The GU trio starred in the Bulldogs' comfortable win over winless Mississippi Valley State.

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) Josh Perkins and Silas Melson had 15 points apiece as No. 8 Gonzaga remained undefeated and kept Mississippi Valley State winless with a 97-63 victory Thursday night.

All of Perkins' points came on five first-half 3s.

Nigel Williams-Goss chipped in 13 points, five assists and three steals for the Bulldogs (7-0).

The Delta Devils (0-9) had an energetic start, but the Bulldogs' nine 3s built a 21-point halftime lead.

Two 3-pointers by Williams-Goss and six points from Jordan Mathews helped the Bulldogs go up five just 4 minutes into the first half.

Freshman center Zach Collins had two early dunks, both of which he flushed while being fouled.

Rashaan Surles led the Delta Devils with 13 points.
