Good morning, Netizens...
Last evening St. Mary's upset favored Gonzaga from the opening tip-off. Although the final score was 81-62, Gonzaga only held a narrow lead for a short time, toward the end of the second half then St. Mary's lead began increasing steadily.
I'll leave it to the sports analysts to tell us why the Zags lost this game so vital to winning the title. I'm sure they will have a cogent reason for what originally seemed like a nearly sure-fire chance for Gonzaga to attend the “big dance” this year, a chance that petered out by the middle of the second quarter of the game.
I can only imagine the trip home from Las Vegas will be somber, subdued and very reflective of a long exciting season that went down in smoke.
