SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) Top-ranked Gonzaga has been jumping on opponents early this season, leading by an average of more than 20 points at halftime in home games. That didn't happen against Pepperdine, as the Zags led by just four points at the break.

Corey Kispert had 23 points and eight rebounds as undefeated Gonzaga stormed back in the second half to beat Pepperdine 95-70 on Thursday for its 17th consecutive victory over the last two seasons.

"We're not just going to blow everybody out in the first half," Gonzaga coach Mark Few said. "It's not going to happen."
