Texas Tech star from Italy surprised by family at Sweet 16

National Sports

Sophomore guard Davide Moretti had a night to remember in Texas Tech’s 63-44  over Michigan in the Sweet Sixteen of the NCAA Tournament Thursday at the Honda Center.

Moretti scored 15 points and hit his first five shots with his family in the stands.

His mother, father and younger brother surprised Moretti at the team hotel on Wednesday.

Moretti missed his first seven three-point attempts in Texas Tech’s first two tournament wins but hit three in a row to help the Red Raiders advance to the Elite Eight for the second straight season.

The Red Raiders face the No. 1 seed in the West Region, Gonzaga, at 5:09 p.m. (CST) Saturday in Anaheim, California.
