Once again it's time to go surfing on the big wave that will carry you right up to the 6 p.m. tip-off off Gonzaga's Elite 8 game with Stanford at the Arena (and on ESPN).
It's overload time … I have filed an advance for Gonzaga's Elite Eight game with Tennessee on Monday night. Coming later is my notebook and keys to the game and John Blanchette is just wrapping up a column. Those stories will be along later tonight or in the morning, but I've found plenty of other stuff for your reading pleasure.
Yep, woke up this morning (mind you it wasn't too early), saw the newspaper and confirmed, Gonzaga is headed to the Elite Eight of the NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament.
There will be much more from the Spokane Regional tonight and tomorrow.
For what else I've found for this morning, read on.
Gonzaga made history Saturday night - women's division - by becoming the lowest seed (11) to make the Elite Eight of the NCAA Basketball Tournament. They did it by holding up down the stretch to beat seventh-seeded Louisville 76-69 before more than 10,700 fans at the Arena. As usual, Courtney Vandersloot (21) led the charge, setting a NCAA single season assist record and the WCC career steals record along the way.
They get a rematch with Stanford … the Cardinals won 84-78 in McCarthey the second game of the season … after the top-seeded Cardinal survived No. 5 North Carolina 72-65. We're limited by deadline and exhaustion from providing you more than the story and an amazing 41-picture slide show from Chris Anderson and Dan Pelle. Tomorrow you get John Blanchette's column and a notebook.
