SPOKANE — Kayla Standish scored 19 points as 11th-seeded Gonzaga upset No. 3 Miami 65-54 on Monday to advance to the round of 16 in the NCAA women’s basketball tournament for the second consecutive season.
Katelan Redmon scored 16 points for Gonzaga (28-5), which was playing on its home floor in front of an overwhelmingly supportive sold-out crowd.
Shenise Johnson scored 20 points and had 13 rebounds for Miami (26-6), which was undone by poor shooting in the second half.
The game between two of the nation’s best offenses was expected to be high-scoring, but turned into a defensive battle. Miami pressed most of the game.
