Outlook: Gonzaga goes for a season sweep against Pacific after pulling away for a 71-61 victory in Stockton less than a month ago. GU trailed by five points roughly 5 minutes into the second half before a decisive 25-8 run. Kyle Wiltjer hit numerous key shots and finished with 23 points. Domantas Sabonis added 12 points and 20 rebounds and Eric McClellan chipped in 19 points. The Tigers have won only one of their last six games but it was a big one, knocking off BYU 77-72 in Provo. Pacific, which led Saint Mary’s by seven with 4 minutes left before falling, has eight losses by five points or less. Senior guard Alec Kobre, a 43-percent 3-point shooter who scored 20 points against Gonzaga, has scored in double figures in eight straight games. - Jim Meehan
