NCAA Tournament Recap- Saturday 2nd Round Part 1

10. Saint Mary’s over 2. Villanova (75-68)

  • On paper it was an upset, but after watching these two play on Thursday it really wasn’t.  It was a hard fought game, but St. Mary’s won it late to advance to the sweet 16.  The NCAA Tournament gods must have been watching, especially after the Gaels Mickie McConell banked in a desperation 3 high off the glass with 1:15 to go.  That gave St. Mary’s a 3 point lead. 
  • Villanova’s “weak” frontcourt showed.  The Gael’s F Omar Samhan dominated inside scoring 32 points and grabbing 7 boards. 
  • Villanova star Scottie Reynolds had a forgettable tournament showing.  He had just 8 points on just 9 of 11 shooting.
  • Game Rating- 3 1/4*
