Wirth twins lead No. 18 Gonzaga women past Pacific

STOCKTON, Calif. (AP) — Jenn Wirth scored 15 points with seven rebounds, twin sister LeeAnne had 14 points with nine rebounds and No. 18 Gonzaga used a second-quarter blitz to cruise to their 13th straight win, 77-65 over Pacific on Thursday night.

Kayleigh Truong added 10 points and eight assists for the Bulldogs (14-2, 9-0 West Coast Conference), who used a 21-0 run in the second quarter to break the game open and led by 31 midway through the third.

Kaylin Randhawa led the Tigers (5-6, 3-5), who have lost 10-straight to the Zags, with 16 points. Randhawa and Lianna Tillman both scored nine points in the fourth quarter when Pacific hit 11 of 18 shots, including 5 of 6 3-pointers to make the final score respectable.

The Bulldogs were up 22-20 when Jenn Wirth hit a jumper to ignite a 21-0 run, which featured seven different scorers. After Valerie Higgins ended the nearly six-minute drought with a free throw, the Zags added a buzzer beating layup for a 45-21 lead at the break.

Pacific missed its last seven shots of the half and, with the carryover into the third quarter, went 10:37 between field goals.

Gonzaga, coming off a 58% road game, shot 57% in this one and had a 31-18 rebounding advantage.

Pacific, which lost 79-59 at Gonzaga, made all seven of its 3-pointers in the second half and shot 46% overall from the field.

Gonzaga plays at Saint Mary’s on Saturday and have a makeup game with BYU on Tuesday. Portland is at Pacific on Saturday.
