SPOKANE – Haiden Palmer scored 18 points, leading four starters in double figures, as 24th-ranked Gonzaga coasted to an 82-42 victory over Fairfield of Connecticut in a nonconference women’s basketball game Monday night.

The Zags (5-1) were ahead 27-21 when they went on a 15-0 run to close the first half to double up the Stags at 42-21.

Gonzaga scored the first eight points of the second half in the first meeting between the schools.

Sunny Greinacher scored 14 points, Lindsay Sherbert added 13 and Keani Albanez had 11 for the Zags before a crowd of 4,823.

Gonzaga shot 52.3 percent from the field, 56.3 percent on three-point attempts (9 of 16) and turned 22 turnovers by Fairfield (3-3) into 30 points.

Gonzaga made a mere six turnovers against its visitors from the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference and had a 34-29 rebounding advantage.

Fairfield, which shot 40.5 percent, was led by Katie Cizynski, who had 17 points on 7-for-10 shooting and a game-high seven rebounds.

Gonzaga, which has won its last three games by a combined 110 points, hosts Portland State on Friday night.
