I knew keeping up with the women's basketball blog was going to be difficult with all figure skating all the time, but I can't blame that on me being remiss. No, Friday night a virus ravaged my computer and I was lucky I was able to handle figure skating duties on Saturday. Providing any blog info was out of the question.
I picked up a new computer today and I am without contacts, book marks, any of the stuff that makes doing my job smoother. However, I know the readers won't be denied, so here we go.
Starting off, congratulations to Heather Bowman, the WCC's all-time leading scorer, which earned her her 10th Player of the Week honor, and to Eastern Washington, sitting first in the Big Sky Conference.
Among the news and notes:
Bowman, 1,956 is less 55 points from the school record of 2,011, set by Tammy Tibbles in the pre-Division I days. That's a record she could get on the road this weekend but I expect will come a week from Thursday at home. For those keeping track, junior point guard Courtney Vandersloot should get the school career assist record this weekend, she needs nine to pass Shannon Mathews, who had 600. The WCC record is 659.
Gonzaga is No. 3 in the Mid-Major poll by Graham Hays of ESPN.
Time to go back to concentrating on tomorrow's figure skating story.
