UPDATED: Mon., Jan. 28, 2019, 9:23 p.m.

It’s halfway through the West Coast Conference women’s season, which would be the perfect time for a breather. No chance of that for Gonzaga, which faces perhaps its toughest road trip of the season this week against Pacific on Thursday and Saint Mary’s on Saturday.
