The Saint Mary’s men’s basketball team is looking to follow up on a strong 2008-09 season. So far, so good. The Gaels have played two games so far this season, winning both impressively at home in McKeon Pavillion.
On Friday, Nov. 13, the Gaels beat New Mexico State, 100-68. They followed that up with an 80-58 victory over San Diego State. Their next game is Friday night when they host Vanderbilt at 8:30 p.m.
The Saint Mary’s women’s basketball team is also off to a strong start. The Lady Gaels won their first two games against Chico State, 78-55, and Idaho State, 76-69.
Their best game so far may have been their third game. Despite losing the game, 68-65, the Lady Gaels played tough and nearly pulled off the upset against a strong Cal team in Berkeley.
The Lady Gaels host Nevada on Friday at 5:30 p.m.
