SPOKANE, Wash. — After a slower start than we are used to seeing, the Gonzaga Bulldogs got things going late in the first half on the way to a 78-62 win over San Francisco Thursday night in the McCarthey Athletic Center.

Chet Holmgren had one of his best games of his short career with 22 points, 9 rebounds and 4 blocks.

The Dons were not afraid of the nations top-ranked team and quickly built a double-digit lead on the road.

Drew Timme had a rough first half making just 1 of 8 shots, but responded in the second half finishing with 23 points.

With the win, Gonzaga improves to 15-2 on the season and 4-0 in the West Coast Conference.

Next up for the Zags is another home game next Thursday when they host LMU.
