    SPOKANE, Washington (Ticker) -- Ronny Turiaf and No. 16 Gonzaga look to extend the nation's second-longest home winning streak Monday when they venture outside of West Coast Conference play to face Northern Colorado.

    Gonzaga has won 24 straight games at home, including all 12 at the McCarthey Athletic Center, which opened prior to this season. The Bulldogs' streak is second only to Oklahoma State, which has posted 28 consecutive home victories.

    It will be the final home game for Turiaf, the school's fifth all-time leading scorer, and fellow senior Brian Michaelson.

    With 16 points Monday, Turiaf will move into fourth place on the school's all-time scoring list, passing last season's WCC Player of the Year Blake Stepp.

    Adam Morrison scored 22 points and Turiaf added 14 as Gonzaga wrapped up its fifth WCC regular season title in a row with a 91-79 triumph at Portland last Thursday.

    Playing just its second season in Division I, Northern Colorado had a two-game winning streak snapped on Saturday, dropping a 71-52 decision to Utah Valley State.

    Gonzaga will be the fifth NCAA Tournament team from last year to face the Bears. Northern Colorado lost to Syracuse, Air Force, Texas Tech and Utah this season.
