MORAGA, Calif. -- Matthew Dellavedova scored 21 points and became the all-time leading scorer at Saint Mary's in the Gaels' 80-67 victory against Santa Clara on Saturday night.
Foster's 3-pointer got Santa Clara within 63-62 with 4:08 remaining before the Gaels went on a 9-0 run -- all on free throws -- to take a double-digit lead with a minute to play. The Broncos missed five straight shots and had two turnovers during the stretch.
Dellavedova passed fellow Australian Daniel Kickert for the school record by making a spinning short jumper with 3:53 remaining in the first half. Kickert had 1,874 points from 2002-06; Dellavedova has 1,892.
Saint Mary's came in having locked up the No. 2 seed and bye to the semifinals at the WCC tournament in Las Vegas.
With the loss, Santa Clara is the No. 4 seed, and BYU the No. 3 seed. Both schools receive a bye to the quarterfinals.
Maryland point guard Melo Trimble, considered a lock to leave the program before struggling in the second half last season, has withdrawn from the NBA draft and will return for his junior season.
Louisville's Chinanu Onuaku, who recently underwent a medical procedure to correct a heart rhythm issue detected during the combine, will keep his name in the NBA draft pool.
Andrew White III will return to the Nebraska men's basketball team next season after removing his name from the NBA draft.
