SPOKANE, Wash. - Austin Daye scored a career high 25 points as Gonzaga beat San Francisco 85-50 on Saturday night to remain undefeated in the West Coast Conference.

Micah Downs added 15 for Gonzaga, which won its fourth straight game and has blown out all three of its WCC rivals so far. They beat Santa Clara by 42 points on Thursday, as Daye scored 20. Daye made 10-of-14 shots, and added nine rebounds. His previous high was 22 points against Arizona this season.

Dior Lowhorn led San Francisco with 15, five below his WCC-leading average. The Dons have lost seven of their past eight games, and four in a row.

The Bulldogs showed a much-improved defensive game, holding San Francisco to just six field goals in the second half.

"That says a lot about our defense," said Gonzaga guard Matt Bouldin.  "We work so hard on that, and that's one of our big goals - to have a low shooting percentage for the other team.  I think we really came through tonight."

Gonzaga's next two games are on the road.  They play at Pepperdine on Thursday, followed by match-up with Loyola Marymount in Los Angeles on Saturday.  They return to the McCarthey Athletic Center January 29 against Saint Mary's.
