MINNEAPOLIS -

The Red Raiders practiced here in front of thousands, preparing for the match-up with Michigan State.

The Spartans come to town on a nine-game winning streak, beating Duke to win the East Region. The Red Raiders are on a four-game win streak. The Big 12 regular season champs have won 13 of their last 14. Tech knocked off Gonzaga to win the West.

Click the video above to hear from Norense Odiase, Deshawn Corprew and Kyler Edwards. We visited with them Friday afternoon.

While this is Texas Tech's first Final four, Michigan State has reached the pinnacle of college hoops eight times under Tom Izzo. This includes a national title in 2000.
