One more game remains in the college basketball season. Virginia will take on Texas Tech tomorrow night for the national title.
Dick Vitale has unveiled his prediction for the matchup. He’s going with the Cavaliers.
Before yesterday’s semifinals, Vitale was on Michigan State to win it all. However, he had to change that pick after the Spartans lost to TTU last night.
He likes Virginia in a close, low-scoring affair.

Interestingly, the early over/under for tomorrow’s game was set at 119, which is the exact total that Dickie V is predicting.
Should Virginia cut down the nets tomorrow, it will be quite the turnaround for Tony Bennett and company. Just one year ago, they became the only No. 1 seed to lose to a 16-seed and faced questions on their deliberate playing style and its ability to win in March.
Now, they’re one win away from the first national title in school history. Texas Tech is also looking for its first championship.
Tip-off is set for 9:20 p.m. ET on CBS.
