The game ended after midnight Saturday in Buffalo and the players were exhausted. The refs were beat, the crowd was thinning and the photographers were wired. UConn beat their old Big East opponent, Villanova inside the First Niagara Center. UConn will advance to the Sweet-16 at Madison Square Garden next week. Villanova goes back to Philly. What a game!
