Courtney Vandersloot shy? No way, you say? Not with the way she has dominated the basketball court in her four years at Gonzaga. Well, she begs to differ, but that is only one thing you'll learn about the record-breaking Bulldogs senior, who is, according to her coach, the face of the team.
As for news of the day, Montana and Katie Baker (Lake City) are headed to the NCAA Tournament at the expense of Portland State and Lexi Bishop (Mead) and Kelli Valentine (Mead). The Vikings will be a postseason berth in the WNIT. Valentine (14 points, 10 boards) and Eastern Washington's Tatjana Sparavalo made the all-tournament team.
Heidi Heintz (Central Valley) is also going to be on the big stage as UC Davis won the Big West title as she scored 11 points and grabbed nine rebounds.
There's a good chance that Montana will be sent to Spokane for the NCAA Tournament at McCarthey Athletic Center ... a 15 seed facing UCLA? Gonzaga is still listed as a 10 but something tells me the committee may disagree and make them a seven ... but it really wouldn't change the pod.
