LAS VEGAS — Taelor Karr took a seat on the bench and watched her Gonzaga teammates go through practice drills. She twisted her upper body to the right, then to the left, trying to loosen up her ailing lower back.
"Keep an eye on this (drill), even though you can't go," coach Kelly Graves told his senior guard.
Karr, the conference player of the year, took a hard fall during Saturday's West Coast Conference tournament semifinal win over Brigham Young. She took it easy at practice Sunday and is "really questionable," according to Graves, for Monday's championship game against No. 2 seed San Diego (21-8).
"She's sore and she's hurting," Graves said. "She's a tough kid. I know she'll do the best she can to try to play, but the reality is she's not in good shape right now."
The top-seeded Bulldogs (26-5) are playing in their seventh straight title game.
