Zag women turn focus to WSU

The end score of 87-43 Monday night wasn’t able to erase the depth of the struggles that the No. 25 Gonzaga women’s basketball team endured in the first half against UC Riverside.

The (9-2) Zags went one-for-eight from free-point land and numerous layups that turned into bricks. As a result, Gonzaga trailed several times before the defense of Haiden Palmer allowed the Bulldogs to make a run late in the first half.

In one series alone before the half, the Zags missed four shots as the seconds ticked off right before halftime.

“It’s super frustrating,” said forward Sunny Greinacher, whose eyes widened as she spoke. “We practice those shots. They are supposed to go in during the game. You definitely feel bad for the coaches.”

 

Zag women’s break is about to end

After playing four games, Kelly Graves and the Gonzaga women's basketball team get a 10-day stretch between games. But the rest ends on Saturday when Gonzaga plays Colgate at 2 p.m. in the McCarthey Athletic Center.

Graves entertains the crowd again as Zags prepare to dance with second-seeded Kentucky on Sunday

KINGSTON, R.I. - Forget dunking a basketball.

Gonzaga women's basketball coach Kelly Graves' excitement prior to the final practice before his 11th-seeded Bulldogs face No. 2-seeded Kentucky tomorrow was all about Dunkin Donuts. Graves made his first trip to the famed joint last night on a walk.

The press conference remark, which will likely make its way into all the media coverage today, showcased how loose the Zags are during their cross-country trip for their Sweet 16 dance with the Wildcats. One thing about Graves and the Zags - they know how to let the good times roll, as highlighted in this morning's feature on sophomore guard Haiden Palmer.

More coverage later from myself and a picture story from S-R photographer Colin Mulvany.
