The Fresno State women’s basketball team suffered an 83-35 blowout loss on March 11 to the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, during the second round of the Mountain West tournament.

“Our kids, they played hard. I think we’ve had a good season. We have a lot of young kids that are getting better with every game,” said Fresno State Head Coach Jaime White in a streamed post-game press conference.

The Rebels are the top team in the Mountain West Conference, and with the win, they improved to a 28-2 record on the season.

The scoring started when Rebel forward Alyssa Brown made a layup early in the first quarter for a 2-0 lead.

Buckets went back-and-forth as the Bulldogs started fairly strong, but they failed to score double digits in any quarter other than the first.

After a relatively close first quarter where Fresno State trailed 19-13, UNLV went on a 25-7 run in the second quarter, and it was never close again.

The final score was 83-35. The Rebels managed to outscore their average of 80 points per game while playing strong defense against the Bulldogs.

Brown dominated on the court, scoring 16 points and bringing in nine rebounds before having her playing time cut down once the lead was big enough.

Fresno State forward Mia Jacobs was one of the team’s bright spots in the loss, scoring 7 points and bringing in four rebounds.

Despite the loss, Jacobs still reflected on the achievements of the season after the game.

“It’s exciting to see how much we’ve grown since the start of the season to now and then obviously we have all of offseason,” Jacobs said in a streamed post-game press conference.

Fresno State finished in ninth place in the Mountain West going 16-17 overall and 9-11 in conference play.

UNLV will move on in the Mountain West tournament and Fresno State’s season will end here.
