Nevada women close out home stand

Staff report

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.
