MORAGA, Calif. – Gonzaga never trailed in the gym of their rival Saint Mary’s on Saturday. Killian Tillie returned to the court after missing two games due to a left ankle sprain, and poured in 19 points against the Gaels as Gonzaga earned a 90-60 victory Saturday night.

The Zags shot just under 68% from the floor in the game, freshman Drew Timme earned a team-high and new career-high 20 points on 7-of-8 shooting.

Filip Petrusev earned his seventh double-double of the season, with an 18-pt, 11 rebound night where the Bulldogs led by as much as 34 in the second half.

Defensively, they limited SMC to just 4-of-14 from three-point range. Jordan Forde led the Gaels with 23 points, Malik Fitts chipped in 12. Those were the only two players in double figures for Saint Mary’s.

Gonzaga improves to 11-0 in the WCC and 25-1 on the year. They have Thursday off before playing Pepperdine Saturday in Malibu at 7 p.m.
