Mississippi Valley State was playing about as hard as it possibly could. The Delta Devils were pressing, trapping, running the floor and battling inside against taller Gonzaga.

They were hanging tough, trailing by just five near the midpoint of the first half.

And then they weren’t.

Sophomore guard Josh Perkins hit four 3-pointers as Gonzaga quickly pulled away and cruised to a 97-63 victory in front of a full house of 6,000 Thursday at the McCarthey Athletic Center.

No. 8 Gonzaga (7-0) tuned up for Saturday’s showdown against Arizona in Los Angeles by handing out 23 assists and shooting 56 percent from the field.

“Oh man, it (shooting stroke) feels good. Hope it keeps going,” said Perkins, who is 17 of 32 from 3 (53 percent) this season. “Lot of credit to my teammates for finding me.”

Be sure to take the time to listen to the coach and player interview audios to the left of the story! That's something new Jim's been ding that I really enjoy.

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) Gonzaga held a significant size advantage over Mississippi Valley State but the big difference was on the perimeter.

The eighth-ranked Bulldogs hit 12 3-pointers, nine in the first half, and they remained unbeaten with a 97-63 victory over the winless Delta Devils on Thursday night.

''We kept (Przemek Karnowski) from getting the ball,'' Mississippi Valley State coach Andre Payne said of Gonzaga's best big man. ''We forced them into the game we wanted.''

''If people are making 3s like that, our pressure becomes an early void, because that's what we wanted them to do,'' Payne said. ''They just happened to be making a lot of 3s.''

Thanks a ton for these posts ZagNative! I couldn't watch the game so all these highlights in one place are very much appreciated. Saturday's game vs Arizona in L.A. should be an electric atmosphere!!!
