For the second year in a row, Texas Tech University has won the Final Four in chess. After games in which each of four finalists play the other teams, Texas Tech's squad earned 8 points, narrowly edging out the University of Texas at Dallas and the University of Maryland-Baltimore County (each of which finished with 7.5 points), The Lubbock Avalanche-Journal reported. New York University was fourth. There could be big changes next year, however, as Texas Tech's coach, Susan Polgar, is moving to Webster University, taking key team members with her.
