SPOKANE, Wash., Jan. 2 (UPI) -- Przemek Karnowski and Kevin Pangos had 15 points each Thursday to send No. 21 Gonzaga rolling over St. Mary's 73-51 in a West Coast Conference showdown.

Gonzaga remained unbeaten in three conference games and is 13-2 overall. Karnowski dominated inside with nine rebounds and blocked seven shots for a career high.

The Bulldogs built on a 14-point halftime lead and shot 49 percent from the field.

St. Mary's (10-4, 1-1 WCC) opened the season with nine straight wins, but has now lost four of five. The Gaels are playing without Coach Randy Bennett, who is serving a five-game suspension for a violation of recruiting rules.

Beau Levesque scored 12 points for St. Mary's, which attempted 12 shots from 3-point range and made just one of them.
