Wrapping up the tournament:
Final game recap:
Virginia capped off a wild tournament with the overtime win against Texas Tech. Despite having an early 10 point lead in the game, Virginia needed a 3 pointer from De'Andre Hunter with 12 seconds left in regulation to tie the game. From that point on, Virginia outscored Texas Tech 17-9 in overtime to win going away and avenge their first round loss in 2018 to # 16 seed Maryland Baltimore County. This was Virginia's first ever NCAA tournament championship.
In our game, Dave Eccles had the 4 point lead and was looking at holding off Team Trevino (Ralph, Nick & Sam) to claim his 2nd win in 3 years. He was expecting 28 points from his 3 remaining draft picks remaining Kyler Edwards (Tx Tech), Ty Jerome & Kihei Clark (Virginia) and he got 31 points out of them. The problem was Team Trevino's draft picks remaining Davide Moretti & Brandone Francis (Tx Tech) and De'Andre Hunter went off the charts. They combined to score 59 points in the championship game, almost double from what their expected points were and Team Trevino won the tournament title for their 3rd win in the last 7 years, nice!
Interesting note, Trevino's ended up with 861 points scored in the tournament, the exact same total that Team SID finished with in the prior year.
The 2019 All tournament team was comprised of Virginia's Kyle Guy MOP, De'Andre Hunter & Ty Jerome and Texas Tech's Jared Culver & Matt Mooney
All of the scoring has been rechecked and I found NO corrections were needed
