Wolf Pack Women Fall to Spartans

Posted: Updated:

Nevada Release

2/18/2016

Fourteen percent offense in the second half was the downfall in a 76-63 loss for the Nevada women’s basketball team to visiting San Jose State Wednesday night.

A bright spot for the Wolf Pack (4-20, 3-10 MW) came from sophomore Teige Zeller who collected her first career double-double. The New Mexico native scored 11 points and pulled down 18 rebounds, 13 of which came on the offensive glass. Her 18 rebounds are the most by a Pack player since Mimi Mungedi’s 29 in February of last year, which also came against the Spartans (11-14, 9-5 MW).

Thanks to Zeller’s work down low, the Pack outrebounded its opponent 56-45, which is a season-high number. Nevada’s tenacity on the glass led to a collection of 32 offensive rebounds and 21 second chance points. Other players to reach double figures included junior Stephanie Schmid with 14 and redshirt freshman AJ Cephas with 12. Senior Kelsey Kaelin posted another game without turning the ball over and dished out four assists. In her last six games she has accumulated 24 assists to just three turnovers.

It was a high paced first quarter as the two teams combined to scored 51 points and the Spartans took the narrow 26-25 lead into the second. It was Nevada’s second-highest points scored in a quarter this season. Right at the three minute mark of the second, Zeller’s jump shot gave the Wolf Pack its first lead of the game, 37-35. Nevada was able to build on that lead after holding SJSU scoreless for over a three minute span. The Pack sat at a five-point lead with 20 seconds to play before halftime, but a scoop layup by Myzhanique Ladd brought it down to just a three-point lead for the Pack at the break.

Third quarter shooting woes continued tonight for Nevada as the team struggled to hit its shots. The Pack was just 3-of-23 (13 percent) in the third quarter and the bad luck continued into the fourth quarter. Combined for the second half, Nevada connected on 14.3 percent (6-of-42) from the field. The Spartans outscored the Pack 37-21 in the last two quarters of play.

Another element that did Nevada in was the long distance shooting by San Jose State. SJSU knocked down 11 shots from beyond the arc, while the Pack was just 4-of-26 (15.4 percent) in that category.

Nevada hosts interstate rival UNLV this Saturday at 4 p.m. for its annual Play4Kay pink game and also a Governor’s Series contest. All fans wearing a pink shirt will receive free entry.
