When Gonzaga and Stanford take the court Sunday the game will feature a bit of sibling rivalry. Elle Tinkle plays for Gonzaga. Her sister, Joslyn plays for Stanford.
What are the chances?
Elle, a freshman with the Zags, has a chance to go up against her big sister. Surely it will be a matchup worth watching – whether in person or on SWX.
"It's going to be different for sure," said Elle Tinkle. "I'm just really excited because, really, would I have the opportunity to play a team that's ranked No. 1 in the nation, let alone my sister."
"Honestly, what a thrill for the Tinkle family," said coach Kelly Graves. "They have a lot of family in this area, with Wayne being a Spokane boy. What a thrill to have two daughters playing on this kind of a stage at two great programs. I know they just have to be tickled pink and really excited about it."
Sunday's game at The Kennel starts at 2 p.m. It can be seen on SWX-TV.
