Gonzaga pulls it out by one over Texas A&M on a Vivian Frieson jumper with 12 seconds left. Mad props to Frieson for doing the damn thing, and at home, too. The girl is from Seattle, and it’s nice to see that, because for the longest time, Seatown has had some trouble producing talent that lasts in the NCAA. Hopefully Frieson can turn the karma tide around.
Florida State beat St. John’s by a point, too. I’m bummed about that one.
And despite Andrea Riley’s amazing 31-point return and an overtime, it wasn’t enough for Oklahoma State, who fell to Georgia, 74-71. I’m not thrilled about that one either.
Next stop for the winners, Sweet 16 on Saturday.
