Kansas State, Mount St Mary's win First Four matchups

No Comments

By Anthony Pucik

Gabriel Christus / ESPN Images(DAYTON, OH) — March Madness began Tuesday night in Dayton, Ohio with two of the First Four match ups.

The first game featured two 16 seeds, Southland Conference champion New Orleans and Northeast Conference champion Mount St Mary’s, in a game that went down to the wire. Mount St. Mary’s was trailing New Orleans 64-63 with under two minutes to play in the second half after two free throws by New Orleans’ Christavious Gill. Mount St. Mary’s responded with a Junior Robinson jump shot to give them a one-point advantage.

New Orleans trailed 67-66 with four seconds left when they rebounded the ball after a Robinson miss. After a timeout, New Orleans attempted to set up the game winning shot, but a Chris Wray steal stopped its efforts, giving Mount St. Mary’s the one point victory. The Mountaineers will head to Buffalo to take on first seeded Villanova on Thursday.

The second game of the night featured two 11 seeds, Wake Forest and Kansas State. Defense was not a factor in this one, as the two teams combined to score 107 points in the second half. The game was close throughout, but Kansas State was able to pull away late, giving them a 95-88 victory. They will take on sixth seeded Cincinnati on Friday in Sacramento.

On Wednesday, four more teams get their shot at rounding out the 64-team bracket. 16 seeds face off as North Carolina Central takes on UC Davis at 6:40 PM ET, followed by 11 seeds USC and Providence at approximately 9:10 PM ET.

McDonald's employee rescues unconscious cop in Florida

iStock/Thinkstock(MIAMI) — A McDonald’s employee in Florida rescued a police officer on Tuesday after she became unconscious at the restaurant’s drive-thru window, according to a local ABC News affiliate report.

Surveillance footage provided to Miami-based station WPLG showed the fast-acting employee, Pedro Viloria, jumping out of the Doral store’s drive-thru window after a customer very slowly pulled away and ran into a median.

Viloria said the customer — an off-duty Miami-Dade police officer who had her two children in the backseat — was suffering from a medical emergency.

Viloria said the customer pulled up and paid for her order without a problem, but he noticed that she was having trouble breathing once he returned to the window with her food.
“In that moment, I thought, I’d rather save that woman’s life,” Viloria told WPLG on Tuesday. “I see she’s like inflating her neck, like trying to breathe, like ‘ahh,’ and basically I thought something was going wrong.”

After checking on the customer and finding her unconscious, Viloria said he rushed back into the restaurant to get help.

Thankfully, he did not have to look far.

A customer, who identified herself as a paramedic, jumped into action and assisted the cop, WPLG reported.

Moments later, an off-duty Miami-Dade Fire Rescue worker entered the store and offered his assistance as well, according to the report.

“The real heroes are the fire rescuers,” Viloria told WPLG.

Viloria said the first responders performed CPR on the woman and used an automated external defibrillator machine to revive her.
