George Mason upset Villanova ~ 2011 NCAA 2nd round, Cleveland

Game 1 of Session 1 on Friday at Quicken Loans Arena was a good one.  By now I'm sure you've seen the highlights.  Here's the game story for those of you that missed it.  I arrived in Cleveland for the session and immediately I ran into three George Mason University fans.  The college kids drove the 6.5-7 hours through the night to Cleveland, OH to root for their team. 

It felt like "home" being surrounded by all the Ohio State fans and a few Mason fans, but it WAS "home" because I was in Ohio.  Needless to say, it was surreal.

Villanova played tough, but basically fell apart down the stretch.  Mason mounted a comeback and came out victorious.  With just under a minute to go in the 2nd half, George Mason took the lead.  ****  Mason hadn't led since the score was 7-6 in the 1st half.

Mason pulled off the upset and defeated Villanova!  WHAT A GAME!!!
