Women hopeful for win against Reno Wolfpack


    By Katherine Gholson

    After a season opening victory last Friday, the BYU women”s basketball team is working for another victory today against Nevada-Reno.

    Tip-off is at 7p.m. in the Marriott Center.

    Last season, Nevada went 3-26 overall, 2-17 in the Western Athletic Conference. This season, senior guard Amber Young has already been named WAC player of the week and the Wolf Pack is starting the season 2-0 for the first time in 21 years.

    Both teams have many new faces, but also have many experienced players as well.

    Two freshmen led the Cougars on Friday in a 76-56 victory over Southen Utah. Mary Martha Abell led the team in scoring with 14 points, while Mallary Gillespie followed with 12 points from four three-pointers.

    With many more fans at the SUU game than usual, the women hope to have impressed the fans enough to have the same amount of people at this game.

    Tickets are $4 for students without an all-sports pass and $5 for the general public.
