The No. 16-seeded Mount St. Mary's Mountaineers looked fearless throughout the first half of their NCAA tournament contest against No. 1 seed Villanova on Thursday, and the underdogs saved their best bucket of the first half for last.

In the final 30 seconds of the frame, guard Miles Wilson utilized a between-the-legs crossover to free up some space before driving into the lane and hitting a contested layup.

That bucket put Mount St. Mary's up 29-28, but Villanova took a 30-29 advantage into halftime during the first-round matchup.
