Nevada Release

11/13/2015

The Nevada women’s basketball team opened its 2015-16 season with an 84-47 loss at the hands of San Diego Friday night.

On the team’s ‘We Back Pat’ night, 1,119 fans paid a visit to Lawlor Events Center which means coach Jane Albright will donate $1,119 to the Pat Summitt Foundation.

The Toreros (1-0) were able to capitalize on 21 Wolf Pack (0-1) turnovers and turn those into 36 of their 84 points. USD also used its rebounding abilities to get the most out of its opening night, outrebounding the Pack by a 44-28 margin. For the game, San Diego shot 51.5 percent from the field and took 17 more shot attempts than Nevada.

The Wolf Pack did boast two scorers in double figures as first-year guard Stephanie Schmid totaled a team-high 12 points and senior Nyasha LeSure collected 11 points on 4-of-7 shooting. Schmid was near perfect from the free throw line, hitting 5-of-6 from the stripe.

Nevada hung with its opponent through the first quarter and only trailed by six heading into quarter two. The Toreros used a couple of runs however to stretch its lead to 16 points at halftime. A 12-0 outburst by USD to begin the third is when the team really began to pull away. San Diego used 61.3 percent (19-of-31) shooting in the second half to outscore the Pack 44-23.

Nevada continues its homestand with a contest against Montana State this Sunday at 2 p.m. Albright remains four wins shy of 500 for her career, meaning tickets are still $4.
