Waldow leads No. 21 Saint Mary's over BYU

Jan 29, 2012 - 8:27 AM Provo, UT (Sports Network) - Brad Waldow had 19 points and eight rebounds to help No. 21 Saint Mary's to an 80-66 win over BYU.

Clint Steindl had 16 points and Rob Jones added 13 points and nine rebounds for Saint Mary's (21-2, 10-0 WCC), which has won 11 straight.

Noah Hartsock had 15 points as did Matt Carlino for BYU (18-6, 6-3), which had won its previous two coming into the game.

The game stayed tight for the first several minutes, but the Gaels took control of the game with a 10-0 run that was capped on a Wadlow layup for a 32-20 lead with four minutes left in the first half.

Clint Steindl made two free throws at the end of the half to give Saint Mary's a 40-28 lead after 20 minutes.

"Saint Mary's played terrific, especially in that first half," said BYU coach Dave Rose. "I thought they spread us out and had multiple players make big plays and big shots. We didn't get the shots we wanted to and we got in a little bit of a hurry."

The Gaels' lead reached 23 points just over three minutes into the second half when a pair of Stephen Holt free throws made it a 55-32 game.

That deficit proved to be too much for BYU to rally from, as the closest the school made it was nine points in the final minutes of the contest.
