    导出博客文章SPOKANE, Wash. -- Gonzaga held a significant size advantage over Mississippi
    Valley State but the big difference was on the perimeter.The eighth-ranked
    Bulldogs hit 12 3-pointers, nine in the first half, and they remained unbeaten
    with a 97-63 victory over the winless Delta Devils on Thursday night.We kept
    (Przemek Karnowski) from getting the ball, Mississippi Valley State coach Andre
    Payne said of Gonzagas best big man. We forced them into the game we wanted.Josh
    Perkins and Silas Melson had 15 points apiece for Gonzaga.All of Perkins points
    came on five first-half 3s. Melson had eight points in the second half, finished
    5 of 8 from the field and grabbed four rebounds.I thought once the first 5
    minutes went by we settled in, Gonzaga coach Mark Few said.Nigel Williams-Goss
    chipped in 13 points, five assists and three steals for the Bulldogs.The Delta
    Devils had an energetic start, but the Bulldogs nine first-half 3s built a
    21-point halftime lead.If people are making 3s like that, our pressure becomes
    an early void, because thats what we wanted them to do, Payne said. They just
    happened to be making a lot of 3s.MVSU went up by one in the early minutes, then
    the barrage of 3s began. Two 3-pointers by Williams-Goss and six points from
    Jordan Mathews helped the Bulldogs go up five points just 4 minutes into the
    game.Reserve freshman center Zach Collins had two early dunks, both of which he
    flushed while being fouled. Collins finished with 13 points and nine boards for
    the Bulldogs.The Zags went an 11-2 run that included three 3s from Perkins. The
    redshirt sophomore hit his fourth and fifth 3 shortly thereafter, which pushed
    the lead to 20.Rashaan Surles had 13 points for the Delta Devils.BIG
    PICTUREMississippi Valley State: Much of the Delta Devils early woes can
    certainly be attributed to the four Top 25 teams they have faced -- all on the
    road.Gonzaga: In order to sweep the remainder of its nonconference schedule, it
    largely hinges on the play of Williams-Goss. The transfer guard picked up
    Advocate Invitational MVP honors and WCC Player of the Week honors and is
    averaging a steady 12.8 points, 5.8 rebounds and 4.8 assists per game while
    shooting 45 percent from 3 and 94.7 percent from the line.POLL
    IMPLICATIONSGonzaga: The Zags jumped three spots to No. 8 after winning the
    Advocare Invitational and beating a winless team will likely have no effect.
    Where GU could get hurt is in the RPI, where the Zags are No. 1 and MVSU is
    slotted at No. 320. Now the seasons biggest early test lies ahead in Arizona,
    which the Bulldogs hold a 1-7 record against. A win Saturday would give Gonzaga
    its second over a ranked team.NUMBERS GAMEThe Zags most recent hike in the polls
    -- from No. 11 to No. 8 -- marks the programs fifth 6-0 start since the 1958-59
    season. Of the four 7-0 starts in program history, Gonzaga has followed two of
    those with losses to Arizona -- the most recent example of that coming in
    2014-15, a 66-63 Arizona win in overtime.FRESHMAN STANDOUTFreshman Rui Hachimura
    scored a season-high 10 points in 13 minutes. The Japan native has seen limited
    action this season, but has impressed Few with his early development.Hes got
    such a good feel for the game and you can throw him into a situation like that,
    Few said. Hes coming along. Hes very much a work in progress, but Im happy where
    hes at.UP NEXTMississippi Valley State gets a two-week break before returning to
    play at Seattle University on Dec. 15 and Grand Canyon on Dec. 17. The Delta
    Devils play their fifth ranked opponent, No. 19 Iowa State on Dec. 20.Gonzaga
    faces No. 16 Arizona at Staples Center on Saturday, then returns home to play
    in-state Pac-12 opponent Washington on Dec. 7.
    . The formidable trio of Canadian receivers -- individually known as Chris
    Getzlaf, Rob Bagg and Andy Fantuz -- will share the field at Mosaic Stadium one
    more time on Sunday.

    . This should be celebrated because it will not always be
    this way. With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days,
    it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take
    away many of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of
    their season.
    . Scott Kazmir allowed four hits in seven shutout innings, Michael Brantley hit
    a two-run homer in a three-run first inning and the Indians maintained their
    hold on an AL wild-card spot with a 4-1 win over the Houston Astros on Saturday
    . In taking its goal tally to 99 in all competitions already this season, City
    delivered another demonstration of its lethal firepower at Etihad Stadium to set
    up a fourth-round match at home to another second-tier team -- Watford.

    . Isner, ranked No. 14, won his eighth career singles title
    and took the title in New Zealand for the second time after his victory in 2010.
    The match was similar to Isners quarterfinal victory over fifth-seeded Philipp
    Kohlschreiber which went to three sets, all tiebreaks and contained no breaks of
    serve. LAUSANNE, Switzerland -- The International Olympic Committee on Thursday
    stripped 10 athletes of medals from the 2008 Olympics after banned substances
    were found during retests of samples from the Games.The IOC said the 10, nine of
    whom hail from former Soviet nations, had all tested positive for various
    steroids.No gold medalists were among the 10, though there were three silver
    medalists from weightlifting and wrestling. Track and field was also hit, with
    Greek triple jumper Chrysopigi Devetzi and Ukrainian pole vaulter Denys
    Yurchenko losing their bronze medals. Yurchenkos ban could elevate Derek Miles
    of the United States to the bronze-medal position.Six athletes who did not win
    medals in 2008 were also disqualified.There could be another U.S. medal for high
    jumper Chaunte Lowe, who originally finished sixth but is now in line to inherit
    bronze.Among those disqualified Thursday were the athletes who had finished in
    the two places immediately above Lowe, Russias Elena Slesarenko and Ukraines
    Vita Palamar. The bronze-medal position was vacated laast month when the IOC
    said Russian Anna Chicherova had tested positive for the steroid
    turinabol.ddddddddddddThe IOC ruling also casts a shadow over the career of
    Slesarenko, who was the gold medalist in 2004, though she will not be stripped
    of that title under Thursdays ruling.The three silver medalists affected are
    Azerbaijani wrestler Vitaly Rahimov, Russian wrestler Khasan Baroev and
    Kazakhstan weightlifter Irina Nekrasova. Weightlifting has been by far the
    worst-hit sport in retests and saw nine more athletes sanctioned Thursday,
    taking the sports total for the 2008 Olympics alone to 22.Other athletes who
    stand to benefit include Canadian weightlifter Christine Girard, who could move
    up to the bronze position because of Nekrasovas disqualification, and Mariam
    Usman, who would become only the second Nigerian to win a weightlifting medal
    with bronze after Kazakhstans Maria Grabovetskaya was disqualified from third.
