SAN FRANCISCO -- Jorden Page scored 19 points, including three 3-pointers, to lead Saint Mary's to its 16th consecutive victory over San Francisco, 67-63 on Wednesday night.

But San Francisco pulled within 65-63 on Tim Derksen's three-point play with 6.1 seconds left. Page was fouled on the next possession and hit two free throws to seal the victory.
Cody Doolin led the Dons (9-13, 2-7) with 16 points, including four of San Francisco's eight 3-pointers, and De'End Parker scored 12. Cole Dickerson had nine points and 11 rebounds to improve upon his conference-leading average of 9.8 rebounds per game.
