Gonzaga women: Bulldogs primed for another run at NCAA Tournament


If good things come in threes, the Gonzaga women already have a head start.

The Zags are going for their third straight West Coast Conference regular-season and tournament titles, and they have just the personnel to do it.

The leaders are three senior captains – Laura Stockton, Zykera Rice and Chandler Smith – who couldn’t be more different, but are focused on the same goal: a third straight trip to the NCAA Tournament.

GU has all the ingredients for another big season. Fifth-year coach Lisa Fortier has what she calls a “heady, experienced” group that also will show more speed than usual, thanks to a three-guard lineup.

And if those players can step up and consistently hit from three-point range, it will be a season to remember....
