Ce l’ha fatta, coach Tom Izzoce l’ha fatta. Con solo una vittoria ha spazzato via le voci di chi lo dava per finito, di chi sosteneva avesse perso il tocco magico. Con una vittoria ha sconfitto sia i fantasmi, visto che Michigan State non arrivava alle Final Four dal 2015 sia la sua nemesi, quel coach K e quella Duke che era riuscito a battere solo una volta su 12 incontri in carriera.
“Questa è la squadra più tosta che io abbia mai allenato", ha detto Izzo dopo la vittoria contro i Blue Devils. Si potrebbe fargli notare che si tratta di un commento che ha fatto spesso dopo grandi partite, e che tante sue squadre del passato sono state da lui definite “le più toste”, ma in questo caso soprassediamo perché questa Michigan State ha davvero qualcosa di particolare.
Che cosa? Giocano di squadra. Non c…

Durante il periodo del torneo Ncaa, la parola “storia” viene usata e riusata fino a diventare quasi stucchevole quando la si sente. In ogni torneo che si rispetti, un ateneo, allenatore o giocatore raggiunge un obiettivo storico per sé o per l’università in cui gioca e la narrativa delle ultime stagioni di Texas Tech ha proprio a che fare con gli appuntamenti con la storia. Le prime Elite Eight dell’anno scorso e le inaspettate Final Four di questa stagione sono i massimi traguardi stabiliti dall’università di Lubbock e sono frutto di un triennio di lavoro, da parte di Chris Beard e dello staff, encomiabile. Vi abbiamo raccontato qui il percorso di Davide Moretti, vediamo come Texas Tech sta diventando la prossima powerhouse del college basketball e Beard il nuovo guru tra gli allenatori.

Un ingaggio inaspettato
E’ il 2016 e Tin…
