"I just tried to be aggressive", said Hunter. It was on line.

Monday night's game is bound to be one for the history books, as either victor will score a first-ever championship title for its school, according to CBS Sports. He had 15 points, but on just 5-for-22 shooting, nine rebounds and five assists.

"I think I missed a rotation", said Texas Tech guard Matt Mooney.
