Per a Facebook update from a friend traveling with the Saint Mary’s men’s basketball team, the Gaels have just landed in Houston for the Sweet 16 of the NCAA tournament.

This morning, they got a rousing sendoff at the Moraga campus. Here’s a few photos sent along to me by Edy Schwartz. We’ll have more photos as well as a story by higher education reporter Matt Krupnick about the impact of the team’s success on college admissions in tomorrow’s Times.
