Robinson Leads the Way, Pack Almost Breaks School Record
HONOLULU, Hawaii - The University of Nevada women's basketball team returned to its winning ways Monday, when it downed the University of Hawai'I 75-62 at the Stan Sheriff Center in Honolulu, Hawaii. Nevada broke a three-game skid, improving to 14-6 (3-4 WAC) while Hawai'i drops to 6-15 (0-8 WAC).
The Wolf Pack had an impressive night offensively holding control of the game from the start. The Pack shot 40 percent for the game on 24-60 from the field, but nailed 10 three-pointers for the second time this season. The mark was just one away from the school record set in 2002 and the most since the third game of the season.
Returning to her top form, senior Tahnee Robinson led all scorers with 27 points, 21 scored in the first half. Robinson had six three-pointers tying her career high, shooting 9-16 from the field. Junior Kayla Williams scored 12 points all in the second half, fouling out with just 19 minutes played. Senior Johnna Ward scored eight with two three-pointers, but had a scare in the second half when she went into the bench opposite the team bench. She was taken off court in a wheelchair, but after examination was just bruised up and no serious injury was detected.
Nevada will return home for a re-match with Utah State on Thursday at Lawlor Events Center at 7 p.m. Utah State won the first faceoff 81-69 in Logan, Utah back on Jan. 15.
