OUTLOOK: The Zags can reach a number of milestones this week. A win over LMU would clinch a ninth straight conference title and the No. 1 seed in the WCC tournament. That would tie Kentucky’s nine SEC titles from 1944-52 for fourth longest in Division I history. A victory would also give Gonzaga 12 consecutive 20-win seasons. Gonzaga, unbeaten in the WCC in 2004 and 2006, routed the Lions 93-60 last month in Los Angeles as six players scored between nine and 18 points. LMU moved out of the cellar by winning its first WCC game last week, 65-57 over San Diego.
