The defending WNBL champions crushed the Waves 79-53 in a clinical performance at Bendigo Stadium.
Bendigo led 25-18 at quarter time and then applied the familiar defensive clamps.
Bendigo consistently turned back the Waves' offence and held the visitors to a combined 17 points in the second and third terms.
The Spirit ground out a 52-35 lead to three-quarter time, before the match turned into something of a three-point shooting contest.
Bendigo drained five of seven attempts beyond the arc in the fourth quarter to West Coast's four from six as the scoreboard rocketed along.
Kristi Harrower ended the match with 19 points - including four maximums - six rebounds and seven assists in a vintage display.
She was supported by Kelly Wilson (15 points), Kelsey Griffin and Sara Blicavs (11).
Antonia Edmondson had 16 for West Coast.
The Spirit's aerial dominance was telling as it won the rebounds 41-24.
