SPOKANE, Wash. -

UPDATE: Gonzaga Women beat Wisconsin at The Kennel Friday Night, 62-53. They next face Monmouth at home on November 18th at 6pm.


Fresh off an exciting win at USC, Gonzaga is gearing up Friday to face an even tougher opponent: Wisconsin.

Wisconsin is a much more experienced team and a major power in the Big 10 conference. Coach Kelly Graves hopes The Kennel will work its magic once again, as he prepares for another NCAA Tournament-caliber team.

"They have experienced players and a couple of marquis kids," said Graves. "Taylor Wurtz is as good a player as you're going to find, she was All-Big 10. They're a typical Big 10 team. They're big, they're strong, they're very physical and they're very skilled and schooled defensively."
