SEATTLE (AP)—Elias Harris and Gonzaga started fast and never let Arizona catch up … barely.

Harris scored 12 of Gonzaga’s first 19 points during a suffocating opening run, and the Bulldogs needed all of their early advantage to hold on in the final minutes for a 71-60 win over the Wildcats on Saturday at Seattle’s KeyArena.

Making their annual trip across the mountains to play before its large fan base in the Seattle area, Gonzaga (7-2) scored the first 14 points, held Arizona scoreless for more than five minutes, then held off Arizona’s second-half rally.

Harris made six of his first seven shots and his 3-pointer in the closing seconds gave him 17 for the first half, nearly outscoring the Wildcats by himself as Gonzaga led 39-21. He finished with 25 points.

Kyle Fogg led Arizona (7-3) with 14 points, but the Wildcats lost for the fourth time in seven games.
