WSU vs. Gonzaga final score: Bulldogs wallop Cougs, 90-74

William Mancebo

Kevin Pangos does it again, scoring 27 points in a game that was never really close after the early moments.

No. 13 Gonzaga made short work of Washington State behind 27 points by Kevin Pangos as the Bulldogs routed the Cougars, 90-74.

If this was the first test for the newly revamped WSU defense, the Cougs failed it miserably, giving up 1.26 points per possession. The Zags did most of their damage from behind the arc, where they took advantage of a plethora of wide open looks to shoot 13-of-23, leading to an effective field goal percentage of 66.9.

The Cougs, meanwhile, suffered yet another poor shooting night, connecting on just nine of their 29 threes. They're under 30 percent from beyond the arc through three games.

The night wasn't all negative, though. Freshman Ike Iroegbu looked like the most dynamic player the Cougs have had in years, pushing the pace and repeatedly knifing into the lane for buckets. He finished with a team high 20 points to go along with six rebounds, four assists and a steal against just two turnovers.

WSU now awaits the arrival of an awful TCU team on Sunday. That game is at 3 p.m. on Pac-12 Networks.
