No. 19 Gonzaga beats Saint Mary's 72-70

MORAGA, Calif. - Matt Bouldin scored 21 points, Josh Heytvelt added 20 and No. 19 Gonzaga survived Saint Mary's thrilling last-minute comeback for a 72-70 victory Thursday night.

Carlin Hughes hit two 3-pointers and made a layup in the final 48 seconds for the Gaels, who trimmed a seven-point deficit in the final minute to 71-70 on Hughes' wacky banked-in 3-pointer with 9.9 seconds left.

Hughes also dropped the ball out of bounds under defensive pressure with 5.2 seconds to play, and he missed a desperation 3-pointer from midcourt at the buzzer.
