Among the most surprising results of any game involving a nationally ranked team this season happened Thursday night inside McKeon Pavilion. Saint Mary's was a 15-point favorite at home over UT Arlington but lost 65-41.
That's a 29-point swing.
Things like that don't happen often.
So, needless to say, the Gaels took a tumble in all computer formulas and the CBS Sports Top 25 (and one) after shooting just 31.4 percent from the field in the loss. They will go down in history as the first ranked team to ever fall to UT Arlington - though, it should be noted, Scott Cross' Mavericks have also won at Ohio State, Memphis and Texas in the past 13 months.
Saint Mary's is now 21st in the Top 25 (and one).
