Recap: Pepperdine vs. St Marys-CA

Malibu, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Behind a career-high 29 points from Stephen Holt, the Saint Mary's Gaels outlasted the Pepperdine Waves in overtime, 69-67, in a West Coast Conference tilt at Firestone Fieldhouse.

For the Gaels (18-7, 8-4 WCC), Beau Levesque posted a double-double with 14 points and 10 rebounds, Kerry Carter scored 11 and Brad Waldow pulled down 10 rebounds.

Brendan Lane led the Waves (14-11, 7-6) with double-double of his own, finishing with 19 points and 10 rebounds as well as six blocks, while Jeremy Major added 14 points, Stacy Davis dropped in 12 points and Amadi Udenyi chipped in with 10 points and seven assists.

Pepperdine shot just 41.7 percent in the first half, including 3-of-7 from beyond the arc, but held Saint Mary's to just 30 percent shooting from the field, as the Waves led at the break, 28-22. The Gaels hit on only 3-of-13 from beyond the arc in the opening period.

The Waves connected on 50 percent of their field goal tries after halftime. Though the Gaels shot only 37.9 percent in the second half, they were able to stay close by taking nine more shots from the floor than the Waves. After Holt sank 1-of-2 free throws with 26 seconds left in regulation to put the Gaels up 59-57, Lane scored on a dunk just seven seconds later to tie it up. A Holt fall-away jumper as time ran out in regulation was short, so the teams went into overtime knotted at 59-59.

The teams traded leads on nearly every possession in the extra session. Trailing 67-66 with 1:21 to play in overtime, Holt drained two free throws to put the Gaels up for good. The Waves had three shots in close to take the lead in the waning seconds but couldn't get their shots to fall. Carter made 1- of-2 free throws with four seconds on the clock to set the final score, as a desperation 3-pointer at the buzzer by Lane was well off the mark.

The Gaels had the edge on the glass, outrebounding the Waves, 40-31. The Gaels pulled down 19 offensive rebounds and converted them into 13 second-chance points.
