SPOKANE, Wash. _ Tyreke Evans scored 22 points as No. 14 Memphis beat No. 18 Gonzaga 68-50 on Saturday in a showdown of teams dominating their conference races and seeking more national attention.

Robert Dozier added 18 points and 10 rebounds for Memphis (20-3), whose 14-game winning streak is second longest in the nation. Micah Downs scored 13 points to lead Gonzaga (17-5), which saw its nine-game winning streak snapped.
The Zags were hurt by 36 percent shooting and 15 turnovers.
