SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) -- Haiden Palmer had 18 points on Sunday as No. 25 Gonzaga suffocated Tennessee-Martin 91-54 in the second round of the Preseason WNIT at the McCarthey Athletic Center.

Palmer also had five boards, three assists and three steals in her second-straight 18-point game. Keani Albanez scored 14 points and set career-highs with both 4-of-7 3-point shooting and eight rebounds.

Gonzaga (2-0) led twice by 43 points, the last coming on a layup with 4:34 left by Shelby Cheslek to make the score 87-44. The Zags held UT-Martin to just 26.7 percent from the field.

Tiara Caldwell led the Skyhawks (1-1) with 13 points. Heather Butler added 12 but finished only 1 of 14 from long distance.

GU will now visit No. 11 University of Oklahoma on Thursday for the Semifinals of the Preseason WNIT.
