MORAGA, Calif. - The University of San Diego men's basketball team fell to Saint Mary's (16-4, 5-1) 81-48 on the road Thursday evening.
The Toreros never had a lead in the game and struggled to contain the Gaels high-power offense, which converted on 54 percent of their field goal attempts.
After both teams started out sluggish on offense, the Gaels held a 13-6 lead with 10:33 left. The Gaels offense then started to click and they opened up a 42-19 lead at halftime behind Beau Levesque's 14 first half points.
The Toreros couldn't string together a run in the second half and the Gaels were able to cruise to a victory. The Gaels are now 11-0 at home and posted a 16-1 home record last season.
Guards Mike Davis, Johnny Dee, and Cameron Miles each had eights points to lead the Torero scoring effort. For the Gaels, the majority of their points came from their big men as 45 points came from their trio of forwards in Levesque (20), Brad Waldow (15), and Mitchell Young (10).
It is the second loss in a row for the Toreros after starting out WCC play 4-0. However, they remain tied with BYU for third with two loses a piece.
The Toreros look to get back to their winning ways Saturday when they return to the Jenny Craig Pavilion to take on Santa Clara (15-6, 3-3), who sits behind them in the WCC standings. The 1:00 p.m. game will be televised on Time Warner SportsNet and the radio broadcast will come from Andy Masur on the Mighty 1090.
