No. 19 Gonzaga too much for South Dakota 96-58
GONZAGA 96, SOUTH DAKOTA 58

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) -- With an upcoming holiday tournament,
senior Elias Harris made sure No. 19 Gonzaga didn't overlook an
overmatched opponent.



Harris had 16 points and a career-high 18 rebounds as the
Bulldogs overwhelmed South Dakota 96-58 Sunday.



"I was just trying to get myself going, get the team going, so I
was just crashing to boards," said Harris, who had 10 rebounds.



"Just go out and have fun, come out with lots of energy, attack
the boards and grab as many boards as I can. That was my
mindset."



Przemek Karnowski, a 7-foot-1 freshman from Poland, had a
game-high 20 points off the bench for the Bulldogs (3-0), who
head to the Old Spice Classic in Florida to face Clemson
Thanksgiving.



Gary Bell Jr. also had 16 points with Sam Dower getting 12
points and nine rebounds and Kevin Pangos 10 points to go with
six assists.



Gonzaga shot 55 percent, outscoring the Coyotes 62-16 in the
paint and outrebounding them 58-24.



It was Harris who led the charge.



"Great effort from him," teammate Guy Landry Edi said. "He
understands he needs to do that all year long for us to be more
successful. Before the game we talked about it. I knew he was
going to come out and have a great, great effort."



Freshmen Casey Kasperbauer and Tyler Flack scored 17 and 10
points, respectively, for the Coyotes (1-3), who were playing
their fourth game in five nights. Senior Juevol Myles had 12
points.



"They're really good, with great size," South Dakota coach Dave
Boots said. "Physically we just couldn't push and shove with
them. Even when we tried to double down on them it was tough to
get to them, and they still stepped through us."



South Dakota, with just one senior starter and one returning
starter from last season's 10-18 team, shot 34 percent and
committing 20 turnovers.



Harris reached 10 rebounds by the time the Coyotes got to 10
points almost 8 minutes into the game.



After a sluggish start Gonzaga's starters rotated back into the
game just past the midway point of the first half and ripped off
an 18-4 run as the lead reached 20. The burst included a tip-in
by Harris, who had 12 points and 13 rebounds to spark the
Bulldogs to a 46-30 lead.



"It started with Elias," Gonzaga coach Mark Few said. "I thought
he had a great approach tonight and he was trying to get every
(rebound) that was out there. If we could have left him out
there longer he easily could have had a 20-plus rebound night.
It was good to see."



Gonzaga dominated the opening minutes of the second half and
quickly pushed the lead to 27.



"The difference with this game was that the shots came easy,"
Few said. "There was a little bit of turning some down here and
there and not taking the first shot available, which is hard.
All the guys I put out there can score pretty easily and by and
large we did a good job.



"We probably turned it over more than we needed to, but the guys
did a nice job of pushing the pace and getting the shots we
wanted."



The Zags had 16 turnovers and only made 4 of 15 free throws but
the bench outscored the Coyotes 38-9.



"We just need to go out every night and play as hard as we can,
it doesn't matter who we face," Harris said. "That's what we did
tonight."
