Gonzaga Men Win WCC Opener

MALIBU, Calif. (AP) - Elias Harris scored 18 points and Kelly Olynk had 16 to lead No. 10 Gonzaga to a 78-62 victory over Pepperdine on Thursday night in the a West Coast Conference opener for both teams.

Olynk scored 14 points in the second half as the Bulldogs (14-1, 1-0 WCC) won despite shooting a season-low 43.4 percent from the field. Reserve guard David Stockton added nine points and four steals and Kevin Pangos scored nine points. 

Pangos gave Gonzaga the lead for good at 38-36 on a 3-pointer and the Bulldogs pulled away to their 23rd consecutive win against Pepperdine, its longest streak against a conference opponent. 

Lorne Jackson led the Waves (8-6, 0-1) with 16 points and Jordan Baker had 15.

The Bulldogs continue on the road to Santa Clara this Saturday. Game time is 5:00 pm. That game will be televised on KAYU Fox 28.
