Portland got a couple of licks in ... such as Natalie Day's uncalled whack to Janelle Bekkering's nose in the Dan Pelle photo above (check out all the photos) - but not near enough to slow down the Gonzaga women's basketball team.

Courtney Vandersloot got her 11th double-double with 25 points and 14 assists, Katelan Redmon had 22 points and Kayla Standish had her fourth double-double of 19 points and 10 rebounds as Gonzaga won its 24th-straight West Coast Conference game by rolling Portland 87-67 Friday night.

A crowd of 4,917, fourth largest ever for the women at McCarthey (behind the Tennessee and Stanford sellouts and senior night against Portland the year the building open) saw the Zags run their winning streak to 10, 24 in WCC games.
