SPOKANE, Wash. – The Gonzaga women's basketball team fired on all cylinders Thursday night, beating Saint Mary's 87-52 in a game shown live on SWX-TV. And on head coach Kelly Graves' birthday.

Courtney Vandersloot, who was named to the Wooden Award Top 20 list earlier in the week, scored a game-high 26 points for the Zags. She also had six assists, six steals and five rebounds.

"Courtney scored very well tonight," said Graves in a news release. "She shot the ball nicely and got into a very good groove. She is terrific and deserves to be on the Wooden Award list – just an incredible player who really set the tone tonight with her competitiveness and energy."

The Zags improved to 2-0 in conference play and 13-4 overall. The loss was the first one in conference play for the Gaels.

Gonzaga plays San Diego on Saturday at the McCarthey Athletic Center at 2 p.m. That game, also, will be broadcast live on SWX.
