Countdown to tip-off for Zags

Less than an hour before Gonzaga and Louisville tip-off in the Sweet 16, the Spokane Regional of the NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament.

And no, don't ask again, I'm not making my prediction public.

Just a couple of things I missed when I blogged at 6 a.m.. Bud Withers from The Seattle Times, which may make you nervous as it talks about the possibility of Graves coaching the Huskies; Michelle Voepel from ESPN.com looking at Courtney Vandersloot and Jackie Stiles.

Tennessee turns back Ohio State to make the Elite 8 in Dayton.

More to read until Sweet 16 tip-off

Good morning. Back to catch up with more stories out of the Spokane Regional of the NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament  before settling in to watch Angie Bjorklund (U-Hi) and Tennessee against Ohio State in the Dayton Regional.

First is columnist John Blanchette's glance back as the group that got this all started for the Gonzaga women, who face Louisville and freshman sensation Shoni Schimmel (above).

There's more, read on.

Gearing up for Gonzaga Sweet 16 in Spokane

Home from the Arena and time to catch up on the women's basketball news.

We have filed our game advances for the Spokane Regional. I'm on the Gonzaga-Louisville game, Greg Lee has the North Carolina-Stanford game. Do you think I need to thank Courtney Vandersloot for the Zags drawing the 6 p.m. game? That 8:30 tip is going to be a deadline nightmare. There is also today's column with John Blanchette's column questioning Gonzaga playing here and the Chris Anderson/Dan Pelle slide show from today's practices at the Arena. (By the way, there are 11,200 tickets to be sold - 600 seats go to bands and other necessary personnel - and less than 1,000 remained as of 4 p.m. on Friday.)

Read on for more.

Bowen is Gonzaga’s unsung hero

Headed down to the Arena to gather the news for the Spokane Regional in the NCAA Women's Basktball Tournament but first wanted to give you the news on Gonzaga's key player from Down Under (Kelly Bowen, pictured above). There should be plenty of reading later today.

Zags respect Louisville & more notes

A late post with a few things I've stumbled onto and a story on Gonzaga's reaction to facing Louisville on Saturday instead of Xavier. Read on.

And for your halftime reading, women’s hoops

Back in the old days - or is that the young days - today would be the start of my personal two-day vacation. After the deadline stress of state basketball, two days of recliner basketball recharged the batteries. (I think I'm starting to sound like our Cougar writer).

Gonzaga has changed all of that - in a good way. So what do we have about women's basketball as the NCAA Tournament bears down?

Well, so far I haven't found anything on Courtney Vandersloot winning another award (though I have the all-District team that was announced Wednesday) - but it's still early.

Central Washington has released its long time women's coach and given former Mead star Stacy Clinesmith the option to stay in an interim basis and apply for the head job.

Read on for my other discoveries.

News and notes from women’s basketball

OK .. we're ready to take on the world, or at least our world of women's basketball.

As you all know by now, Gonzaga is sacrificing the hoopla of heading off to an exotic site for the NCAA Tournament to sleep at home. There are other things to check out as well, including some unhappiness in Iowa City. Read on.
