Gonzaga rallies to remain hot

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Przemek Karnowski scored a season-high 19, Kevin Pangos added 18 and No. 20 Gonzaga came from 10 points down to beat West Virginia 80-76 on Tuesday night.

Gary Bell Jr. added 15 points and Sam Dower 11 for the Bulldogs (9-1), who won their fifth straight since a Nov. 25 loss to Dayton in the Maui Invitational.

Pangos had 11 points in the final six minutes as Gonzaga rallied from down 53-43, its only double-digit deficit this season.

The Bulldogs held West Virginia to one field goal over a late seven-minute stretch late.

Eron Harris led the Mountaineers with 23 points. Juwan Staten added 17 and Terry Henderson 15.

Playing on an opponent's court for the first time this season, Gonzaga matched its season low for points. The Bulldogs entered with the nation's best field-goal percentage at 54.9 but were held to 44.3 percent (27-of-61).

Karnowski grabbed 13 boards as Gonzaga held a 43-36 rebound advantage.

West Virginia led 64-56 after a 3-pointer by Terry Henderson with 8:23 left, but the Mountaineers fell flat and failed to seize on an opportunity to get their first win over a marquee opponent.

NO. 11 KENTUCKY 70, BOISE ST. 55: James Young scored 17 of his 21 in the first half and the host Wildcats (8-2) used solid defense to hand the Broncos their first loss. Outrebounded by 15 in losing to No. 14 Baylor on Friday, Kentucky dominated Boise State 43-27 on the glass.

RUTGERS SUIT: A former Rutgers player claims in a lawsuit that he was subjected to physical and emotional abuse at the hands of fired coach Mike Rice.
