Williams, Collins help No. 11 Gonzaga beat Quinnipiac 82-62

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) - Jonathan Williams and Zach Collins led a balanced offense with 13 points apiece, helping No. 11 Gonzaga pull away to an 82-62 victory over Quinnipiac in the first round of the AdvoCare Invitational at Disney World on Thursday night.

The Bulldogs (5-0) also got 10 points each from Jordan Mathews and Josh Perkins to advance to the semifinals of the eight-team tournament against Florida or Seton Hall.

Gonzaga used a 12-2 spurt to open a 37-25 lead late in the first half. Silas Nelson's basket put the Bulldogs up 48-35 with just under 15 minutes to go, and the closest Quinnipiac (0-3) got after that was 10. Mathews made 3-pointers on successive trips down the floor, sparking a run that enabled the Bulldogs to build the lead to 23.
