Chris Beard was excited after his Texas Tech team escaped American Airlines Center Saturday night in Dallas with a narrow 69-66 victory over Florida.
It sends the Red Raiders charging into the Sweet 16 against either Purdue or Butler Thursday in Boston.
Their victory wasn’t settled until Florida misfired on two 3-point attempts on the Gators’ final possession.
Here’s a collection of what Beard describes after winning the wild game.
On making the Sweet 16:
