Gonzaga rolls over Pepperdine for WCC title

AP Sports Writer

LAS VEGAS - Courtney Vandersloot scored 19 points, Heather Bowman added 14 and No. 18 Gonzaga rolled to its 17th straight victory, 76-48 over Pepperdine on Monday in the West Coast Conference tournament final.

Kayla Standish had 10 points for the Zags (27-4), who thoroughly dominated the conference with a 14-0 regular-season run followed by tournament blowouts of Santa Clara and Pepperdine at the Orleans Arena.

Lauren Bell scored 16 points for the Waves (20-11), whose otherwise successful season included three one-sided losses to Gonzaga, the nation's fifth highest-scoring team. Pepperdine got off to a 3-for-20 shooting start and never seriously threatened the Zags, who have won six straight regular-season conference titles.
