Nevada Release

12/7/2016

Following an opening quarter that saw the Wolf Pack hold a lead after the first 10 minutes of play, the Nevada women’s basketball team fell to Utah, 80-50, on Tuesday night.

The Pack (4-4) came out of the locker room energized in the opening minutes of play, which resulted in an early 5-0 lead at the six minute mark. After the Utes (8-0) used a 6-0 run of their own, the two teams traded baskets for the next two minutes before senior guard Stephanie Schmid knocked down her lone three-pointer of the game to reclaim a 15-13 lead.

Schmid finished the night with seven points and a team-high two assists. With Nevada continuing to display its will in the waning seconds of the quarter, sophomore guard MorningRose Tobey hustled after a loose ball to lay in a basket, extending Nevada’s lead to 17-13 entering the second period.

To start the final 10 minutes of the opening half, Utah used an 11-0 run to jump out ahead of Nevada and claim a 24-17. The Utes never looked back from that point forward, as the team outscored the Pack 28-6 in the second quarter and took a 41-23 advantage into halftime.

In the third quarter, junior guard Halie Bergman knocked down a basket, which she followed up on the next possession with her second three-pointer of the game. That basket from beyond the arc marked Bergman’s 200th point of her career. She finished the game with a team-high 12 points, her third game in double figures this season.

Though the Pack was down, Nevada remained aggressive throughout the fourth quarter, as the team went to the free throw line five times, connecting on four of its attempts. Despite holding Utah scoreless in the final 2:55, the Utes’ lead was too much to overcome, as they claimed the victory.

Nevada hits the road for the final time in nonconference action this weekend when it plays at San Diego on Saturday at 2 p.m.
