Saint Mary's dominates Pacific for 74-46 victory

MORAGA, Calif. (AP) Beau Levesque tied the career high he set earlier this season against the same opponent, scoring 18 points off the bench Wednesday to help Saint Mary's beat Pacific 74-46.

Levesque, a junior, made all five of his shots, including three 3-pointers, for the Gaels (8-2). He also scored 18 on Nov. 23 in a 76-66 loss to Pacific in the DirecTV Classic in Anaheim, Calif.

Leading scorer Matthew Dellavedova added 17 points and eight assists for Saint Mary's, and Mitchell Young had 11 points and eight rebounds.

Khalil Kelley scored 11 to lead the Tigers (5-6), who scored the game's first four points but saw Saint Mary's respond with a 15-1 run and cruise from there. The Gaels led 36-17 at halftime and got their biggest lead on Jordan Giusti's layup in the final minute.

Saint Mary's outrebounded Pacific 44-24, and the Tigers shot just 33 percent from the field.

Bradley Beal ejected from Wizards season opener

Bradley Beal ejected from Wizards season opener

Down seven points with almost a minute left in the fourth quarter, Bradley Beal was ejected from the Wizards-Mavericks game at American Airlines Center.

Beal was initially fouled on a play against Kristaps Porzingis. The Wizards guard received his first of back-to-back technicals after ensuing contact with Mavs guard Luka DonÄŤić, where they both were given technical fouls. Beal clapped at the assessment and waved off the referees as they doled out a second technical foul and ejected him from the game. 

We like this explanation much better. Ultimately, the Wizards lost 108-100 in Dallas to open their 2019 NBA season.

Beal was previously ejected in Game 4, Round 1 of the 2018 NBA Playoffs, spurring the Wizards to tie the series 2-2 against the eventual NBA Champions, Toronto Raptors.

Scott Brooks just used the first challenge in Wizards history

Scott Brooks just used the first challenge in Wizards history

The Wizards debuted their new rotation for the 2019 season Wednesday night in Dallas against the Mavericks, and Scott Brooks decided to take advantage of the newest league rule.

With 6:57 left in the third quarter, Ish Smith was called for a shooting foul and Brooks thought otherwise. 

While the challenge was unsuccessful and the call stood, knowing that the possibility of an overturned call is out there this season should make for some interesting moments.
