Women's NCAA Bracket Update: Gonzaga's Run Continues With Win Over Louisville, 76-69

Playing at home in front of a wild crowd at Spokane Arena, the Gonzaga Bulldogs’ dream run through the NCAA Tournament continued on Saturday night. The No. 11 seed Bulldogs have pulled off three consecutive upsets — all in Spokane — to become the lowest seed to make an Elite Eight in Women’s NCAA Tournament history, capped by a 76-69 win over Louisville in the Sweet 16.

It was the Courtney Vandersloot show once again for the Bulldogs. Vandersloot had a complete game, finishing with 29 points, five rebounds, seven assists and seven steals. Janelle Bekkering had 15 points, Kelly Bowen had 12 and Katelan Redmon had 10 points for the Lady Zags. Shoni Schimmel had a team-high 18 points for Louisville in the loss.

Gonzaga’s Cinderella run continues on Monday with the first Elite Eight appearance in school history. The Bulldogs will play either Stanford or North Carolina.
