Gonzaga clinches WCC with 70-53 win over Pacific
Question of the Day
Dower Jr., the Bulldogs’ leading scorer, was also slowed by fouls and had just six points.
Gonzaga had no problem picking up the defensive slack and forced 16 turnovers - 10 in the first half - and got a big lift from Barham off the bench.
Barham made four 3-pointers to keep the Bulldogs rolling. He scored eight consecutive points to push the Bulldogs lead to 64-43 in the second half.
“We wanted to be more aggressive and just have fun,” said Barham, who went 5 of 7 from the floor. “After you lose you get bogged down and coming out we wanted to be aggressive.”
Pacific, which matched its longest losing streak of the season at four, couldn’t keep up.
Playing before their largest crowd at the Spanos Center since 2005, the Tigers got off to a sluggish start then briefly took the lead midway through the first half before losing to Gonzaga for the fifth time in six meetings between the two schools.
It marked the fourth straight game Pacific has been held under 60 points.
Gonzaga held Pacific scoreless for the first five minutes but led only 12-11 after Karnowski picked up his second foul midway through the first half.
Pangos scored on three quick layups and made a trio of free throws as part of a 13-0 run that put Gonzaga up for good. He later added a pair of threes that helped the Bulldogs go up 40-28 at halftime.
