No. 20 Saint Mary's holds off Santa Clara in WCC finale

MORAGA, Calif. (AP) Having the second-stingiest scoring defense in the country has turned out to be quite a luxury for No. 20 Saint Mary's this season.

With the Gaels unable to find a consistent flow to their offense against Santa Clara, that luxury turned out to be the difference.

Jock Landale scored 17 points and Saint Mary's beat Santa Clara 70-56 on Saturday night in the West Coast Conference regular season finale for both teams.
