Women’s college basketball: Colorado State at Nevada
January 29 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Nevada will return home to Lawlor Events Center to host the Rams of Colorado State this Wednesday, Jan. 29 at 6:30 p.m. for the team’s Black History Month celebration.
Nevada and Colorado State have already played one another this season, meeting earlier this month in Fort Collins, with the Rams coming out on top of a close 75-70 decision. In that game, the Wolf Pack got three superb individual performances from junior Miki’ala Maio, sophomore Essence Booker and freshman Dom Phillips. Maio was lights out on offense, scoring a career-high 20 points on 10-of-14 shooting from the field. She also added seven rebounds and three assists to her game. Booker was hot shooting the ball as well, connecting on four 3-pointers to post 18 points. For Phillips her 17 points also set a new career high as she knocked down three triples and grabbed a season-best seven rebounds.
The Wolf Pack will be looking to snap a two-game slide, losing both road contests at UNLV and New Mexico last week. The good news for Nevada though, is that it boasts a 7-3 record at home this season, including wins in four out of its last five at Lawlor Events Center. The Rams won their last time out, beating Utah State by one point on Saturday, but are just 2-3 in their last five games. CSU is led by a pair of student-athletes as Makenzie Ellis and Annie Brady are both averaging 10.7 points per game entering Wednesday’s game.
