MORAGA, Calif. (AP) Kerry Carter led Saint Mary's with 19 points as the Gaels coasted past NAIA member William Jessup 84-46 on Monday.

Saint Mary's (12-4) shot 55 percent from the floor, including 11 of 24 (46 percent) from beyond the arc. Treaven Duffy had 13 points while Brad Waldow and Eividas Petrulis added 11 for the Gaels. 

William Jessup got 11 points from Caleb Richey and was held to 27 percent shooting, hitting just 7 of 27 on 3-pointers.

Jessup led 5-0 through the first 4:20 of the game. The official TV timeout at 15:40 seemed to wake up Saint Mary's, as it went on a 15-3 run en route to a 36-20 halftime advantage to take control of the game.

The Gaels poured it on in the second half, after an 18-0 run opened the score up. William Jessup went 5:32 early in the frame without scoring.
