Nevada women close out home stand
Home has been good to the University of Nevada women’s basketball team over the past three weeks.
Nevada has played four home games in a row and won each time, and today the Wolf Pack will shoot for five straight when it hosts Northern Arizona in a non-conference contest at 5 p.m. at Lawlor Events Center in Reno.
The Wolf Pack boasts a 7-3 overall record and has won five of six games at Lawlor so far this season. Northern Arizona comes in with a 3-6 record.
This is Nevada’s first game since Dec. 22, when Kate Smith scored 20 points and grabbed seven rebounds in a 60-49 victory against Idaho State. Smith, a 6-foot-2 freshman from McQueen High School in Reno, was named Big West Conference Player of the Week for that performance. She is the team’s leading scorer with a 19.5 average.
