Cal Poly shot 53.1 percent from the field in the opening half, while Nevada shot 23.8 percent. Ariana Elegado had 17 first half points for the Mustangs on 5-7 shooting from beyond the three-point line.

The Mustangs advantage hovered around 19 points for the first ten minutes of the second half. A pair of free throws by Jonae Ervin matched Cal Poly's largest lead of the game at 65-40 with 6:30 to play. Cal Poly finished the half shooting 48.4 percent from the field in the period, to 26 percent for Nevada, as the Mustangs won the game 82-57. Elegado led all scorers with 24 points. Mimi Mungedi was the lone Wolf Pack scorer in double-digits with 11 points. Nevada outrebounded Cal Poly 49-44.
