The Gonzaga Bulldogs are off to a strong start with their 2012 WCC in-conference play. They hosted the Pepperdine Waves on Thursday night and walked away with the easy 73-45 win. The victory takes the Zags to an overall record of 12-2 and the team is now 2-0 in WCC action.
The Waves did not put up much of a fight, as could have been predicted by their 7-6 overall record entering the game. The Zags opened up a 38-20 lead by halftime and didn't need to work terribly hard to keep Pepperdine at bay for the rest of the evening.
The Bulldogs did a fine job of spreading the ball around as four of their starting five ended up scoring double digits. Center Robert Sacre barely missed recording a double-double with 11 points and nine rebounds. Gary Bell led all scorers with 15 points, including going 3-for-6 from the three-point line.
Gonzaga's next game will take place on Saturday, January 7, as they host the Santa Clara Broncos.
