Drew Timme scores 38 as No. 6 Gonzaga tops Pacific 99-90

STOCKTON, Calif. (AP) — Drew Timme scored 24 of his career-high 38 points in the second half, including 18 straight points during one stretch, and No. 6 Gonzaga pulled away in the closing minutes for a 99-90 win over Pacific. Gonzaga rebounded after seeing its 75-game home win streak come to an end with Thursday’s stunning loss to Loyola Marymount. It wasn’t the strongest defensive effort by the Bulldogs, but Timme and fellow forward Anton Watson were unstoppable on the interior. Watson added 16 points and 13 rebounds, and the Bulldogs outscored Pacific 58-38 in the paint. Jordan Ivy-Curry led five Pacific players in double figures with 17 points.
