Lady Zags 92, Iowa 86 …

A defensive switch and career games from senior Courtney Vandersloot and junior Kayla Standish propelled the 11th-seeded Gonzaga Bulldogs past the sixth-seeded Iowa Hawkeyes 92-86 in a wildly entertaining NCAA women’s basketball tournament game Saturday afternoon before a sold-out crowd at the McCarthey Athletic Center. Vandersloot, a Kent native, poured in 34 points, moving within 11 of 2,000 career points. Standish, an Ellensburg native, poured in 30 as she made 15 of 20 shots from the field. It was a switch from a 2-3 zone to man to man in the second half that also proved pivotal for the Zags. Gonzaga (29-4) will take on the UCLA/Montana winner on Monday. Tipoff is at 6:30 p.m./Greg Lee, SR. More here.
