Spokane, WA (Sports Network) - Elias Harris scored 16 points and pulled down 18 rebounds to lead No. 19 Gonzaga to a 96-58 win over South Dakota at McCarthy Athletic Center.

Przemek Karnowski scored a game-high 20 points, Gary Bell had 16 and Sam Dower added 12 points and nine rebounds for the Bulldogs (3-0), who will next take on Clemson in the Old Spice Classic in Lake Buena Vista, FL on Thanksgiving.

"We will find out a lot about ourselves at this tournament," said Gonzaga coach Mark Few. "We will play a variety of different schemes from the different teams. We might play a slow down possession or a pressure defense, we might run or not run. Teams might try to trap us. That is why these preseason tournaments are good."
