Mount St. Mary’s Outlasts New Orleans, Earns Date With Villanova On Thursday.

The Mountaineers of Mount St. Mary’s outlast the Privateers of New Orleans in the First Four to earn a date with defending champion and #1 overall seed Villanova in Buffalo on Thursday night.

New Orleans made so many mistakes, as one player literally chokes another because he wasn’t on time with the pass, and with 16 seconds left, and only a 3 second difference between game & shot clock, New Orleans decides not to foul, and only leaving themselves 2.9 seconds to get a final shot, which never came.

It’s worth noting though, that no 16 seed has ever defeated a 1 seed, so, congrats to Mount St. Mary’s, but, the champs are waiting, and the champs are hungry.
