Virginia captures 2019 National Championship in overtime thriller

04/09/2019

It’ll be remembered as a story of redemption.

And it’ll be remembered as one of the best in National Championship Game history as Virginia edged Texas Tech, 85-77, in overtime on Monday night in Minneapolis.

After the Cavaliers tied the score at 68 when De’Andre Hunter made a three-pointer with 13 seconds to play in regulation, the “Hoos” outscored the Red Raiders, 17-9, in overtime to finish atop the college basketball world in 2019.


Behind a game-high 27 points from Hunter as well as 24 points from Kyle Guy, the NCAA Tournament’s Most Outstanding Player, Virginia captured its first National Championship in program history inside U.S. Bank Stadium.
