Zags win first of two away games in overtime

Gonzaga 86 - San Francisco 79
End of Overtime @ War Memorial Gymnasium

SAN FRANCISCO, Cali. - Gonzaga kept its hopes alive today for another West Coast Conference title with an 86-to-79 overtime win over San Francisco.

Matt Bouldin and Derek Raivio led Gonzaga with 21 points apiece. Micah Downs added 16 points for the Bulldogs, who beat San Francisco for the ninth time in their last 10 trips to the Dons'
home court.

Bouldin missed a potential go-ahead free throw with 6 seconds left in regulation, but Gonzaga took charge with a 10-2 run to open the overtime period. Raivio hit six of Gonzaga's 10 free
throws in overtime.

It was the Bulldogs' second straight win after losing three of their previous four.

Antonio Kellogg had 26 points and seven rebounds to lead San Francisco.

Gonzaga is now 10-and-3 in the West Coast Conference. Still, Gonzaga doesn't control its chances for yet another Number One seed in the conference tournament. The Bulldogs have won or shared the last six West Coast regular-season titles.

They will probably be top-seeded this year only if they win at San Diego on Monday, and Santa Clara loses its last two games.
