Spokane, WA (SportsNetwork.com) - David Stockton netted 21 points to lead No. 24 Gonzaga to a 74-60 win over Santa Clara on Saturday.

Kevin Pangos scored 17 and Przemek Karnowski added 10 points and eight rebounds for the Bulldogs (11-2, 1-0 WCC), who have won seven of their last eight.

Brandon Clark scored a game-high 22 points for Santa Clara (7-7, 0-1), which has lost two of its last three. Jared Brownridge and Evan Roquemore added 12 and 11 points, respectively.

The game was tied 38-38 just under four minutes into the second half before the Bulldogs ripped off eight straight points.

A Jalen Richard free throw pulled Santa Clara within 53-50 with 8:14 to play, but Gonzaga answered with a 10-0 run to create some separation.

Santa Clara failed to get closer than nine the rest of the way.
