During a film session the night before the Red Raiders take on Michigan in the Sweet 16, Chris Beard told his players to be accountable and hold the person next to you accountable to make sure that everyone is ready to go Thursday night.

Coach Beard talked about how this game wasn't just for his current players, but for everyone who's worn the Double T. He then proceeded to tell Davide Moretti to stand up and tell everyone who he plays for.

When Moretti stood up and started talking about his family, this surprise happened:

We've already seen Coach Beard do something just like this for Brandone Francis, who had his parents show up on senior night to watch him for the first time since he has come to Texas Tech.

Texas Tech takes on the Michigan Wolverines in the Sweet 16 on Thursday at 8:39 p.m. (CT) in the second West Region matchup of the day, following no. 1 Gonzaga and no. 4 Florida State at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California.
