MALIBU, Calif. — Kevin Pangos and Robert Sacre each scored 15 points, helping No. 24 Gonzaga beat Pepperdine 72-60 Saturday night.

The Zags’ 15-point lead was cut to two points midway through the second half before they held on to win their 22nd straight in the series.

“They made a bunch of shots and took advantage of a couple defensive miscues by us,” Gonzaga coach Mark Few said. “I thought they were the more aggressive team for that 10-minute stretch. And then we were able to kind of get our feet back on the ground and flip the switch. I thought we were the most aggressive team down the stretch.”

Guy Landry Edi scored 13 points for Gonzaga (18-4 overall, 8-2 West Coast Conference), which broke out of a three-point shooting slump to go 7 of 16 from beyond the arc. The Zags were 4 of 30 on three-point attempts in their previous two games.
