SPOKANE, Wash. - Drew Timme scored 26 points and No. 15 Gonzaga beat Northern Illinois 88-67, extending the nation's longest home win streak to 71 games.

Ben Gregg had 18 points for the Zags (8-3), and fellow reserve Malachi Smith finished with 14. Timme went 9 for 15 from the field and 8 for 9 at the line.

Gonzaga's 71-game streak matches the longest by any team since 1985. Arizona won 71 straight between 1987-92 before its streak was halted by UCLA.

Gonzaga's next home game is Dec. 20 against Montana.

Keshawn Williams scored 25 points for Northern Illinois (3-7), and Anthony Crump had 20.

In the first ever matchup between the schools, Gonzaga used a 13-2 run midway through the second half to pull away.
