    EUGENE, Ore. -- Omar Samhan scored 22 points, Matt Dellavedova added 21 and Saint Mary's held off a late Oregon rally to beat the Ducks 81-76 Saturday.

    Clint Steindl also scored 14 for the Gaels (7-1), and Dellavedova had nine points in the final 3 minutes after Oregon had cut Saint Mary's nine-point lead to one.

    Malcolm Armstead scored 14 for the Ducks (4-4), who led 34-33 at halftime. E.J. Singler added 12 points and Michael Dunigan had 10.

    Saint Mary's led 68-59 with 5:41 remaining before Oregon went on an 8-0 run to cut it to 68-67 with 3:22 left. But Dellavedova hit his third 3-pointer of the game to put Saint Mary's up 71-67 and the Gaels went 10 for 10 from the foul line in the final 1:25 to secure the victory.

    While Oregon shot better from the field -- 50 percent to 47 percent -- the Ducks made just 12 of 21 free throws while the Gaels were 20 of 24 from the line.
