No. 24 Gonzaga Vs. San Francisco: Dons Pull Off Upset, Contribute To WCC Chaos

The standings in the West Coast Conference are officially a mess. The Gonzaga Bulldogs were expected to push back into a tie for first place on Saturday night, but fell to the San Francisco Dons, who pulled off a 66-65 upset victory.

From start to finish, the game was close, with neither team able to take control. USF had four of its starters score in double figures, while Gonzaga got 21 points from Elias Harris and 16 points from Gary Bell. Kevin Pangos and Bell both started on the bench, but went on to play 30 and 39 minutes respectively.

The Bulldogs won the battle on the boards by a wide margin, but turnovers were their undoing. Gonzaga turned the ball over 21 times to USF's 10, as the Dons made an impressive 14 steals.

Gonzaga is now 11-3 in the WCC and trails the Saint Mary's Gaels by one game. The Brigham Young Cougars trail by one game as well, while the Loyola Marymount Lions are two games back. San Francisco is 8-7 in the WCC.
