No. 6 Gonzaga beats Pepperdine 82-56
GONZAGA 82, PEPPERDINE 56

By NICHOLAS K. GERANIOS

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) -- Kevin Pangos saw that unranked Illinois
had beaten No. 1 Indiana on Thursday night, and wasn't about to
let the same fate befall No. 6 Gonzaga.



Pangos scored 14 points as Gonzaga pounded Pepperdine 82-56 on
Thursday night for its 24th consecutive victory over the Waves.



"We don't relax for any game," Pangos said. "I saw today that
Illinois beat Indiana. It happens. We can't let that happen to
us."



Kelly Olynyk added 13 points for Gonzaga (22-2, 9-0 West Coast),
which has won five straight since losing at Butler.



Stacy Davis scored 16 points to lead Pepperdine (10-13, 2-8),
which has lost four straight games. Nikolas Skouen added 12
points.



In their first meeting, Pepperdine led by a point with 14
minutes left before losing 78-62. But this one was over early,
as Gonzaga made 12 3-pointers and the Waves committed 21
turnovers.



Gonzaga won despite a sluggish offensive performance. The
Bulldogs shot 44.8 percent in the game and held Pepperdine to
36.2 percent.



"Offense can be up and down," Pangos said. "Defensively, if we
can get that performance every single game, we are tough to
beat."



Gonzaga made 12 of 27 3-point attempts and 18 of 24 free throws.



"We probably didn't have the same offensive rhythm as some of
our games," coach Mark Few said.



Gonzaga scored the first 10 points of the game and Pepperdine
was scoreless for the first 5 minutes. The Waves committed nine
turnovers in the first 8 minutes to fall behind 14-2.



"It got out of hand with all our turnovers in the first half,"
Pepperdine coach Marty Wilson said. "That was the key and that's
been our Achilles heel all season."



Skouen hit two 3-pointers as Pepperdine broke the ice and cut
Gonzaga's lead to 17-10. But Drew Barham and Gary Bell Jr.
replied with 3-pointers and Gonzaga was soon leading by 15
points.



Gonzaga led 35-20 at halftime despite shooting only 37 percent
from the field. Pepperdine shot just 27 percent (6 of 22) in the
first half, and committed 15 turnovers to five for Gonzaga.



"That was one thing we talked about at halftime, despite the 15
turnovers, holding them to 10 baskets and 37 percent on their
home court," Wilson said.



Pepperdine picked up the tempo early in the second half,
matching baskets with Gonzaga, but couldn't make up any ground
as the Bulldogs led 44-29 with 15:35 left.



Consecutive 3-pointers by Barham and Pangos launched an 11-0 run
that put Gonzaga up 58-32.



Kyle Dranginis' 3-pointer, the 11th of the game for Gonzaga, put
the Bulldogs up 66-36 and the Waves did not threaten again.



Dranginis finished with 11 points and Przemek Karnowski had 10
for Gonzaga.



Pepperdine's last win over Gonzaga was in 2002 in Malibu. The
Waves have not won in Spokane since 1998.



This is Gonzaga's best start since the 2003-04 team started
28-2.



Gonzaga is 116-8 in the McCarthey Athletic Center since it
opened in 2004.
