Pacific Tigers vs Gonzaga Bulldogs College Basketball Betting Odds and Free NCAA Picks

After a week off for Christmas, Gonzaga gets down to the business of winning another West Coast Conference crown.

The 20th-ranked Bulldogs, who have won or shared the title 18 times in the past 20 years, meet Pacific on Thursday in Spokane, Wash., in the conference opener for both teams.

Both the Zags and Tigers enter the game off a loss.

Turnovers, which have been a problem for Gonzaga (10-3) this season, contributed to the subpar offensive performance in a 72-70 defeat at San Diego State a week ago.

Point guard Josh Perkins committed six of the Zags' 16 turnovers against the Aztecs.

The Zags did trail 11-0 3 1/2 minutes in and 22-10 later in the first half before closing with a 13-2 run before the break.

The Bulldogs' quest for another WCC crown begins against a Pacific team that is coming off a 104-65 blowout loss to No. 3 Arizona State.

Tigers head coach Damon Stoudamire wants to see more passing from his team.

The Tigers (5-8) have four transfers on their roster, including Roberto Gallinat, who leads the team with 13.7 points per game, and former Oregon guard Kendall Small, who is averaging 9.5 points and 3.2 assists.

Pacific will need to sort out those lapses quickly.

The Tigers face a Gonzaga team that hasn't lost a conference opener in 21 years, as well as Saint Mary's and BYU -- both of whom are 11-2 -- in their first four WCC games.

The Zags host Santa Clara on Saturday.
