    SPOKANE, Washington (Ticker) -- Fifth-ranked Gonzaga will close out its stay at The Kennel on Saturday as it seeks to complete its first unbeaten West Coast Conference schedule in the regular-season finale against Santa Clara.

    Gonzaga (24-2, 13-0 WCC) enters on a school-record 17-game winning streak as it plays its final game at its cozy 4,000-seat gymnasium. The Bulldogs will move into a bigger facility next season.

    Saturday will mark the final home game for Gonzaga four-year seniors Blake Stepp, Kyle Bankhead and Cory Violette. Transfers Tony Skinner and Richard Fox will also take the floor in Spokane for the final time.

    Stepp needs one 3-pointer to break Richie Frahm's school record of 280 in his career. He nailed eight - all in the second half - and scored 24 points in Thursday's 97-78 rout of San Diego.

    Gonzaga is 160-15 at The Kennel since 1991.

    The last team to go unbeaten in the WCC was the 1991-92 Pepperdine squad, which was 12-0.

    Santa Clara (14-14, 6-7) ended a four-game slide with a 55-54 victory at Portland on Thursday. Doron Perkins scored 17 points to lead the Broncos.

    Gonzaga owns a six-game winning streak over Santa Clara, posting a 79-63 road win on January 31 behind Stepp's 21 points. Violette added 14 points and nine rebounds.
