This is the best part of Selection Sunday. The live look-ins at the various schools learning their fate and it's even better when true emotion shines through.

Texas Tech had been in all of the bracketology brackets as a 4-seed this week leading up to Selection Sunday. That seed would have sent them to Boise, Idaho or San Diego, California.

That's not what happened, though. The NCAA Tournament Committee rewarded Texas Tech's resume instead of focusing on their injury-riddled finish to the Big 12 slate.

Norense Odiase gives the jumps spin. Niem Stevenson hulks out. Keenan Evans and Zach Smith share an embrace. The crowd goes wild.

As the 3-seed in the East region, Texas Tech matches up with a 14-seed Stephen F. Austin team that is very dangerous.

Here's a look at the entire East Region:

The Dallas Regional games will be played at the American Airlines Center, home of the Dallas Mavericks.

Texas Tech will be well represented in the stands in Dallas. It's an exciting time for Texas Tech Basketball!
