The Gonzaga University men's basketball team celebrated "Senior Night" by defeating Loyola Marymount 86-67 and clinching at least a share of the West Coast Conference championship at the McCarthey Athletic Center on Saturday night, Feb. 15. 

The Zags (23-4, 13-1 WCC) were lead by Sam Dower Jr.'s 25 points and 15 rebounds in the final home game of his career. Kevin Pangos added 17 and Gary Bell Jr. added 14 points in the win. Senior Brian Bhaskar has been down in the pecking order all season and was celebrated as he made his only shot attempt of the game, a three-pointer. 

The Lions (11-16, 3-12) were lead by Anthony Ireland's 23 points, and Gabe Levin and Evan Payne combined for 34 points. But were out-rebounded 40-25 in the loss.

Gonzaga now faces a four-game road trip to end their season. Next up for the Zags is a trip to Provo, Utah to face Brigham Young and Tyler Hawes, on Thursday, Feb. 20.
