SAN DIEGO (AP) - Rob Jones scored a career-high 31 points and had 12 rebounds to lead Saint Mary's, Calif., to a 78-72 victory over San Diego on Thursday night.

Jones, who played two seasons for San Diego before transferring, scored 13 points over a 5-minute stretch in the second half as the Gaels (14-2, 3-0 West Coast) pulled ahead.

Freshman Johnny Dee led the Toreros (5-9, 0-2) with 22 points, and Christopher Anderson added 16.

Matthew Dellavedova scored 16 points, including eight straight that gave the Gaels their largest lead to that point at 69-62 with 3:24 remaining.
