Gonzaga’s Perfect Season Marches On, Bulldogs Trample Trojans 85-66

The USC Trojans really never stood a chance. Gonzaga jumped out to a big lead and never gave it up.

Drew Timme led the way with 23 points in the wire-to-wire win. The Bulldogs led by as many as 24 points.

It was a 19-point game at halftime (49-30), and it finished as a 19-point Zags victory, 85-66.

Corey Kispert and Jalen Suggs each scored 18 to also help Gonzaga improve to 30-0 as the quest for a perfect season inches closer to its goal.

For USC, the Mobley brothers led the way again. Isaiah Mobley scored a team-high 19 points, while Evan Mobley was close behind with 17.

The Trojans were abysmal compared to the Zags shooting-wise. Gonzaga’s defense deserves a ton of credit.

USC shot 24-of-62 (38.7 percent) from the field, while the Bulldogs shot 33-of-66 (50 percent). From deep, the Zags shot 7-for-21 (33.3 percent) and the Trojans only hit 4-for-15.

USC (25-8, 15-5 Pac-12) fell short of the Pac-12 regular season title (based on win percentage). However, for the second straight season, and the fifth time in six seasons, the Trojans finished with at least 20 wins.

Gonzaga (30-0, 15-0) will face either UCLA or Michigan in the Final Four on Saturday.
