How about that finish!! Now they might get some respect as a #3 seed, and not be underdogs to a lesser seed.

Yes if you had told me Evans would be sub 20 points I would have said Tech is going back to Lubbock. Strong effort by The bench.

Just a question since this is a Tech fan thread. A bunch here in Lubbock are complaining about the officiating and saying that is the reason Tech lost because of the refs. Thoughts?

I did not watch the whole game mostly bits and pieces of the second half but from what I saw we just got beat Villanova was on fire and the results showed it. Tech missed to many shots and could not get the rebounds.

I saw a few fouls that didn't get called but nothing that would have changed the outcome.

TTU was out rebounded both on offense and defense. PLUS, shooting % both from the field and free throw's were under Villanova & TTU's average for the year! Evan's did NOT have a good game. TTU & Villanova's 3 point scores were way under average for both teams.

At this stage it all has to come together to advance, I know...stupid but true! I'm a Lubbock born, TTU grad living in Granbury and I STILL follow all our teams!

BUT, watch out for the Raider's next year and in the year's to come?! We need some BIG recruits and another point guard and LOOK OUT!

Preface with I did not watch much of the game, but there seems to be 1 part truth there and 4 parts hurt feelings (see what I did there )

Either way, that was a helluva run for Tech and Beard is a match made in Heaven, this is just the tip of the icebreg

Agreed. Tech loses some great players but they have some great young players and should get some great recruits with they way they played and advanced in the tournament

I watched most of the game and can say officiating was not a factor. Way too many missed lay ups and jump shots and free throws and not getting fouled.

They played their usual tough defense but could not score. Happy for them making it is as far as they did, especially since being considered an underdog against Florida. They will be back.

Was a great run this year for Tech in the NCAA tournament. I think Coach Beard will keep Tech basketball at a high level for a long time. In his second year, we finish second in the conference (Tech was picked 7th) and have three NCAA wins in a run to the Elite Eight. He's just getting started...

Great season for Tech, not a good game today but all teams have an off day and this was theirs today. Great for the program to make it to the top 8.

So is Kliff on his way out? Heard he isn't doing much to win fans in the community. Cant even get to a .500 in the big 12 in 5 yrs. Pretty terrible and time for a change.

The natives are restless in Lubbock. We arenít a great program, but have grown accustomed to above .500 ball and bowl games. Kliff couldnt deliver. Local buzz is the decision was made this week, todayís game had little to no bearing on the fate of Kliffy. He couldnít win at home, which is crucial in big 12 ball.

Hope Kirby can pull a Beard/Tadlock type out for football

Hopefully things will improve. My daughter goes to Tech, we have heard a good bit about the head coach and a lot of talk of firing him. Hopefully they can get a good coach and make some big improvements.

Its official now. Kliff is a great Red Raider all the way around. Wish it would have worked out for him as the head coach. Great guy not not a great head coach yet. Wish him nothing but best wishes.

I would be okay with either of those choices, but I think Litrell is the more likely candidate. Venables will be on the short list for any program looking for a HC and he will have his pick....if he chooses to leave Clemson.
