SPOKANE, Wash. – While their male counterparts are fighting it out in Hawaii at the Maui Invitational, Gonzaga's women's team will play in the comfortable confines of the McCarthey Athletic Center on Wednesday night.

The Zags host North Dakota Wednesday, with tipoff at 6 p.m. 

The Zags are coming off a huge win last Sunday, beating Washington 81-52.  It was the Zags' second straight win over a Pac-10 opponent and their third of the season.  Their lone loss happened at South Dakota State in the second game of the season.

The Fighting Sioux from North Dakota are 1-3 so far this season and are in the second year of transition to Division I basketball as a member of the Great West Conference.  They're led by leading scorer Kayla Bagaason, who averages 16.3 points per game and 4 rebounds.

After playing North Dakota, the Zags hit the road for a Saturday matchup at Stanford.  The Cardinal, ranked No. 2 in the country, hasn't lost a game yet this season.  They have five players who average in the double digits, including Kayla Pedersen at 18.8 ppg. 

Gonzaga and Stanford have never played each other before.
