    MALIBU, Calif. -- Sam Dower was perfect from the field and scored 18 points as Gonzaga bounced back from having its 22-game conference win streak snapped by routing Pepperdine in a first-place showdown, 70-53 Thursday night.

    Dower converted all seven of his field goal attempts and was 4 of 5 from the line with eight rebounds to lead the Bulldogs (15-3, 5-1 West Coast). Kevin Pangos finished with 14 points for Gonzaga.

    Pepperdine took a 10-5 lead on Amadi Udenui's 3 early in the first half, but Kyle Dranginis gave the Zags the lead for good with a layup with 9:36 left to make it 20-18 and sparking a 21-3 run.

    Stacy Davis was the lone player to score in double figures (12) for Pepperdine (11-8, 4-3).

    Gonzaga now has won 25 straight against the Waves and lead the all-time series 45-31. The last time Pepperdine beat Gonzaga was January 18, 2002.
