PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- Omar Samhan was an unstoppable Gael force. The only time the Saint Mary's star slowed down was to enjoy the moment."Did it really happen?" he shouted outside the locker room. "We won? For real?"For real, Omar.
Villanova proved to be successful when it was able to run the floor (8 for 9 field goals in transition), but when the game slowed down Saint Mary's dominated by controlling the paint.
