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.
