As the Gonzaga women warmed up for practice Tuesday afternoon, Jill Townsend was asked whether it was difficult to play while wearing a protective facemask.

Taycee Wedin scored 24 points, Sam Simons added 22 and Saint Mary’s used a dominant first quarter to upset No. 11 Gonzaga 70-60 on Saturday in Moraga, California.

Gonzaga women’s basketball standout Katie Campbell will miss the remainder of the season due to a knee injury she suffered in last week’s win over Brigham Young, the school announced Friday.
Jill Townsend scored 17 points, Jenn Wirth notched a double-double and No. 11 Gonzaga downed Pacific 83-65 on Thursday.
