    SPOKANE, Wash. -- Austin Daye scored 20 points to lead five players in double figures as Gonzaga routed Santa Clara 95-53 on Thursday night.

    Matt Bouldin added 16 points, Steven Gray 15, Josh Heytvelt 11 and Jeremy Pargo 11 for Gonzaga (11-4, 2-0 West Coast Conference), which put on a display of dunks and 3-pointers against its overmatched foes.

    John Bryant scored 12 points and grabbed 11 rebounds for Santa Clara (7-12, 0-3), which lost its fifth consecutive game. It was his 12th double-double of the season. James Rahon added 14 points for the Broncos.

    The Broncos, who lost their previous four games by a total of 15 points, suffered easily their worst loss of the season.

    Gonzaga shot 55 percent in the game, dominated the rebounding 46-29, and forced the Broncos into 36 percent shooting and 17 turnovers. It was the highest scoring total of the season for the Zags.
