Recap: Portland vs. Gonzaga

Portland, OR (Sports Network) - Kelly Olynyk scored 21 points and pulled down eight rebounds to help No. 8 Gonzaga to a 71-49 win over Portland on Thursday.

Kevin Pangos scored 14 points while Elias Harris gave 10 points and nine rebounds for the Bulldogs (17-1, 4-0 WCC), who have won eight straight.

"To come down here and get a 20-point road win is nice," Gonzaga coach Mark Few said. "We have got some nice balance this year and we can call on a lot of guys."

Kevin Bailey had 16 points while Oskars Reinfelds added 12 points for the Pilots (8-11, 1-3), who have lost four of five.

Gonzaga led this game from start to finish as the team scored 16 of the first 18 points and Pangos' layup seven minutes in made it a 16-2 game.

Portland answered with the next eight points, but that was as close as the game got as the Bulldogs scored the next seven points and eventually took a 36-26 lead into the halftime break.

The Pilots briefly cut their deficit to eight points early in the second half, but Olynyk hit two straight baskets to get it back to double-digits.

Portland again got to within nine points after Ryan Nicholas hit a pair of free throws four minutes in, but Harris and Mike Hart followed with buckets and the Bulldogs' lead stayed in double-digits the rest of the way.
