USF unable to slow down St. Mary's

MORAGA — Brad Waldow scored 21 points on 10-for-15 shooting and hauled in 10 rebounds to lead Saint Mary's to a 69-56 win over USF on Monday night.

Desmond Simmons added 13 points and nine rebounds, while Garrett Jackson and Emmett Naar had 10 points apiece for Saint Mary's (9-3, 2-0 West Coast Conference).

The Gaels, who shot 51.9 percent from the floor, opened the second half with a 9-2 run that included a 3-pointer from Simmons that made it 38-26 with 17:41 to go. The margin never fell below double figures the rest of the way.

USF (7-7, 1-1) led briefly in the opening period after a 3-pointer from Mark Tollefsen made it 13-10, but Saint Mary's responded with a 3 by Emmett Naar to tie it and then retook the advantage with a Waldow layup.

Tim Derksen led the Dons with 16 points and Matt Glover had 10.
