Zags win sloppy game

LOS ANGELES – Loyola Marymount men’s basketball coach Max Good surveyed the stat sheet and liked what he saw for the most part.

“If you had told me (Robert) Sacre was going to go 1 for 6 and (Steven) Gray 5 for 16, I would have liked my chances,” Good said. “But it’s a sign of a good team that they have other guys. (Sam) Dower goes 4 of 4 and (David) Stockton was the key player in this game.”

Gonzaga led by 13 points in the first seven minutes and was on top by 14 early in the second half, but the mistake-prone Bulldogs needed eight free throws late to preserve a 67-57 victory Thursday in front of 2,964 at Gersten Pavilion.

“Who cares?” Gonzaga coach Mark Few said of the sloppy nature of the win. “Anyway you can get a road win, it’s a great thing for us. We went in with the mindset this was going to be a tough, hard-fought scrap and it was. We won it with our rebounding and defense, and we stepped up and made free throws at the end.” More.
