"We didn`t expect that. I thought maybe one of them would lose so there is definitely going to be some good first round matchups on Thursday and they`re difficult games but you got to beat them sometime so we can`t control those things so we`re ready to go," said St. Mary`s head coach Jeo Mueller.
"I think we played pretty well defensively. We didn`t do as well as we thought we should have in the first game but the second and third game we did pretty well," said St. Mary`s guard Trent Bohan.
The Saints are 19-2, while the Deacons enter state with an 18-4 record.
