Saint Mary’s loses an NCAA tournament heartbreaker at the buzzer

Thursday, March 21, 2013

Playing its second NCAA tournament game in less than 48 hours, Saint Mary’s came up just short this afternoon, losing to Memphis 54-52 in the Midwest Regional at Auburn Hills, Michigan. The 11th-seeded Gaels, who finished the season 28-7, sank a three-pointer in the waning seconds, then had a final chance with 1.9 seconds left when Memphis (31-4, 6th seed) lost the ball on the inbounds play. But star senior guard Matthew Dellavedova’s three-pointer for the win at the buzzer sailed long. CBS Sports has the recap and video of the final 10 seconds.
