SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Sonja Greinacher tied a career high with 21 points and Lindsay Sherbert 19 as 25th-ranked Gonzaga defeated UC Riverside 87-43 on Monday night.

Greinacher reached double-figure scoring for a sixth-straight game, and Sherbert hit a career-high five 3-pointers, all after halftime, for the Bulldogs (9-2), who remain unbeaten in seven home games this season.

Gonzaga forced 25 turnovers — 19 on steals — and hit half its field goals, 36 of 72. Haiden Palmer had nine steals to go with nine points, and Jazmine Redmon had four steals.

Gonzaga led 36-30 after a close first half, but Palmer and Greinacher combined for the first 11 points of the second half, building a 47-34 lead.

Brittany Crain, with 11 points for the Highlanders (4-5), kept her double-figure scoring streak alive at 19 games, tying the school's D-I record for most games in double-digits. Riverside was held to 34-percent shooting.
