Elias Harris scored 18 points and No. 17 Gonzaga beat Oklahoma 72-47 in a semifinal matchup Friday night at the Old Spice Classic. Kelly Olynyk, Gary Bell Jr., Kevin Pangos and Przemek Karnowski each had eight points for Gonzaga (5-0). Oklahoma (3-1) got 13 from Romero Osby. Isaiah Cousins had 10 points. Gonzaga will play Davidson, which beat West Virginia 63-60, in Sunday night's championship game. Oklahoma will close out the tourney Sunday against the Mountaineers. Consecutive long-range jumpers by Bell and Harris, who also had slammed in a rebound, gave Gonzaga a 43-25 lead three minutes into the second half. Pangos' 3-pointer extended the Zags' lead to 53-31 with 12 minutes to play. Olynyk had an in-close basket and David Stockton scored on a layup as Gonzaga built a 59-34 lead midway through the second half. Gonzaga got points from nine players - led by Bell with five - en route to a 32-22 halftime advantage. Stockton's fast-break layup in the final minute gave Gonzaga a 32-21 lead. Olynyk had a dunk and layup as Gonzaga went ahead 14-5 just over eight minutes into the game. Oklahoma trailed just 14-8 despite going 2 for 15 from the field during the opening 10 1-2 minutes of play. Steven Pledger's jumper cut the Sooners' deficit to 18-13 with eight minutes left in the half. Andrew Fitzgerald had a slam that got Oklahoma to 20-17 two minutes later. Pangos' jumper put Gonzaga up 25-19 four minutes before the intermission. The Zags, winners of the 2008 Old Spice Classic, have won all five games they have played in the tourney.
