A number of Gonzaga winning streaks came to an end Thursday night. The Portland Pilots knocked off the 22nd-ranked Bulldogs 82-73, ending Gonzaga’s 17-game winning streak at the Chiles Center and prompting Pilots fans to storm the court in celebration. The Bulldogs had won 20 straight in the series. Gonzaga (14-3, 4-1 WCC) also saw its 22-game conference winning streak snapped by the Pilots (10-7, 2-3), who took control early and were the aggressor for most of the contest. Five Pilots reached double figures, led by Bryce Pressley’s 16 points and nine assists. Freshman guard Alec Wintering added 14 points and four assists. Kevin Bailey scored 10 of his 13 points in the first half/Jim Meehan, SR. More here.
