A Quick Scout Of The Gonzaga Bulldogs

The 23-10 Utes are tasked with trying to take down the 31-3 Bulldogs in their second-round matchup.

Head coach Lynne Roberts noted it’s a little like looking in a mirror when scouting the Bulldogs which should provide a fun game Monday night.

“They are similar in that they have a post player that is really hard to defend one-on-one,” Roberts said. “She’s really good. It’s like us with Pili, right? It’s a risk to go one-on-one with Pili. Then, they have great shooters as well, and move the ball and run their stuff well. It’s like, if we hop off, we might give up threes, if we stay at the three-point line we might give up- you know. It is a little bit of looking in the mirror in that way as far as game planning. Trying to figure out what we could be most effective in defensively that might give them the most trouble.”

Fans Can Expect To See The Utah Women Put Up A Fight

There is obviously no way to predict exactly what will happen in the NCAA Tournament or just how far the Utah women will go.

“We’ve been really close, maybe like my third, fourth, fifth year, and we’d hit some bumps and would just kind of limp through to the end,” Roberts said. “This year, these guys dug deep, and I think what happens is, you get that experience, and for some of these guys this is the third year in a row for the NCAA Tournament. They aren’t going to give in. It speaks not only to the talent that we have, obviously, but their fortitude, and competitiveness. Adversity or not, we’re not going to get held back.”
