Recap: Gonzaga vs. West Virginia

Spokane, WA (Sports Network) - Gary Bell, Jr. buried three 3-pointers en route to a game-high 15 points on Monday night, as No. 19 Gonzaga cruised to an 84-50 triumph over West Virginia at McCarthey Athletic Center.

Guy Landry Edi followed with 14 points, while Kevin Pangos and Elias Harris added 13 and 11 points, respectively, for the Bulldogs (2-0), who were coming off a 38-point victory over Southern Utah in their season opener on Friday.

"It was a great performance from our guys," Gonzaga coach Mark Few said. "That was a very physical and athletic team that plays extremely hard. We took care of the ball against a team that pressures you all over the floor and we were able to shoot 52 percent at the end of the day, which is a good thing."

Aaric Murray paced the Mountaineers with 14 points and Jabarie Hinds added nine points for West Virginia (0-1), which has lost back-to-back games to Gonzaga after falling to the Bulldogs in the second round of last year's NCAA tournament.

"It's embarrassing," said West Virginia coach Bob Huggins. "I care way too much about this University, the program and the state for this to happen. It's my job to fix it and I've got to fix it."

West Virginia held a 2-1 lead on a Murray layup 90 seconds into the game, but the Bulldogs scored the next 16 points and never looked back.

The lead touched 22 later in the first half on Bell's 3-pointer and peaked at 27 thanks to another Bell triple with 37 seconds remaining to send Gonzaga into the locker room holding a 45-18 advantage.

West Virginia ripped off a 12-3 run early in the second half to pull within 50-32, but Harris answered with a trey at the other end to spark a 7-0 run and press Gonzaga's advantage to 25.

The Bulldogs' lead never dipped below 20 the rest of the way as they cruised to the double-digit victory.
