Zag women to meet No. 2 UNC; Eastern men lose


Talk about deja vu.

The Zag women knocked off 21st-ranked UCLA in the first round of the Rainbow Wahine Classic 62-57 Friday.

That earns them - stop me if you’ve heard this before - a date Saturday with No. 2-ranked North Carolina.

Can they do what the men’s team did? And if they do, would it be the first time that’s ever happened - one school knocking off another in both men’s and women’s play in the same week, while both losing teams were ranked second in the nation?

Of course there is no way of knowing, but it sounds kind of rare. Let’s see if it happens.


EWU hung tough until the last couple minutes, but in the end the Hsuky men had too much. To read about the game, click on Dave Trimmer’s blog.
