MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (KLBK) — On Thursday, Texas Tech coach Chris Beard answered questions from reporters in Minneapolis.
Auburn, Virginia, Michigan State and Texas Tech are all in town for the Final Four. The national semifinals are on Saturday, when Auburn faces Virginia and Michigan State takes on Texas Tech.
The championship game is on Monday. The last time Minneapolis hosted the Final Four was in 2001, when Duke beat Arizona for the title at the Metrodome.
That stadium was torn down in 2014 to make room for U.S. Bank Stadium, which opened in 2016.
