The Saint Mary’s men’s basketball team was eliminated from the NCAA Tournament Friday night, as the Gaels lost to Purdue, 72-69.

Purdue led for the majority of the game, and it looked to be out of reach for the Gaels when they trailed by 11 points with just over four minutes left in the game. The Gaels went on a 14-2 run to take the lead with 44 seconds left, but several key plays from the Boilermakers in the final seconds were enough to win.

Although the Gaels had a great season by winning the WCC regular season and WCC Tournament titles, there is certainly some disappointment from a team that expected to advance.
