Bowman sets record

GU women sail to another win

Don’t think the Heather Bowman Watch is going to end any time soon. The prolific Gonzaga senior, who set the West Coast Conference women’s basketball scoring record two weeks ago, added the school record to her list of accomplishments Saturday afternoon during the Bulldogs’ 93-53 win over San Francisco before 3,202 fans at McCarthey Athletic Center With 2,018 points, Bowman also passed former GU men’s player Jim McPhee (2,015) and only trails legendary Frank Burgess, who scored 2,196 points at Gonzaga from 1958-1961. “I remember coming in as a freshman, my goal was playing time,” Bowman said after her historic game. “My wildest dream was starting on a college team. I didn’t have any idea it would go this far.” Bowman, a Lewis and Clark graduate, has started all 118 games and missed six with injuries while the Bulldogs have gone 94-30.
