Vandersloot on her exit as zag player. What an amazing career and a great team.


“Different than I thought it would be,” she admitted. “I couldn’t help but just enjoy that 10 seconds, to walk off and hear the fans cheering, because I know deep in my heart they love us and are just as proud of us right now as they would be if we won the game.”


Coach Graves talks about the fans


“You saw all the people that were here and the people that have been following us, make no mistake about it, they’re Gonzaga fans,” said Graves, his voice beginning to crack.

“But Courtney Vandersloot brought these people here, and she deserves a ton of credit for that. She has made Gonzaga women’s basketball cool, and something people notice and love.”

I believe I know what you are saying but I think it is coming out wrong. Brian Michaelson, Andrew Sorenson, Heather Bowman, Stephanie Hawk, Shannon Mathews, Mark Spink, Mike Nilson, etc. etc. etc. Are just as much a ZAG as your list. Being one of the best players ever to put on a Zag uni does not make them "more" Zag.

Yes CV is one of the best ever to suit up and GU was very fortunate to have her. I loved watching her play. She is an amazing player and deserves national POY.

Two great pics of Courtney. The second was on the front page of the S-R yesterday. (Not the front page of the sports section--on the front page of the paper.)
