Gonzaga women rolling

Coming into the 1 p.m. Saturday showdown with No. 6 Stanford, the No. 23 Gonzaga women’s basketball team has all the marks of a good team that has yet to find it’s true identity.

Despite off nights Tuesday against Wisconsin for Haiden Palmer (6 points, 6 rebounds) and Lindsay Sherbert (9 points, 6 rebounds), the Zags got a huge lift from senior guard Jazmine Redmon. She scored 15 points on 5-of-8 from the floor and 3-for-3 from the 3-point line.

Graves sang her praises, noting that Redmon currently has 45 assists to only nine turnovers on the year.

“Both Taylor Karr and Courtney (Vandersloot) twice led the nation in assist-to-turnover ratio. For Redmon to be 5-to-1 (in the same category) is incredible,” Graves said.

 

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.

Nilles commits to Gonzaga

West Valley standout Shaniqua Nilles, a 5-11 guard, has committed to the Gonzaga women’s basketball team.

“I always wanted to go there,” she said. “It’s close to home. I’ve known coach (Kelly) Graves for a long time. They have a good program. My best friend, Jazmine Redmon (Mead), is there this year. Just a lot of good reasons.”

The Great Northern League MVP and 2A all-state player for the Eagles added, “I think I could be a good strength outside for them. I’m a taller guard. It’s going to be a challenge. I  know I’m going to have to work really hard and push myself.”
