It's time for some basketball - and a welcome home to Kate Loper (above) - so hunker down for some serious reading about the area Division I women's teams.
Today was our special section. With last year's success, the leadoff was Gonzaga but we touched on all four teams in one story. Also on-line are predictions. And a reminder we tweet from @SRtrim, starting with the season opener for Gonzaga.
Eastern Washington plays Corban (the team GU spanked in its exhibition last Saturday) on Friday and then gets a visit from Hofstra on Sunday, which gives Post Falls grad Kate Loper, a sophomore for the Pride, two games at "home."
Among the other stories found, The Seattle Times touched bases with Gonzaga sophomore Taelor Karr, the transfer from Kansas State, packaged with 5 things to watch. As long as we're there, here are the Washington Husky recruits.
Once again, a reminder, ESPN.com has the comprehensive women's basketball preview and today promised a story on Gonzaga. It's not up yet, but I suspect it will be soon, but not before I'm stuck with a paint brush in my hand. So keep checking the link and don't be afraid to leave a message and/or link when you see it up.
