Texas Tech men’s basketball will play in its first-ever national championship game tomorrow night against Virginia. The university is already preparing for the big occasion.
Tonight, Texas Tech President Lawrence Schovanec released a memo canceling any classes after 5 p.m. tomorrow and all classes on Tuesday.
Win or lose, the Red Raider student body will get Tuesday off to celebrate or commiserate.
Classes will resume as normal on Wednesday.

Given how much TTU students got after it after last night’s win, the partying will be epic tomorrow night, especially if the team wins.
This has been quite the run for the Red Raiders. The program has already checked its first Final Four and first title game appearances off the list, and is looking for a national championship.
Texas Tech and Virginia will tip off at 9:20 p.m. ET tomorrow on CBS.
