Gonzaga put five players in double figures, including reserve forward Kelly Bowen’s 15 points and a double-double by conference player of the year Courtney Vandersloot, to outlast sixth-seeded San Diego 66-55 and win the WCC Tournament championship Monday.
The Bulldogs added the tournament title to their regular-season crown. They’ll be making their second trip to the NCAA Tournament in three years.
Heather Bowman scored a team-high 16 points, Janelle Bekkering 14, Vivian Frieson 11 and Vandersloot 10. Vandersloot also had 10 assists.
