๐Ÿ€Basketball: The No. 19 Gonzaga women had a bit of a scare on Tuesday night, just managing to hold off BYU for the 63โ€“56 victory. Transfer guard Cierra Walker came up big in crunch time, draining back-to-back corner three-pointers in the final two minutes to seal the deal. The winning streak lives on!

  • The No. 1 Gonzaga men had a schedule change and will face Pacific instead of LMU tonight at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT. As the only school with three players on the Wooden Award Late Season Top 20 list (MVP of MBB), all we can say is, go Zags. 

๐ŸVolleyball: Whether you run with the Huskies or the Cougs, womenโ€™s volleyball is in action for all to enjoy tonight at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT. Both squads are 3-1 and ranked in the Top 25. 

  • When No. 11 UW goes up against Oregon State, keep an eye on opposite Samantha Dreschel (pronounced DREX-ULL), who had a career-high 24 kills in last Saturdayโ€™s tense five-set win. 

No. 24 Washington State takes on a ranked opponent in No. 18 UCLA. Standout middle blocker Magda Jehlรกล™ovรก (pronounced YA-HALA-SHA-VA), who had 11 kills and 7 blocks last Saturday, will look to continue to show off her complete game.
