    Landale's 32 leads No. 16 Saint Mary's past BYU 75-62

    Saint Mary's coach Randy Bennett likes knowing that his team's 15-game winning streak hasn't received much national attention.

    The way the 16th-ranked Gaels have been playing lately, it's going to be difficult to ignore.

    Jock Landale had 32 points and 14 rebounds and No. 16 Saint Mary's pulled away in the second half to beat BYU 75-62 on Thursday night.

    No. 16 Saint Mary's beats Portland for 16th straight win

    Saint Mary's celebrated its school-record 16th straight win the same way as the previous 15 -- with no announcement over the loudspeakers and no recognition of any sort.

    Just a few handshakes and hugs, typical of the 16th-ranked Gaels all season.

    Jordan Ford tied his career high with 20 points, including 16 in the first half, and Saint Mary's beat Portland 72-55 on Saturday night.

    Landale has 26 in No. 13 Saint Mary's 79-43 win over USF

    Jock Landale kept passing out of double-teams and finding open shooters on the perimeter in the first half, something the Saint Mary's big man has become very adept at doing this season.

    When San Francisco changed its defensive strategy in the second half, Landale took advantage and took over to keep the 13th-ranked Gaels rolling.

    Landale bounced back from his lowest scoring game of the season and had 18 of his 26 points in the second half as Saint Mary's beat San Francisco 79-43 on Thursday night.

    Tillie helps No. 12 Gonzaga hold off Pacific, 71-61

    Gonzaga did the little things to make up for a rough night shooting, primarily crashing the offensive boards against Pacific to bail out its erratic offense.

    In doing so, the 12th-ranked Bulldogs set themselves up for a highly anticipated rematch with No. 11 Saint Mary's that may decide the West Coast Conference championship.

    Killian Tillie had 21 points and 10 rebounds and made a key tip-in with 1:39 remaining, and Gonzaga beat Pacific 71-61 on Thursday night.

    No. 11 Saint Mary's keeps rolling, beats Loyola Marymount

    Not looking too far ahead has been an effective mindset for Saint Mary's, which hasn't lost since November.

    After another businesslike win on Thursday night, the 11th-ranked Gaels can gear up for their biggest game of the season.

    Jock Landale scored 21 points and Jordan Ford added 20 points and nine rebounds to lead Saint Mary's to an 83-62 victory over Loyola Marymount.

    Gonzaga snaps Saint Mary's 19-game win streak, 78-65

    By forcing the ball out of Jock Landale's hands, Gonzaga was able to avenge a home loss to Saint Mary's and move back into first place in the West Coast Conference.

    Rui Hachimura scored 21 points and was a key part of a defensive effort that neutralized Landale as the 12th-ranked Bulldogs ended the nation's longest active winning streak at 19 games with a 78-65 victory over the 11th ranked Gaels on Saturday night.

    Williams leads No. 9 Gonzaga over Loyola Marymount 76-46

    Loyola Marymount was short-handed and stood second-to-last in the West Coast Conference, but No. 9 Gonzaga wasn't about to take them lightly.

    The Zags scored the first 17 points of the game and cruised to a 76-46 victory on Thursday to retain at least a share of first place in the league.

    "We needed that one," he said.

    Jock Landale had 23 points and 10 rebounds and No. 15 Saint Mary's rebounded from a pair of losses with a 73-61 victory over Portland on Saturday night.

    Ford leads No. 22 Saint Mary's past Pepperdine, 75-61

    The first two shots Saint Mary's guard Jordan Fordtook were from 3-point range, and both hit their mark.

    Ford had a feeling he was in for a big game.

    Ford had 18 points and a career-high 10 rebounds, and No. 22 Saint Mary's rolled to a 75-61 victory over Pepperdine on Thursday night.

    No. 6 Gonzaga rallies to beat San Diego, 77-72

    Gonzaga coach Mark Few stared at the box score after beating the University of San Diego and shook his head.

    "Nothing really jumps out at you," Few said. "It was an even game but we hung with it."

    Killian Tillie scored 17 points and Rui Hachimura added 16 in No. 6 Gonzaga's 77-72 victory on Thursday night that clinched at least a share of the West Coast Conference title.

    Landale leads No. 22 Saint Mary's past Santa Clara, 67-40

    Jock Landale was more concerned about enhancing the postseason prospects for Saint Mary's than he was about making a final appearance at McKeon Pavilion.

    It could be another two weeks before the 22nd-ranked Gaels know their fate for certain, but they like their chances of getting into the NCAA Tournament after closing out the regular season with a third straight win.

    read more Landale had 19 points and eight rebounds in his final home game, and No. 22 Saint Mary's beat Santa Clara 67-40 on Saturday.

    No. 7 Gonzaga advances to WCC semifinals

    Gonzaga was sluggish early in the West Coast Conference Tournament quarterfinal against Loyola Marymount on Saturday night.

    That slow start lingered into the second half letting the Lions hang around until there were 10 minutes to play.

    Hot shooting and rebounding eventually got No. 7 Gonzaga going.

    Killian Tillie scored 24 points, including making all five 3-point attempts, while Johnathan Williams added 20 points and 10 rebounds to lead Gonzaga to an 83-69 victory.
