MORAGA, Calif. (AP) — Jock Landale had a career-high 24 points and Emmitt Naar added 20 and Saint Mary's didn't miss a shot in the first 10 minutes to roll to a 78-62 win over Pacific on Thursday night.

The Gaels (15-2, 5-1 West Coast) made their first nine shots, including two 3s, and had a 23-12 lead midway through the first half. Saint Mary's shot 83 percent (15 of 18) to lead 46-27 at the break with Naar and Landale scoring 15 points apiece on 10-of-11 shooting.

Saint Mary's cooled off in the second half, shooting 10 for 24, but still finished at 59.5 percent in winning its 13th straight home game. The Gaels came in leading the nation in field goal shooting at 53.1 percent. Landale was 7 for 7 and Naar 7 of 11, but perfect on four 3s.

Ray Bowles had 16 points for the Tigers (4-12, 3-4).
