Gonzaga Rips EWU in Home Return, 94-52

SPOKANE, Wash. - The Gonzaga Bulldogs returned to the McCarthey Athletic Center for their first home game since December 9th and didn't miss a beat Monday night, cruising past Eastern Washington, 94-52.  

The Zags (9-3), who had been bumped from the latest Associated Press poll but rose to #22 in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll, took out their frustration on a struggling Eagles team (4-10) that has now dropped five in a row.   

Eastern connected on just 28.8 percent of their shots from the field in the game, while the Bulldogs shot at a 50 percent clip -- including a 45.8 percentage from behind the three-point line. The Eagles were just 4-of-24 behind the arc for 16.7 percent and were out-rebounded 56-35.

The Eagles had nine turnovers in the first seven minutes of the game and finished with 16 in the first half. Gonzaga took full advantage of those turnovers, as 24 of their 53 points came off turnovers as the Bulldogs led by 28 at intermission.

"It wasn't very good -- we turned the ball over 16 times in the first half," said Eastern head coach Kirk Earlywine of his team's performance. "They treated us like a little brother in the backyard, and I mean that as a credit to Gonzaga. Physically they were more aggressive than we were. That's the way I wanted us to be."

The Eagles jumped out to a quick 5-1 lead at the 18:12 mark after Mark Dunn connected on a long three-pointer, but the Bulldogs responded by going on two separate 13-0 runs to go into halftime with a 53-25 lead.

Freshman Elias Harris led all scorers with 22 points on 9-of-11 shooting, as GU's freshman class combined to score 56 points for the ballgame.  The Zags have just two days off before hosting Oklahoma on New Year's Eve Spokane Veterans Memorial Arena.
