The Gonzaga women are working on their transition game. With Saturday’s game against BYU scrapped by COVID-19, the West Coast Conference changed its schedule on the fly and sent GU to play at Portland on Sunday. Tipoff is at 4 p.m.
Until this weekend, GU hadn’t missed a WCC game because of the pandemic – “controlling what we can control,” Coach Lisa Fortier said. At 12-2 overall and 7-0 in the conference, they are still one game ahead of BYU (8-2 overall, 4-1 in the WCC). The postponement was the fourth in the last five games for BYU, whose game at Portland on Thursday was scrapped hours before tipoff.
