MORAGA, Calif. (AP) -Omar Samhan had 24 points, 10 rebounds and seven blocks and Saint Mary's beat San Francisco 73-57 Saturday night to move into first place in the West Coast Conference.
Clint Steindl added 12 points for the Gaels (21-7, 8-1), who moved half a game ahead of No. 17 Gonzaga.
Dior Lowhorn scored a game-high 25 points and added eight rebounds for San Francisco (9-15, 4-5).
Samhan, the conference's leading scorer and rebounder, hit 10-of-20 shots from the floor before fouling out with 3:46 to play. He became just the second player in Saint Mary's history to reach 1,000 career rebounds and moved within six blocks of tying Diamon Simpson's school record.
Gonzaga (7-1 in conference) beat Memphis 66-58 in a non-conference game earlier Saturday and will host Saint Mary's on Thursday.
