Texas senator Ted Cruz was in attendance at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis on Monday night as Texas Tech faced Virginia in the national championship game. Cruz sent out a tweet with under a minute to play in regulation, and the matchup didn't go well for the Red Raiders from there. 

Cruz tweeted a selfie as Texas Tech led 66-65 with 35 seconds remaining. But the Red Raiders couldn't hold its lead, giving up a three from Virginia guard De'Andre Hunter to tie the game with 12 seconds left. Virginia then outscored Texas Tech 17-9 in overtime en route to an 85-77 victory

Cruz did follow-up with a tweet postgame. He congratulated Texas Tech for its impressive season, adding, "all of Texas is proud of you."

Cruz won his re-election campaign for the U.S. Senate in November 2018. Texas Tech reached its first Final Four in program history in 2019.
