MILWAUKEE (AP) — Texas’ Chris Beard has beaten Matt Painter’s Purdue teams twice in the NCAA Tournament. Both times, Beard had the worse-seeded squad.
He will try to do it again Sunday when the sixth-seeded Longhorns (22-11) face the third-seeded Boilermakers (28-7) in the second round of the East Region.
Mark Adams describes himself as an old West Texas farm boy who grew up on the cotton field and dreamed of being Texas Tech’s head basketball coach.
He has done it, though it was a decades-long journey that rarely got too far away from home for the 65-year-old Adams.

As a Tech student in the late 1970s, Adams asked former basketball coach Gerald Myers a lot of questions.
