SPOKANE — Courtney Vandersloot collected 25 points and 14 assists to lead Gonzaga to an 87-67 victory over Portland on Friday night.

Vandersloot, a graduate of Kentwood High School in Covington, has 11 double-doubles this season for the Zags (20-4 overall, 8-0 West Coast Conference).

“It’s what we’ve come to expect for four years from Courtney,” Gonzaga coach Kelly Graves said.

Katelan Redmon, who is from Spokane, had 22 points on 9-for-15 shooting for Gonzaga and Kayla Standish of Ellensburg added 19 points and 10 rebounds. Standish has seven double-doubles this season.

Gonzaga made a mere six turnovers. The Zags had 22 points off Portland’s 16 turnovers; the Pilots turned Gonzaga’s turnovers into five points.

Lauren Angel led the Pilots (12-11, 3-5) with 25 points. Tara Cronin, a graduate of Gonzaga Prep in Spokane, had nine points and a team-high five assists for Portland.

• Junior guard Larry Drew II, son of Atlanta Hawks coach Larry Drew, has left the North Carolina program because “it’s in my best interest to continue my education and basketball career elsewhere.” The elder Drew phoned North Carolina coach Roy Williams to relay his son’s decision.
