    SPOKANE, Wash. -- Josh Heytvelt and Matt Bouldin each scored 14 points as Gonzaga beat Portland 67-50 on Saturday in the West Coast Conference opener for both teams.

    Steven Gray added 13 points for Gonzaga (10-4, 1-0 WCC), which was coming off an overtime win at No. 15 Tennessee that snapped a three-game losing streak. Austin Daye had 10 rebounds as the Zags beat Portland for the 11th consecutive time.

    Jared Stohl scored 10 points and Nik Raivio and T.J. Campbell had nine each for Portland (9-7, 0-1). Raivio is the brother of former Gonzaga star Derek Raivio.

    Gonzaga won its 13th consecutive WCC home opener in a league it has dominated for more than a decade. The Zags also served notice that a recent run in which they lost four of five games to fall out of the Top 25 does not mean they are more vulnerable to WCC foes.

    The 50 points by Portland were its second lowest of the season, after they scored 43 in a win over Air Force.
