SPOKANE, Wash. (AP)Killian Tillie scored 22 points and blocked four shots to help No. 2 Gonzaga beat Pacific 92-59 on Saturday night for its 13th straight victory.
Corey Kispert added 16 points and Filip Petrusev had 15 for Gonzaga (21-1, 7-0 West Coast). The Bulldogs also won their 35th consecutive home game, the longest streak in the nation.
Jahlil Tripp scored 21 points and Pierre Crockrell II added 10 for Pacific (15-8, 3-4), which is making strides under fourth-year coach Damon Stoudamire. The Tigers have lost 15 in a row to Gonzaga.
Petrusev, who leads Gonzaga in scoring and rebounding, was back in action after being helped off the floor when he suffered an ankle sprain early in the second half last Saturday against BYU.
Gonzaga made 10 of its first 12 shots to jump to a 24-9 lead in the first eight minutes. Tillie and Petrusev accounted for 17 of those points.
