MARCH MADNESS

St. Mary's Upsets Villanova

Upsets seem to be the name of the game in this year’s March Madness. The latest one occurred in Saturday’s showdown between 10th-seeded Saint Mary’s and 2nd-seeded Villanova. Center Omar Samhan was the game's leading scorer, racking up 32 points and seven rebounds, and led St. Mary's to a 75-68 victory. Post-game, Samhan shouted in the locker room, “Did it really happen? We won? For real?” Saint Mary’s will advance to play Old Dominion or Baylor on Thursday. Villanova, which made it to the Final Four just a year ago, led early in the game, but star player Scottie Reynolds fell flat, missing nine out of 11 shots.
