MORAGA, Calif. -- Dan Fotu scored 16 points on 7-of-10 shooting while collecting 10 rebounds and Saint Mary's beat Pacific 71-63 on Saturday night.
The Gaels sped to an 18-6 lead and were never seriously threatened. They led 35-20 at halftime before Pacific made inroads and reduced its deficit to 48-41 on a layup by Amari McCray with 11:53 left. But the Gaels extended its margin back to double figures and Elijah Thomas' jumper with 3:48 left made it 67-50.
