Live blog: Villanova vs. Saint Mary's

The first two days of live blogging were a lot of fun, but they were also exhausting. So today, I'm just going to do the Villanova game. I would like to get outside at some point... maybe...

On the strength of 32 sensational points from center Omhar Samhan and a combined 29 points from sharpshooting guards Mickey McConnell (15) and Matthew Dellavedova (14), Saint Mary's threw Villanova out of the NCAA Tournament by a 75-68 margin at the Dunkin' Donuts Center in Providence, R.I.

The Gaels shot exactly 50 percent from the field, 24-for-28. The Wildcats shot only 25-69, 36 percent. Just as importantly, Saint Mary's attempted 26 free throws to Villanova's 11.

Corey Stokes was Villanova's leading scorer with 15 points on 5-for-9 shooting. Scottie Reynolds scored only eight points on 2-for-11 shooting in the last game of his college career.

Feel free to share your comments below. I'm pretty sure a lot of you will have things to say, especially those of you whose teams also made the second round.

But time is short
And the road is long
In the blinking of an eye
That moment's gone
