Gonzaga vs. Tennessee preview capsule

2: Overall record: 29-5

Overall record: 26-7

Coach: Lisa Fortier

Top scorer: Sunny Greinacher, 13.8

Top rebounder: Shelby Cheslek, 7.0

Keys to victory: Intensity. The Bulldogs upset George Washington and Oregon State by giving supreme effort to deny every pass and fighting for every loose ball. Gonzaga must also have patience if the first half goes poorly. In the last three games, Tennessee has averaged 13 percent lower shooting percentage in the second half than the first. If the guards can handle the pressure, Gonzaga has the size to score inside. Defensively, the Zags must be able to stop athletic players at every position.
