  • With the 67-63 victory, Saint Mary's moved to 18-4 on the season and 7-1 in the West Coast Conference
  • Junior guard Jorden Page led the Gaels in scoring with 19 points, his highest scoring total since dropping 26 at Northern Iowa and his second-highest of the season.
  • Junior guard Stephen Holt led the team with a career-high 14 rebounds.  His previous high was a 10-rebound effort against Jackson State on Dec. 13, 2011 at McKeon Pavilion.  Tonight's total was his second career double-figures rebounding performance.
  • Senior guard Matthew Dellavedova registered two steals in the game to surpass Chase Poole (2000-04) for third on the school's career list with 135.  He is 27 shy of second-place Kamran Sufi (1993-97) and 39 short of Diamon Simpson's school record 174.
  • Dellavedova also played in his 123rd career game, tying fellow Aussie Daniel Kickert for fifth on the school's all-time list. He is 10 game shy of Omar Samhan's school-record 133 appearances.
  • Sophomore forward Brad Waldow equaled his season-high with eight rebounds.  He also grabbed eight boards at Drake and against Yale.  His career-best was a 16-rebound effort at Santa Clara last season.
  • The victory extended Saint Mary's win streak against San Francisco to 16-straight.  The last Dons victory in the series came on Jan. 16, 2006, a 53-52 decision at War Memorial Gym.
  • The win over San Francisco gave Randy Bennett his 253rd career win.  He now has a career record of 253-122.  His record in regular-season WCC games is 110-54.  He is two WCC wins shy of fourth-place on the league's all-time list, behind former Gonzaga coach Dan Fitzgerald's 15-season total of 112.
