SPOKANE, Wash. — A huge first quarter Saturday helped carry No. 20/20 Gonzaga to a big West Coast Conference win over the Santa Clara University women's basketball team, as the Bulldogs stayed steady over the final three quarters to down the Broncos, 78-61, inside the McCarthey Athletic Center.
No. 20/20 Gonzaga (16-2, 6-0 WCC) outscored Santa Clara (10-8, 1-4 WCC) 24-10 in the game's first 10 minutes. That run was powered by 6 of 8 3-pointers made in the quarter by the Bulldogs, including each of their first four made shots in the game. The Bulldogs started the game 5 for 5 from 3-point range.
