Moraga, CA (Sports Network) - Matthew Dellavedova tallied 19 points and six assists as the Saint Mary's Gaels defeated the San Francisco Dons, 78-72, in a West Coast Conference showdown at McKeon Pavilion.

Stephen Holt added 16 points for Saint Mary's (13-4, 2-1 WCC), which bounced back from a Thursday night loss at Gonzaga. Beau Levesque chipped in 15 points from off the bench, while Mitchell Young scored 14 points for the hosts.
