Blanchette: GU women develop new identity with similar results

Steal, pass, layup. It can still be that elementary. In the deciding moments of Gonzaga’s 69-58 women’s basketball victory over San Diego on Saturday, it happened twice in the space of maybe 30 seconds – guard Taelor Karr picking the pocket of the Toreros’ Amy Kame, and then locating a teammate flashing down court. Not unlike a ratty security blanket fetched from a closet shelf, because of these easy points the Zags would be less vulnerable at the finish to whatever long 3s USD might wing in late, or even their own frailties.

Katelan Redmon, Gonzaga women top Toreros

Head coach Kelly Graves’ unhurried tempo and ease in tone was contrary to his team’s delivery of an adrenaline rush to the fifth-largest Gonzaga women’s basketball crowd in McCarthey Athletic Center history.

Gonzaga women power past San Francisco

It was a night of individual firsts for the Gonzaga University women’s basketball team. Winning was not one of them, as those come quite often for the 23rd-ranked Bulldogs.

Zags’ freshmen guards play with veteran savvy

Kevin Pangos and Gary Bell Jr. apparently didn’t get the memo that true freshmen guards tend to struggle at times against quality collegiate competition, especially on the road in packed arenas. They’ve gone against experienced Pac-12 guards and two of the better backcourts in the Big Ten Conference. They’ve tangled with Notre Dame’s dandy starting guards. They encountered perhaps their biggest challenge to date Saturday against Xavier’s Tu Holloway and Mark Lyons. Holloway was an All-American last season and one writer’s preseason pick as national player of the year. Lyons, who earned All-Atlantic 10 honors last season, is averaging 17.2 points per game.

Pangos sparks Zags past Cougs

Kevin Pangos, the nation. The nation, Kevin Pangos. Gonzaga’s freshman guard hit nine 3-pointers and scored 33 points, sparking the Bulldogs past rival Washington State 89-81 Monday night in front of 6,000 at the McCarthey Athletic Center and a nationwide audience on ESPN.

Ex-Zag Pargo raves about two seasons with teams in Israel

Jeremy Pargo’s goal hasn’t changed, just the route to get there. And he doesn’t mind the path he’s been on since completing his eligibility in the Gonzaga men’s basketball program in 2009. Pargo has won a couple of championships playing professionally for teams in Israel, he’s visited numerous countries and he feels it’s just a matter of time before he realizes his goal of making the NBA.

GU women pound Portland; title game next

It had all the elements of a typical Gonzaga women’s basketball rout of an overmatched opponent, and a couple others that were particularly satisfying for head coach Kelly Graves.

GU students – brothers from Egypt – watch developments closely

Nezar Hussain and his brother Anas watched from half a world away as Egyptians mobilized by the millions and removed a stone-faced president from power. The Gonzaga University students grew up in Cairo but came to study engineering in the Pacific Northwest.

Still top dog

On a day when the Gonzaga women’s basketball program said goodbye to its most prolific offensive player, the Bulldogs once again made a statement with defense. The 21st-ranked Zags locked up a share of their sixth straight West Coast Conference championship Saturday afternoon with an impressive 87-45 Senior Day drubbing of third-place Pepperdine before 4,829 fans, the third-largest McCarthey Athletic Center crowd for a women’s game.
