LAS VEGAS -- In the semifinal round of the West Coast Conference tournament, No. 17 Gonzaga found itself in a tussle against a team that won one regular-season conference game.After a tense first 10 minutes Sunday, Gonzaga pulled away for an 87-47 victory behind a game-high 18 points from Heather Bowman. It was the Bulldogs' 16th straight win, and puts them in Monday's title game for the fifth time in six years."It took us a little while to get our bearings straight tonight," said Gonzaga coach Kelly Graves, whose team only led 13-12 with 10:30 left. "But once we got it rolling, we cranked up the defense a little bit. When we can get offense off our defense, we can be pretty good, and that's when we're at our best. It was a good first game."
