Championship Game for the first time ever.

Virginia against Texas Tech was a battle. The two took the game all the way into another overtime. Texas Tech fought but could not keep up with Virginia, losing 85-77. With the win, Virginia secured their first ever National Championship.
