While the men battle the Gaels in Spokane Thursday night, the Gonzaga's women's team will be in sunny Southern California playing Saint Mary's in Moraga.

The Zags (17-4, 5-0), unlike their male counterparts, go into Thursday's riding a high, you could say.

"We're looking forward to the road trip," said Courtney Vandersloot this week about playing in California. "Saint Mary's is always a tough place to play at and they always play us hard."
