Results, highlights, and box score stats from the college basketball game between No. 1 Gonzaga and Pacific in the West Coast Conference. The Bulldogs stayed perfect this season with a 95-49 victory over the Tigers on Saturday.

Timme Leads Way For Gonzaga

Drew Timme scored 22 points, and made 8 of 11 shots with seven rebounds, while Corey Kispert added 16 points and seven boards for Gonzaga (15-0, 6-0 WCC), which was winning at home for the 47th consecutive time.

Joel Ayayi scored 12 points with four rebounds, Dominick Harris ended with 11 points and freshman Jalen Suggs flirted with a triple-double to finish with nine points, 11 rebounds, and eight assists for the Bulldogs, who were improving the longest streak in the nation for successive home wins.

Bulldogs More Focus This Time

After a relatively close win against Pepperdine and Saint Mary’s last week, the Zags responded in the right way.

“We came in more focused,” said Timme. “We did a great job responding.”

“We challenged them a little bit,” Gonzaga coach Mark Few said. “We let our guard down in both games last week.”

Daniss Jenkins paced Pacific with 17 points and made 7 of 15 shots, while Pierre Crockrell II scored 11 points.

Jordan Bell and Jonathan Salazar each had six points and seven rebounds and Broc Finstuen grabbed six boards for the Tigers (5-3, 2-2), who lost two in a row.

Gonzaga got off to a strong start to lead 52-21 at halftime. The Bulldogs controlled the game for the entire night and held Pacific to just 27.9% shooting.

“I thought we really challenged every shot tonight,” Few said. “The way we beat them on the glass (50-37) was a good sign also.”
