ABOUT SAINT MARY’S (6-0): Coach Randy Bennett has taken the Gaels to the NCAA or NIT Tournament the last 10 years and he told reporters this may be his best yet: “Potentially we could be.” Jock Landale, a 6-11 junior center, gives Saint Mary’s a dependable inside force who leads the team in scoring (19.7), rebounds (9.0) and is shooting 76.1 percent from the field (tied for fourth in the nation). Hermanson (14.7) and junior guard Emmett Naar (10.3 points, 7.7 assists) also average in double figures for Gaels, who turn the ball over just nine times per game.
