Solid effort

Beau Levesque (15), a De La Salle High graduate and Lafayette native, is having a strong senior season for the Saint Mary's College men's basketball team. Levesque, a starting forward, is averaging 11.3 points and 5.7 rebounds entering the Gaels' West Coast Conference opener against Pacific on Dec. 30. Saint Mary's started off the season by going 9-0, but took a step back by dropping all three of their games at the Diamond Head Classic in Hawaii during Christmas week. They currently are in the middle of a busy week, which also includes road games at Gonzaga and Portland.
