SPOKANE — Matt Bouldin scored 15 points and No. 18 Gonzaga closed its regular season Tuesday night with a 78-59 pounding of overmatched Cal State Bakersfield.

Bol Kong scored 13 points and Robert Sacre added 10 for the Bulldogs (25-5), who had already wrapped up their 10th consecutive West Coast Conference title and a bye into Sunday’s semifinals of the league tournament.

This was the final game for Cal State Bakersfield (7-22), which is in its transition to full Division I status next season. It fell to 0-5 against WCC teams this season.

Trent Blakley led Bakersfield with 19 points, while Donavan Bragg added 13.
