Gonzaga shot it well, rebounded it well, but turned the ball over frequently, which pretty much kept the Bulldogs from grabbing a bigger lead against San Francisco.
GU leads 41-37 at half after making 17 of 26 shots (65.4 percent) and holding a 19-10 rebounding edge. But the Bulldogs started the game with turnovers on their first four possessions and finished the half with 12 TOs. USF converted those miscues into 18 points.
Freshman guard Demetri Goodson came off the bench to score 12 points. He made 5 of 6 shots, including the first two 3-pointers of his career. His previous season high was eight points against Utah. Josh Heytvelt added eight points and Matt Bouldin 7, but he connected on just 2 of 7 shots.
Dior Lowhorn started 1 of 5, but made 5 of his next 6 shots. He has 15 points at half.
