Texas Tech-Villanova game time announced for Elite Eight matchup

The Wildcats earned a 90-78 win against the Mountaineers in Boston.

NOTES With his 27 points, Brunson moved into 18th place on the career scoring list with 1,625 career points. The Wildcats had zero trouble with 16-seed Radford in an 87-61 win, then proceeded to score 49 second-half points against an elite defensive team in Alabama, rolling to an 81-58 drubbing.

Villanova will face third-seeded Texas Tech with a chance to advance to the Final Four for the second time in the last three seasons. West Virginia has been bounced in the Sweet 16 in two of the last three years, getting blown out by Kentucky in 2015 and then losing by three to Gonzaga last season. Carter added 12 points and eight assists.

It wasn't 35-2, but the spate of fouls, and the change in the style of officiating, loomed right alongside Villanova's hot shooting from 3-point range as the primary reasons the Mountaineers are now out of the 2018 NCAA Tournament.

Villanova and West Virginia play each other in Boston in an East region Sweet 16 matchup Friday.

"That was the most physically challenging and mentally challenging 40 minutes that we've played in a long time", said Villanova coach Jay Wright. We had been in that game so many times, and I had talked about it so many times, saying this is going to happen. While Orange is the New Black is the bigger show with a longer history on its side, The Ranch was the Cinderella story of our tournament previous year, advancing all the way to the final round where they came up a few votes shy of winning against the Gilmore Girls.

Turnovers. West Virginia is going to do whatever they can to speed Villanova up and make them turn the ball over, but Villanova has the guards to handle the pressure that the Mountaineers are going to throw at them.

Judge temporarily blocks 15-week abortion ban
It also comes just after Iowa announced legislation to ban most abortions after a fetal heartbeat could be detected. Wade , Hood told Cincinnati.com that the bill could prompt the court to reconsider that decision.

West Virginia advanced to the Sweet 16 for the second consecutive year.

Wright called a timeout to settle his team down and remind them to stick to the game plan with plenty of time left. That was followed by Daxter Miles being whistled for his third and fourth fouls over a two-minute stretch that sent him to the bench with 15 minutes remaining. "I was just trying to take the right shots and be aggressive".

West Virginia was able to adjust for a while and took advantage of a more than three-minute Villanova scoring drought to take a 60-54 edge with just over 11 minutes left. But Villanova heated up again.

After Villanova went into halftime with a two-point lead, the Mountaineers opened the game's final 20 minutes with a 10-2 run and later had their largest lead of the game at six points, but it would soon disappear before their eyes. Now the 85-points-per-game Blue Devils go against an ACC rival that has held three straight opponents to 60 or less after coming out of the First Four in Dayton. "We've had a lot of young guys contribute big minutes and we've had older guys contribute big minutes, so it's just us playing together these last couple of months. I think that's a really valuable game for us, really valuable".

West Virginia coach Bob Huggins was close to blowing a gasket.

"I was just having a shoot-'em-up battle in the streets mentality", he said. We had shots. We didn't make them. When Villanova's Mikal Bridges attempted to throw down a transition tomahawk jam midway through Friday's second half, Konate met the future first-round pick at the rim with one of his trademark two-handed blocks.

Guard Jevon Carter paced West Virginia with 28 points against Marshall.

Katy Perry Threw Major Shade At Taylor Swift On 'American Idol'
When I'm not scrolling through various timeline's I'm researching skin care regiments and watching the Cleveland Cavaliers. Swift released " Bad Blood " in 2014, a song and music video widely understood to be about how Perry backstabbed her.

"It was always a great trip up here", Wright said.

"I don't think we want it in the 60s and 70s", Huggins said.

The Boilermakers have now been to the Sweet 16 four times in the last 10 seasons, and as almost everyone knows at this point, the first three of those trips ended in defeat. The Red Raiders got consistent production from across the board, as four players finished in double-figures.

The Wildcats' 13 3-pointers give them 432 for the season, putting them 11 away from a Division I record.

The barrage of 3-pointers gets the attention.

Despite the outcome, Carter said he is proud of his classmates' four-year run.

"They've got a lot of guards that can shoot and can drive", Carter explained.
