Rui Hachimura led all scorers with 23 points on 10-14 shooting, as the Zags finished the game with four players in double figures.

This was a statement win for the Bulldogs who lost to Saint Mary's 74-71 on Jan. 18. This is the Gaels first loss since they played Georgia in the Wooden Legacy on Nov. 26.
