Player of the game: Gonzaga guard Kevin Pangos had the key basket of the day, a three with 1:54 left, and finished with 16 points, five assists and one turnover in 38 minutes.
Key to the game: The Zags finally shed the gutty Jaguars by getting key perimeter contributions against a defense that was geared to stop big men Kelly Olynyk and Elias Harris.
Turning point: Gary Bell Jr.’s trey with 3:21 broke a 56-all tie and gave Gonzaga the lead for good, and Pangos followed with his dagger from the corner.
Quotable: “No, never in my mind, I didn’t think we were going to lose this game. We always battle.” — Bell, asked if he ever thought the Zags were in danger of losing.
