Virginia beat Texas Tech 85–77 in overtime on Sunday in Minneapolis to earn its first NCAA national title, and the Cavaliers' community went into full celebration mode.

The story was even sweeter for Virginia after the Hoos lost last year in the first round to No. 16 seed UMBC.

After three lead changes in the first four minutes of overtime, Virginia owned the final 60 seconds to earn the title. De'Andre Hunter had a career-high 27 points in the win.

Following the big victory, fans reacted in Minnesota and in Charlottesville.
