SPOKANE — Hot-shooting Gonzaga routed San Francisco 101-65 in a West Coast Conference women's basketball game Saturday, extending its winning streak to 10 games.
Gonzaga shot a season-high 55 percent from the field and scored in triple digits for the first time since putting up 101 against Hofstra in November 2011.
Sunny Greinacher led the Zags (22-5 overall, 12-1 WCC) with 15 points on 7-for-8 shooting. Gonzaga reserve Stephanie Golden scored 14 points on 7-for-10 shooting.
Golden, a 6-foot-3 junior, had 13 points in Thursday's 69-54 victory over Saint Mary's.
"I've just got my mojo back," she said. "I've just really been working on playing confidently and assertively in practice, and it has just been carrying over to the games."
Shelby Cheslek, who is from Pullman, had eight points and a team-high eight rebounds for the Zags, who had a 46-23 advantage on the boards.
Taylor Proctor scored 19 points for the Dons (10-16, 3-10), who have lost the last 14 times they have played Gonzaga.
Zags coach Kelly Graves was asked if his team is peaking at the right time.
"We have been playing well, no question about it," Graves replied. "I don't know about peaking because I don't know how good this team can be.
"I think we're still proving it ... we're still improving. I just think we still have a high ceiling; we can still get better. I'll never let them rest, I guarantee you that."
