The University of Nevada women's basketball team closed out a four-game home stand with a 69-61 loss to BYU Tuesday night at Lawlor Events Center.

With the loss, Nevada falls to 4-4 on the season, while BYU improves to 7-0 on the year.

BYU jumped out to a 12-4 lead to start the game, shooting 4-6 from beyond the three-point line. Terilyn Moe got the Wolf Pack within 16-14 of the Cougars with a made basket at the 11:07 mark. BYU forward Lexi Eaton hit a three-pointer to give her team a 27-16 lead with 8:55 to play in the first half. Nyasha LeSure's layup with 2:17 on the clock cut the deficit to 33-28. Nevada trailed 34-32 at the half, led by 10 first half points by Moe.

Aja Johnson's basket in the paint at the 16 minute mark ended a four minute Nevada drought to start the second period. Xojian Harry drilled a three from the corner to extend the Cougars lead to 45-34 with 14:05 to play. Danika Sharp hit a pair of three-pointers on back-to-back Nevada possessions to get within nine of BYU at 57-48 with around seven minutes left in regulation. Johnson battled for an offensive rebound that led to a made runner by Moe to bring the score to 60-52. LeSure put in a free from throw for the Pack, before a Kim Beeston three-pointer stretched the BYU lead to 63-53 with under three minutes to play. The Cougars held off the Wolf Pack to win the game 69-61

Moe led Nevada with 19 points, while Sharp finished with 12 points. Aja Johnson pulled down a career-high 11 rebounds. Mimi Mungedi set a new career-high with five blocks. Nevada outrebounded BYU 45-39.

Nevada will travel to Salt Lake City, Utah next week for a road game against Utah. Tip-off is 5 p.m. at the Huntsman Center.
