Sure, the Zags lost on Sunday to the best team in women's college basketball. So what else can they do other than get back up and play again?
Gonzaga allowed three Cardinal players to combine for 55 of the team's 69 points. But they have no other choice but to play on, as they host Eastern Washington on Tuesday. The game, seen live on SWX, tips off at 6 p.m.

"I've always thought that is the best thing about basketball: if you have a game like this (Stanford game) you can get it out of your mind very quickly, and we need to," said coach Kelly Graves.
Graves went on to say his players need to focus on the task ahead of them Tuesday: Eastern Washington.
"Eastern always plays us tough here," he said. "We have a chance to get right back up on the horse on Tuesday night."
Gonzaga has not lost to the Eagles at the McCarthey Athletic Center since 2001.
