SAN FRANCISCO -- Katelan Redmon scored 18 points, Kayla Standish recorded her third consecutive double-double and Gonzaga (No. 18 ESPN/USA Today, No. 19 AP) bounced back from its worst conference loss in a decade to beat San Francisco 79-59 on Saturday.
Jazmine Redmon added 10 points for the Bulldogs (22-4, 11-2), who moved into sole possession of first place in the West Coast Conference, one-half game ahead of BYU.
Two days after losing to the Cougars by 30 points, Gonzaga didn't have any problem handling the smaller Dons on the road and led by as much as 29 before coach Kelly Graves emptied his bench. The Bulldogs shot nearly 47 percent in the second half and nearly doubled the Dons in rebounds with a 53-27 advantage.
Rheina Ale scored 19 points and became San Francisco's career leader for minutes played, but the Dons (4-22, 2-11) still lost their fifth straight.
