That raised questions of whether replay was being used for what was arguably its originally intended function - to correct obvious errors in officiating with conclusive imagery - and whether it was fair, in this case, to the Red Raiders.

Hunter made another three to make it 50-41 Virginia, sending the Cavaliers into the media timeout with a nine-point lead. Neither has won a national championship in basketball.

After Norense Odiase extended Tech's lead to 68-65 with a pair of free throws, Virginia's coaches gave Ty Jerome a do-over after he missed a floater on the previous possession by running the exact same play moments later.

"We came in together and said we were going to win a national championship", Guy said of Jerome and Hunter.

Guy scored 24 points Monday night in an 85-77 overtime win against Texas Tech, a match of defensive-minded teams that instead spent much of the game trading big shot after big shot.

"In terms of my guys, I've never been more proud", Red Raiders coach Chris Beard said. "And I told them, I just want a chance at a title fight one day". It was on line.

"When they came on the recruiting visit, I remember telling them, 'Look, the foundation has been laid by guys - Joe (Harris) and Malcolm (Brogdon) were here and all the guys who went before", Virginia coach Tony Bennett said.

Back in November, an anonymous bettor walked into Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook and thought to himself that he would put down a futures bet on the Texas Tech Red Raiders to win the National Championship, a program that had only been to the Elite 8 once in school history.

Hunter quietly made his way through the tournament after leading the Cavaliers in scoring (15.6 points) in ACC play.

"When I hugged my mom and dad and my brother", Jerome said.

"You have a scar, and it reminds you of that, but it's a memory, " Bennett said. "But, no, we were trying to get him the ball". The team was the first number one seed to lose to a 16th seed, making them live in infamy as being on the receiving end of one of the greatest upsets of all time.

Hunter finished the tournament in similar fashion to the way he started.

In the biggest turnaround by a team, not just in college basketball, but in all sports in recent memory, Virginia was a team of destiny.

With 5:44 left in the South Regional semifinals, OR took a 45-42 lead on Virginia.

Since a college basketball powerhouse isn't playing in the final game, prices on the secondary market are lower than in years past. "Not a lot of people get along like we do, so to share this moment with them is unbelievable". Given a few solid workouts after this national title game showing, and Hunter could easily find himself falling in the top five in this draft.

Has the pain gone completely away?
