Gonzaga will face defending national champion Notre Dame in the opening game of the inaugural Vancouver Showcase on Nov. 22, organizers announced Thursday.
Gonzaga women’s basketball fans may be getting the best of all worlds in the nonconference schedule announced Thursday.
Basketball season will always be a grind, but life will get a bit easier this season for the Gonzaga women. After a two-year hiatus, the West Coast Conference is going back to the travel partner system, meaning there will be no more weeks with a single home and away game.
Emma Stach is back where she began, but richer for the experience of four years at Gonzaga. A fixture for the Zags, the high-energy guard is home in Germany, where she recently signed a professional contract in the top-flight women’s league.
Four weeks after going in the third round of the WNBA draft, former Gonzaga star Jill Barta was released Thursday by the Minnesota Lynx.
The Gonzaga coaches must have liked what they saw last November from Anamaria Virjoghe of Northwest Christian College. In an exhibition game at the Kennel, the 6-foot-5 Romanian had seven points, two rebounds and two steals in just 18 minutes of action. Now she’s a Zag.
Jill Barta may just get the best of both worlds.
The Gonzaga women overachieved again this year, and probably will need to do it again next season.
Jill Barta has a message for Gonzaga women’s basketball fans: Please try to understand.
With the surprise departure of Jill Barga, the Gonzaga women “have no choice but to move on,” coach Lisa Fortier said Thursday.
Gonzaga basketball star Jill Barta, who led the Zags to NCAA Tournament appearances the last two seasons, is moving on.
It really is all about the journey. Soon, Emma Stach will begin a new one, but Saturday was about the one that just ended.
