UPDATED: 12:15 a.m.

Stanford whipped Gonzaga in the Elite 8 of the NCAA Tournament and the photographers whipped us writers, getting the slide show up first.

On the budget is a game story, a notebook (Greg Lee's credit was left off) and John Blanchette's column, which is a must read good-bye to Courtney Vandersloot.

A story from Tom Fitzgerald of The San Francisco Chronicle and the story from Tim Booth of The Associated Press.

Michelle Voepel from ESPN.com has this take.

While Spokane is disappointed for the Gonzaga team, there's also disappointment for one Spokane player, Angie Bjorklund (U-Hi), whose career at Tennessee came to disheartening end with a loss to Notre Dame. Graham Hays of ESPN.com has this take. And the game story from Dan Fleser of the Knoxville News-Sentinel. Apparently the guards let the Lady Vols down.

That's it for tonight, the eyes are slamming shut.
