LOGAN, Utah -- Matthew Dellavedova scored 21 points and junior transfer James Walker III added a career-high 14 in his return to Logan as Saint Mary's held on for a 67-58 victory Thursday night over Utah State.
Stephen Holt added 16 points for the Gaels (2-0).
It was a rare home loss for the Aggies, who saw their 37-game home winning streak end the last time the Gaels visited in 2009.
Walker averaged just 2.1 points as a freshman at Utah State, and scored only three points in the Aggies' win over Saint Mary's that season.
In Saint Mary's season-opening win Saturday, he had just six points. He had twice that by halftime Thursday and finished shooting 5 of 9, with two 3-pointers and three steals.
Forward Kennedy Meeks, who has averaged 9.4 points and 6.5 rebounds at North Carolina, has pulled out of the NBA draft and will return to the Tar Heels.
Cal big man Ivan Rabb could have been selected in the top 10 of the NBA draft. Instead, he's returning to Berkeley to make himself, and the Golden Bears, stronger.
Devin Williams' decision last month to sign with an agent and enter the NBA draft has left West Virginia in a tough spot.
