SPOKANE, Wash. - Drew Timme scored 17 of his 21 points in the first half, Jalen Suggs added 17 points and top-ranked Gonzaga won its 26th straight game with a 106-69 romp over San Diego.

Corey Kispert added 16 points to help Gonzaga (22-0, 13-0 West Coast) get its 14th straight victory against San Diego and 49th consecutive win at home.

The Bulldogs are a win away from matching a program best 50-game home winning streak. Gonzaga will have a chance to break the mark next week with home games against Santa Clara and Loyola Marymount that were rescheduled to make up for earlier postponements.

Josh Parish led San Diego (3-8, 2-5) with 13 points. It was just the second game for the Toreros since losing to Gonzaga 90-62 on Jan. 28 due to a lengthy pause because of COVID-19 concerns. The Toreros have had 10 games postponed or canceled this season.

Timme and the Bulldogs blew it open midway through the first half and were never challenged. The Zags led 51-22 at halftime and by as many as 44 in the second half. The majority Gonzaga's starters - four finished in double figures scoring - checked out with more than 10 minutes remaining and watched as reserves carried the Zags over the century mark for the fifth time this season.

Timme made 7 of 8 shots in the first half as Gonzaga capitalized on 12 turnovers and quickly turned a six-point lead into a 33-13 advantage on Joel Ayayi's jumper. Gonzaga's big halftime lead came without any contributions from the perimeter. The Zags missed of their seven 3-point attempts in the first half.

Andrew Nembhard hit Gonzaga's first 3-pointer early in the second half and the Bulldogs finished 5 of 19 from deep.
