MORAGA, Calif. -- Beau Levesque tied the career high he set earlier this season against the same opponent, scoring 18 points off the bench Wednesday to help Saint Mary's beat Pacific 74-46.
Levesque, a junior, made all five of his shots, including three 3-pointers, for the Gaels (8-2). He also scored 18 on Nov. 23 in a 76-66 loss to Pacific in the DirecTV Classic in Anaheim, Calif.
Khalil Kelley scored 11 to lead the Tigers (5-6), who scored the game's first four points but saw Saint Mary's respond with a 15-1 run and cruise from there. The Gaels led 36-17 at halftime and got their biggest lead on Jordan Giusti's layup in the final minute.
Saint Mary's outrebounded Pacific 44-24, and the Tigers shot just 33 percent from the field.
