STOCKTON, Calif. -- All five starters scored in double figures as Saint Mary's ruined Pacific's debut in the West Coast Conference with an 88-80 win Monday.
Saint Mary's bounced back after losing three straight in Hawaii. The Gaels were playing without head coach Randy Bennett, who began serving a five-game suspension. Eran Ganot is the interim coach.
Pacific, which trailed 45-39 at the half, pulled within one before the Gaels went on a 12-2 run to go up 57-46. Waldow had three baskets and Carter and Levesque knocked down 3's.
Saint Mary's hit 13 of 26 from 3-point range, shot 52 percent for the game but only made 6 of 12 free throws down the stretch.
