Michigan State will face off against Texas Tech and No. 1 Virginia will embark on an attempt to slow down five-seeded Auburn.

The teams converge on Minneapolis on Thursday, two days before games begin Saturday night at US Bank Stadium.

It's a complete toss-up, but I think Izzo and the Spartans are too good to pass up.

"Coach Izzo is one of my idols", Beard said. I'm not sure there was anybody that's ever done a better job of handling something, and in his own way using that as a motivator to not feel sorry for ourselves: "'It's part of who we are, and let's move forward'". He's been great to coaches. "We have so much respect for his program".

"Today talking to him on the phone was just really cool", Beard said. The Final Four has been decided.

Auburn coach Bruce Pearl, who like Beard led his program to its first Final Four, said his team already is prepared for the big stage.

The Tigers ousted North Carolina in the regional semifinal, sandwiched by wins over Kansas and Kentucky. This is an experienced Virginia team, and these three players have combined for more than 44 points per game this season.

Streaming music is going to officially take over the world this year
Income from ad-supported music, such as commercials running around YouTube music videos, accounted for a 10th of the global total. Paid subscriptions, in fact, were the biggest slice of streaming sales, making up 32.9 percent of global revenue, IFPI said.

To recap, first-time teams are 4-10 straight up in the Final Four and only one team, UConn in 1999, has won the championship in its first appearance since 1985. "He put so much on the line for us this year". I got to admit, my respect for Tony, if it's possible to upgrade, was upgraded a year ago with the way he handled that loss (to Maryland-Baltimore County in the first round of the NCAA tournament).

"I want this program to honor what's important to me, my faith and these young men through success and through failure", he said, "That's what I've wanted and he (his father Dick Bennett) pointed me in the right direction".

"His influence on the game, maybe a lot of people don't know about it, but in the coaching circles has been huge", Tony Bennett said Monday.

"Now, this is important", Pearl said. Another small guard, Harper, was not offered scholarships by bigger schools. Guy was resilient in the way the players had Bennett's back as well.

Kenny Goins' three-pointer with 25 seconds remaining gave the Spartans a two-point lead, and the Blue Devils' RJ Barrett made one of two free throws with five seconds to play. He also contributes frequently to the Lindy's Sports website with articles on all sports throughout the year in a feature, editorial, and game summary mode.

"I was like, 'Why did you have to do these instructional videos back then?'" Tony Bennett chuckled. That will help. Even as a coach you're just happy to be there. "I kind of have that feeling". The Cavaliers vindicated a decade-long project with a thrilling 80-75 victory against Purdue in the Elite Eight.

Bennett is not alone in feeling his way through the Final Four. You thought you might in '18, and you didn't even get close.
