ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) Texas Tech is going to the Final Four for the first time in school history.
Jarrett Culver scored 19 points and the third-seeded Red Raiders produced a suffocating defense in the second half to beat No. 1 seed Gonzaga 75-69 in the West Region final.
Neither team led by more than seven points in a game that featured 11 ties and 15 lead changes.
Texas Tech led 71-69 with 11 seconds left when Gonzaga's Josh Perkins committed a technical foul by making contact with Matt Mooney, who was out of bounds attempting an inbounds pass. Texas Tech went 4 of 4 on free-throw attempts the rest of the way to seal the victory.
Gonzaga entered the day leading all Division I teams in scoring and field-goal percentage, while Texas Tech ranked second in field-goal percentage defense.
Texas Tech is the first team from the Lone Star State to make a Final Four since Texas got there in 2003.
