LAS VEGAS (CBS/AP) – Mitchell Young scored 17 points off the bench and freshman Stephen Holt added 15 to lead No. 1 seed Saint Mary’s to a 73-64 victory over No. 4 seed Santa Clara in the semifinals of the West Coast Conference tournament Sunday night.

The Gaels (24-7) will face Gonzaga in Monday’s championship game. Saint Mary’s is seeking its third straight WCC tournament title.
