Good evening from Los Angeles. Haven't seen a cloud in three days but I did witness two interesting basketball games. GU worked over Pepperdine on Thursday, but Saturday wasn't as easy against a short-handed Loyola Marymount squad. The Zags had to work from start to finish to secure an 82-72 win at Gersten Pavilion.
Sam Dower finished with a career-high 28 points — surpassing 1,000 career points at GU — and 14 rebounds. Known for his soft shooting touch, Dower couldn't buy a basket at times as his attempts from close range trickled off the iron, but he got plenty of opportunities and made several crucial baskets in the closing minutes.
My unedited game story is below. Check back for my day-after post in the morning.

Stephanie Golden had a career-high 15 points and the No. 22 Gonzaga women's basketball team earned a 79-61 win over Loyola Marymount at the McCarthey Athletic Center on Thursday night. As you'll see in my story, I overheard a fan throw out a horrendously obvious pun after the game. I'd like to thank that fan. After he said it, I couldn't get it out of my head. Hence, the first couple paragraphs.
