PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) Rui Hachimura said it felt like Gonzaga was a bit hurried in the first half against struggling Portland before settling down for a more typical Bulldog win.
"Before the second half, we talked about passing more and using our teammates. I think the second half we did pretty well with ball movement," the 6-foot-8 sophomore said.
Hachimura had 17 points and nine rebounds and No. 5 Gonzaga extended its winning streak to nine games with an 89-66 victory over Portland on Saturday night.
