Associated Press  |  Last updated January 26, 2013
Kelly Olynyk scored 13 points, helping No. 10 Gonzaga extended its home winning streak against San Francisco to 24 games with a 66-52 victory on Saturday night. Elias Harris had 12 points and 11 rebounds for Gonzaga (19-2, 6-0 West Coast Conference) and Kevin Pangos added 11 points. Gonzaga made 45 percent of its shots and was 8 of 20 from 3-point range. Chris Adams led San Francisco (9-12, 2-6) with nine points and Avry Holmes scored eight. The Dons turned the ball over 17 times and were 9 of 24 from behind the arc. Gonzaga built a 43-21 halftime lead, but started out sloppy in the second half. The Bulldogs made only one basket in the first four minutes. San Francisco connected on three 3-pointers, two by Adams, in the first six minutes and pulled to 50-34. The home crowd went quiet after the Bulldogs missed 8 of 11 shots to start the second half. But Dons weren't able to capitalize. San Francisco struggled to put together back-to-back baskets and Gonzaga held on. The first half was much smoother for Gonzaga. Pangos scored six of Gonzaga's first 13 points and the Bulldogs built an early 13-7 lead. San Francisco managed to pull to 18-17 but Gonzaga's Drew Barham hit two 3-pointers during an 11-2 run to extend the lead. The Bulldogs were consistently left open outside of the 3-point line. Gonzaga was 6 of 12 from beyond the arc in the first half. Harris and Gary Bell Jr. made 3-pointers during a 14-2 run, pushing Gonzaga's lead to 41-21. The Bulldogs did not allow a point to the Dons in the final six minutes of the half. Gonzaga made 58 percent of its shots in the first half and held San Francisco to 7-of-22 shooting. Gonzaga controlled the paint, holding a 37-33 rebounding advantage. The Dons have been outrebounded in eight straight games. The Bulldogs committed a season-high 19 turnovers in 83-63 win against BYU on Thursday. They had eight versus the Dons. Ten players saw time for Gonzaga. Freshman Kyle Dranginis made his first career start. San Francisco has not beaten Gonzaga in Spokane since the 1988-89 season. The Bulldogs have lost their last three games at San Francisco. Those three losses were by a combined 10 points. Gonzaga improved to 115-8 in the McCarthey Athletic Center since opening in 2004.
