Bell, Coleman lead No. 11 Gonzaga past Coppin St 86-51

Posted: Updated:

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - Gary Bell Jr. scored 15 points to lead No. 11 Gonzaga to an 86-51 victory over Coppin State on Sunday night.

 

Reserves Gerard Coleman added 14 and Kyle Dranginis 12 for Gonzaga (7-1), which posted its largest margin of victory this season.

 

Arnold Fripp and Sterling Smith had 10 points apiece for cold-shooting Coppin State (2-5), which lost to a ranked team for the second time in three nights following a 42-point defeat at Michigan.

 

Dranginis scored on a transition basket and a 3-pointer on consecutive possessions to spark a Gonzaga surge midway through the first half that put the Bulldogs ahead 27-7. The Eagles scored just a single field goal in a stretch of more than 11 minutes, missing 19 of their first 24 shots, and trailed 39-14 at halftime.

 

Sam Dower Jr. added 11 points and eight rebounds for Gonzaga.
