MALIBU, Calif. (AP) -- Josh Heytvelt scored a season-high 25 points and Matt Bouldin delivered a career-high 10 assists as No. 23 Gonzaga remained perfect in the West Coast Conference by beating Pepperdine 83-69 on Thursday night.

Heytvelt, who had six points in the Bulldogs last game, scored the team's first nine points and made his first five field goal attempts. He was two points shy of his career high.
