Posted: Updated:

SPOKANE, Wash. - The Bulldogs defended their spot atop the West Coast Conference as they beat St. Mary's, starting  a four-game homestand by earning their 50th victory at home. Derek Raivio and Matt Bouldin each scored 12 points as Gonzaga beat Saint Mary's 60-49 tonight. Gonzaga was playing without suspended forward and second-leading scorer Josh Heytvelt. But the Zags remain tied atop the West Coast Conference.

Gonzaga (18-8, 8-2 WCC) extended its home court win streak to 50 games, hitting 25-of-54 from the floor, while Saint Mary's (13-13, 5-5) shot 20-of-47.

Jeremy Pargo had 11 points for the Zags.

Gonzaga missed Heitvelt's 15.5 points, 7.7 rebounds and 1.7 blocks per game, but threw a pressing defense at the Gaels, who went scoreless for long chunks of time. Abdullahi Kuso, a 6'9" junior, started in place of Heytvelt and finished with 4 points and one rebound.
