No. 11 Gonzaga beats Arkansas 91-81 in Maui

LAHAINA, Hawaii (AP) — Kevin Pangos scored 34 points and No. 11 Gonzaga easily beat Arkansas 91-81 on Wednesday in the Maui Invitational.

Pangos made seven of eight 3-point attempts, including four during a 3-minute stretch in the second half that led the Bulldogs to an 18-point lead.

He did more than just shoot 3s, though. Pangos had four assists, three rebounds and several layups in traffic while the game was still close.

Gonzaga (6-1) never trailed and responded each time the Razorbacks tried to string together baskets.

Sam Dower Jr. had 19 points and Gary Bell Jr. 13 for the Zags.

Gonzaga bounced back for two wins and fifth place in the early-season tournament after losing in the first round to Dayton.
