FROM SALT LAKE CITY — They call it “practice,” technically, but as you can see from the video posted below, these open-to-the-public, day-before-the-tourney practice sessions aren't all that strenuous. Here's a look.
FROM SALT LAKE CITY — As is customary the day before the NCAA tournament, the head coach and players from each participating team took the stage to answer questions at a press conference. Here's the transcription of Gonzaga's media session, as provided by ASAP Sports.
June Daugherty summed it up quite simply.
“We have to be able to rebound,” the Washington State women’s basketball coach said in a press conference Tuesday afternoon.
Daughtery was speaking literally, of course, about rebounding in order to get more looks at second and third shots in an effort to jumpstart the Cougars’offense – which has been out of sync and is still adjusting after losing guard Ireti Amojo, a key component to WSU’s offense.
It’s not just the Cougars that need to rebound, however. After last week, all area Division I women’s basketball teams are looking to bounce back from losses – some more surprising than others. Read on for the rest of my unedited area college women's basketball notebook, which will run in tomorrow's paper.
Gonzaga University, showing no lingering effects of the lopsided loss it suffered against Duke nine days earlier, dismantled Eastern Washington 94-52 Monday night in front of a subdued sellout crowd at the McCarthy Athletic Center.
The Bulldogs (9-3), who took control early and led by upwards of 40 points throughout most of the second half, were paced offensively by freshman forward Elias Harris, who scored a game-high 22 points and chased down seven rebounds.
Steven Gray and Matt Bouldin each added 11 points for the Zags, who also got 10 points, each, from Mangisto Arop and Kelly Olynyk.
Eastern (4-10), which was plagued by some early ball-handling issues, also shot it horribly once again, making only 17 of its 59 field goal tries and just four of 24 attempts from 3-point range.
The loss was the fifth straight for Eastern, which has been outscored by an average of 29 points in its last four games. The Eagles were paced offensively by freshman guard Glen Dean, who finished with 13 points, and senior forward Mark Dunn, who added 11.
