Calvin Hermanson scored 16 and Saint Mary's notched its ninth straight 20-win season with a 68-62 win over Loyola Marymount on Saturday night.
The Gaels (20-4, 11-3 West Coast Conference) had their largest lead at 43-23 after Hermanson capped a 10-2 start to the second half with a 3-pointer at the 14:33 mark.
The Lions (11-15, 4-11) steadily chipped away at the deficit for the rest of the second half and Steven Haney's 4-point play cut it to seven with 42 seconds left.
