Mom leads GU women

There a few people who define student-athlete better than Gonzaga senior Jami (Bjorklund) Schaefer, the lead subject for today’s notebook from the NCAA women’s tournament in Seattle. It’s impossible not to get to know someone you’ve seen play since junior high and like anyone else who has gotten to know Jami, it’s been refreshing to see someone who has kept her life in perfect balance.

Again, here’s the link to the advance for tonight’s tournament opener against Xavier. The Seattle Times has an advance, capsules for tonight’s doubleheader that includes Montana and Pittsburgh, plus a feature on GU point guard Courtney Vandersloot.

There is also the Cincinnati Enquirer advance and notebook from the Xavier angle. A note about the notebook, Xavier hired the South Kitsap band to play tonight - and so did Pittsburgh so the band will change from Pitt t-shirts to Xavier t-shirts between games. Both those schools sent their pep bands with the men’s teams.
