Kelly Olynyk scored 14 points with nine rebounds, while Elias Harris added 12 points and five boards for the Bulldogs (27-2, 14-0 WCC), who have reeled off 10 straight wins to take the top spot in the conference.

"We had a great weekend, especially on the defensive end," Gonzaga coach Mark Few said. "We did an unbelievable job of sticking to our assignments."

Chris Manresa had a game-high 19 points for the Toreros (13-16, 6-8), who have dropped their past four games.

An 8-2 run to start the second half gave the Bulldogs a 20-point lead and a 13-0 run later in the half, which saw the Toreros go over five minutes without a point, gave the team a 67-32 advantage after a Drew Barham 3-pointer with 9 1/2 minutes left.

Gonzaga cruised to the finish line from there, leading by as many as 37 points.
