LOS ANGELES, CA. -- Matt Bouldin hit five 3-pointers and scored 18 points to lead No. 23 Gonzaga to a 93-60 rout of Loyola Marymount on Saturday night.

The Bulldogs (14-4, 5-0 West Coast Conference) hit 12 3-pointers in winning their sixth straight game. A big part of the rout was their balanced scoring, with four Gonzaga players in double figures.

Austin Daye had 14 points and grabbed a team-high 10 rebounds for Gonzaga. Steven Gray added 14 points and made four 3s, and senior forward Josh Heytvelt finished with 15 points, six rebounds and four blocks. Micah Downs added 10 points and six rebounds off the bench.

Freshman Kevin Young had 21 points and 12 rebounds for the Lions, who trailed 43-17 at halftime. Vernon Teel scored 12 points and Jarred DuBois had 11 points.

Point guard Jeremy Pargo finished with nine points, seven rebounds and four assists -- nearly giving the Bulldogs a fifth double-figure scorer.

Gonzaga coach Mark Few won his 250th game since taking over as head coach in the 1999-2000 season. Few has led the Bulldogs to nine straight conference regular season titles and is trying to lead the team to its 11th straight NCAA Tournament.

Few improved his record as Gonzaga head coach to 250-64.

Gonzaga dominated last-place LMU (1-20, 0-5), which was held to 26 percent shooting while the Bulldogs shot nearly 52 percent.

Gonzaga also used its height advantage to control the glass with a 52-33 rebounding advantage. The Bulldogs led by as many as 38 points and never looked back after an 11-0 run early in the first half.
