SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - David Pendergraft scored 17 points to lead Gonzaga to an 83-63 victory over San Francisco on Saturday.
Dior Lowhorn, who entered the game as the WCC's leading scorer with a 20.8 average, scored a game-high 20 points for USF (6-19, 2-8). He made 8 of 11 shots from the field.
Gonzaga, which travels to play WCC contender San Diego in a pivotal conference game on Monday, led by as many as 26 points, and never trailed after scoring the game's first points.
The Bulldogs spread the offense throughout their roster in the first half with 10 players scoring from two to seven points. They shot 60 percent in the first half.
After USF pulled to within eight points with 5:30 remaining in the half, the Bulldogs went on a 13-4 run for a 49-29 halftime lead.
Pendergraft and Steven Gray scored seven points apiece in the first half to pace Gonzaga's balanced offense. Gray led the Bulldogs with six rebounds.
USF senior Vince Polakovic scored a career-high 18 points and had six rebounds for the Dons.
The Dons fall to 2-11 since Eddie Sutton took over as interim head coach in December after Jessie Evans' announced leave of absence.
