The St Mary’s Gaels and Richmond Spiders square off this afternoon in what should be one of the best 1st round match ups for the 2010 March Madness. St Mary’s is the 10 seed in the South Region of the NCAA tournament, while the Richmond Spiders were given the 7 seed in the South. The winner of this St Mary’s vs Richmond game will most likely have a meeting with 2nd seeded Villanova in the 2nd round. The Richmond Spiders were 26-8 overall this season, going 13-3 in Atlantic 10 conference play. St Mary’s had an overall record of 26-5, where they went 11-3 in West Coast conference play. With Richmond being favored by two points in this afternoon’s tilt it is guaranteed to be an exciting first round match up.
