Disappointed Fans React to TTU Loss

Red Raider fans poured into Bleacher's Sports Cafe with hopes of a much anticipated victory.

"Tech's going to win, easy, I'd say 10-15 points the way they're playing.," said long-time Raider fan Brandon King.

Fans hoped that a strong start from the TTU men would carry them to victory. 

"If Tech can play like this the rest of the game there's no problem, upset number one St. Joe's. Their inside game is really good, if we can stop that three shot, we should be okay," he added

But St. Joe's outside shooting proved to be stronger than the will of the fans.

"Those 3 pointers St. Joe's was throwing down it was unbelievable, it was you know we kept to the end, tied it up and really thought that we were going to pull it off and right at the end little mistakes cost the game but they did well," said Aaron Lewark, loyal fan.

Well enough to make fans proud.

"I feel gratified they were able to hang with the number one seed like they did and it was a game all the way to the end," said Red Raider fan, Steve Mosser.

The game proved to have a bittersweet ending for this fan.

"I got tickets to the final four, my son and I are going, Tech won't be there but I guess I will..." he added.
