Nevada Women's Basketball Loses at SJSU

Posted: Updated:

Opening Mountain West play Thursday night, the Nevada women’s basketball team dropped a 107-84 decision at San Jose State.

The Spartans (4-9, 1-0 MW) used a 31-point third quarter, which included nine three-pointers, to create a lead too great for the Wolf Pack (6-6, 0-1 MW) to overcome. SJSU began the third quarter on a 19-3 run and did not relinquish its lead. The Spartans hit 14 shots from beyond the arc in the game at a 46.7 percent clip. Nevada hit 11 itself but shot just 34.2 percent for the game.

The 107 points put up by the Spartans is a season high. Nevada’s 84 points is its third highest of the season and its 11 three-pointers are a new season high. Junior Halie Bergman, who entered halftime with three personal fouls, produced the first 20-point game of her career as she finished with a team-high 21. Bergman hit five shots from long range, which also set a new career high.

Senior Stephanie Schmid also reached double figures, pouring in 16 points for the Wolf Pack. Sophomore Terae Briggs grabbed 14 rebounds, which tied her career-high, and nine offensive boards. Briggs fell two points shy of her third double-double of the year. Fellow sophomore AJ Cephas, who was looking for her third straight double-double, posted eight points, eight rebounds, three blocks and three steals.

Nevada had a solid night from the free throw line, connecting on 21-of-28 from the charity stripe. Junior T Moe, who ranks inside the top 15 in the nation in free throw shooting percentage, was a perfect 4-of-4 from the line.

San Jose State was led by its senior guard Dezz Ramos, who scored a game-high 40 points. Ramos’ 40-point night set a new career high and is the second-most points in a single game by a San Jose State player.

Nevada has a quick turnaround as it prepares to host Fresno State this Saturday, Dec. 31 at 2 p.m. from Lawlor Events Center.
