SPOKANE, Wash. -- Patty Mills, the leading scorer for Saint Mary's (No. 22 AP), left Thursday night's 69-62 loss to Gonzaga (No. 25 ESPN/USA Today, No. 20 AP) late in the first half with a sprained right wrist.

Mills scored 18 points in the first half, matching his season average, as the Gaels took a 39-33 lead.

He left the game with about 3 minutes left in the half after a hard fall, and had his wrist examined on the sideline. Mills tried to take a couple of shots in warmups, did not start the second half and was sitting on the bench with a bag of ice on his right hand.

St Mary's coach Randy Bennett said he did not yet know the extent of Mills' injury. He is averaging 18 points per game and has scored in double figures in all 20 games this season.

"His wrist is hurting," Bennett said.
