STOCKTON, Calif. — Things were much tougher than expected, but no. 1 Gonzaga pulls away late to win comfortably over Pacific 76-58 Thursday¬† night.

For just the second time this season, Gonzaga trailed at the half, and the deficit grew to seven points with 15 minutes remaining in the game.

From there, Gonzaga took over thanks to Drew Timme, Jalen Suggs, and Corey Kispert having big second halves.

Timme finishes with 21 points to lead the way, Suggs had 19, and Kispert has 12 of his 14 after halftime.

With the win, Gonzaga improves to 18-0 on the season, and 9-0 in the WCC.
