TV Take: Run never comes for Gonzaga as Saint Mary’s completes the upset in ‘Shock City’

UPDATED: Tue., March 12, 2019, 11:16 p.m.

The script for this one has been performed before. Twice this season, in fact. Underdog Saint Mary’s stays close to top-ranked Gonzaga for a while. The Gaels slow the pace, hit shots, deny transition and for 20, 30 minutes, force GU to play their way. And then the Zags explode. Except on Tuesday night in Las Vegas, they didn’t.
