Texas Tech cancels classes ahead of NCAA Championship Game

Texas Tech is canceling all of its classes after 5 p.m. on Monday and all of Tuesday as the school’s men’s basketball team will be playing in the finals of the NCAA Tournament.

The school sent out an email to all students and faculty on Sunday alerting them of the cancellations.

All classes will resume as scheduled on Wednesday.

The Red Raiders are in the championship game for the first time in school history. The team faces off against the Virginia Cavaliers.

If Texas Tech were to win, it would become only the second Division I men’s basketball team in the state to ever win a championship.

The first and only school to do that was Texas Western (now known as UTEP) in 1966.

Tip off for the game is at 7:20 p.m. MST.

ABC-7 has not been able to confirm if classes at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso will be affected.
