Game day for Gonzaga women in NCAA tournament: Round Two

We're back courtside at the McCarthey Athletic Center for the second round of the women's NCAA basketball tournament where the 11th-seeded Gonzaga Bulldogs and No. 3 Miami Hurricanes will tipoff in a little over a half hour. Vince Grippi will have an online story posted immediately following the game, and my story will follow along with a notebook from Greg Lee and myself.

In case you missed our advance, here's a story focusing on the Hurricanes that ran in this morning's sports section. And if you want a refresher, here's our game story from Gonzaga's win over Rutgers in the first round of the tournament and Greg Lee's story on Miami's victory over Idaho State.

LeBron To Decide Future Tonight

MikeK (via Facebook): I hope LeBron chooses the Vision Quest U-12 Girls basketball team in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. There would need to be a few policy changes (you, know gender and stuff) but I think the attendance would go up and we’d win those close tournament games. Fingers crossed!

Question: LeBron James, the brightest among the free agent stars in the NBA, will announce tonight during on a sports television program, which team he’ll sign with, probably for the next 5 or 6 years. Some say he’ll remain with Cleveland. Others that he’ll move to Miami. Either way, do you think we’ve reached a point of no return when a free agent can command a television program to announce his decision?
