THE LADY ZAGS

The Gonzaga University Bulldogs (15-13, 10-3 WCC) won their fifth straight game on Thursday night with a 58-51 decision over the University of San Diego (8-18, 3-10 WCC) at Jenny Craig Pavilion. With the win and a Loyola Marymount University win over Santa Clara University earlier in the evening, the Bulldogs moved into a three-way tie for first place in the WCC standings with one game remaining.

Trailing 51-50 with 1:02 remaining, Gonzaga continued to work the ball into the low post drawing fouls against a much smaller USD line-up. The Bulldogs hit 9-of-10 from the line over the last 1:02 to score the final nine points of the game and walk away with their third straight road win. Stephanie Hawk hit four of the final free throws as she finished a dominating performance with 19 points and a career-high 15 rebounds. She was 7-of-7 from the line. Juliann Laney also knocked down three free throws and Ashley Anderson added two in the last minute of action.

The Gonzaga University women's basketball team is once again a champion of the West Coast Conference as the Bulldogs won at the University of San Francisco on Saturday afternoon to clinch a share of the regular-season WCC title with Santa Clara University. Gonzaga (16-13, 11-3 WCC) won 71-53 over San Francisco (8-19, 4-10 WCC) spoiling the Dons senior day game. Gonzaga will be the No. 2 seed in the WCC Tournament which starts on Thursday afternoon at the McCarthey Athletic Center. The Bulldogs lost the tie-breaker with the Broncos by virtue of their season record against fourth place finisher Pepperdine University.

Gonzaga had its best shooting night in nearly a month as the Bulldogs connected for 51 percent from the floor with four players hitting in double figures. Stephanie Hawk led the way with 17 points while Katy Ridenour had 15, Anne Bailey 14 and Ashley Anderson 12.

THE MEN

J.P. Batista had 26 points and 11 rebounds and No. 5 Gonzaga held off stubborn San Diego 75-59 on Saturday night to win its 37th consecutive home game, longest streak in the nation.

Derek Raivio's scoring seems to be back.


Adam only scored 11 but excelled in other areas.


The return of Josh Heytvelt is making a difference.

Adam Morrison scored 34 points, but it was his assist on Pierre Marie Altidor-Cespedes' 3-pointer with 1 second left that lifted No. 5 Gonzaga to a 75-72 victory over San Francisco on Monday night, completing the Bulldogs' second undefeated run through the West Coast Conference in three years.

Morrison scored 17 points over the final 11:43 as Gonzaga (25-3, 14-0) won its 16th straight game, tying No. 7 George Washington for the longest streak in the nation. The Bulldogs won their 38th consecutive home game, easily the longest such streak in the nation and a school record.
