    Thanks TerpZag.

    I obviously missed Chandler in my post above. I did not pick up on CLF's nickname for CS. My apologies to CS and her family.

    The most surprising information to me was that CS got her Master's in only 3 years at GU (and 1 at Nebraska) and Ms. Rice getting her undergrad in 3 years without the use of a redshirt.

    For myself being on the 5 year plan (yes I worked a lot), to see these talented young ladies get their undergrad and graduate degrees in 3/4 years shows the dedication and desire they have to succeed not only on the court but also in the classroom.

    They are the very best definition of student athletes.

    Very well done ladies, one and all.

    For those of us who were not able to attend this year's graduation at Gonzaga, the Lady Zags own Nneka EnemKpali was selected as the graduate student speaker. She has some powerful words about her time at Gonzaga as the video coordinator and as a graduate student.

    Here is a link to her speech given to the students.


    Thanks Nneka,
