St. Mary's College center Omar Samhan, a graduate of San Ramon Valley High, wades into his college's cheering section after the Gaels beat the No. 2 seed Villanova in a basketball upset, 75-68.
It was the second NCAA game for the Moraga college team, also played in Providence, R.I.
Samhan led all scorers with 32 points. The St. Mary's team now advances to the NCAA "Sweet Sixteen" next Friday, March 26, to play Baylor in Houston, Texas.
