SPOKANE, Wash. - The No. 23 Gonzaga men's basketball team survived Portland's second half surge to win 71-66 at the McCarthey Athletic Center on Wednesday, Feb. 5.

Late three's from David Stockton and Kevin Pangos broke an 0-for-6 run from behind the arc and gave the necessary cushion to secure the win.
