With full control on second place in the West Coast Conference, Gonzaga focuses itself from one revenge game to another.

The Zags beat San Francisco over the weekend, avenging a loss to the Dons earlier in the season. Steve Gray finished with 19 points, Marquise Carter added 18 and Elias Harris scored 14.

The win was a good one for the team, and one that puts the Bulldogs one game behind the Gaels. It also gives the Zags some confidence in time for Thursday's game against the No. 1 team in the conference.

"It's a really big game, but I really think the pressure is on them a lot," said Carter. "We're going to go in and we're gong to play Gonzaga basketball like we've been doing these past few games and take pride in our defense and let our offense come to us and try to get a win out of there."

"It's really important to us. We're back on the road right now and we can beat teams that we lost to before," said Harris. "We've got a winning streak going on right now and I'm quite confident that we can beat Saint Mary's."

Thursday's game tips off at 8 p.m. on ESPN2.
