SPOKANE, Wash. -- Calvin Hermanson scored 12 with a pair of free throws that made it a five-point game with 12.8 seconds left and Saint Mary's swept the season series with Gonzaga in a 63-58 win on Saturday night.
The Gaels (22-4, 13-3) tied Gonzaga atop the West Coast Conference standings as they completed their first regular-season sweep of the Bulldogs (21-7, 13-3) since 1995.

Saint Mary's had a 10-3 run to lead 58-47 with 5:10 left. Joe Rahon stopped a 6-0 Gonzaga run with a floater that made it 60-53 at 1:23. Josh Perkins and Kyle Wiltjer scored to cut it to 61-58 before Hermanson iced it.
