SPOKANE, Wash. -

No doubt, it is a good time to be a Bulldog fan. Gonzaga finished off another West Coast Conference sweep last week, stretching their win streak to eight games. And they just keep getting better.

The Zags have a one-and-a-half game lead over Saint Mary's for first place in the conference. They play the Gaels at home on Thursday.

"At the beginning of the year we weren't playing very well," said guard Taelor Karr. "I think it's a testament to the younger kids figuring things out, and all of us getting our team chemistry together."

Swagger, indeed.
