SPOKANE (AP) - Gonzaga coasted to victories in its first two games. Now it's time to focus on playing No. 25 San Diego State at home on Tuesday, the 12th-ranked Bulldogs' third game in five days.

Steven Gray scored 17 points to lead Sunday's 86-56 victory over IUPUI in the regional round of the CBE Classic.

With the Aztecs, who return all five starters, on deck, the Bulldogs (2-0) made sure they didn't look past IUPUI (0-1), which won 25 games last season.

The Jaguars missed their first 13 shots from the field and didn't make their first field goal until the 10:22 mark of the first half.

"We knew this was going to be a daunting task," IUPUI coach Ron Hunter said. "I don't know who's going to come in here and win. I don't care who they are."
