UNLV Head Coach Lindy La Rocque called a timeout with 5 ½ remaining in the second period. Whatever she said needs to be bottled because the Lady Rebels finished the half with a 15-0 scoring run. Alyssa Brown scored 8 during the span and was perfect in the first half, 6-for-6 from the field for 12 points and 8 rebounds.

UNLV led 37-18 at halftime.

Brown finished with 17 points and 12 rebounds. Desi-Rae Young recorded her 15th double-dobule of the season with 16 points and 10 rebounds. Essence Booker scored four points and set a career-high with 12 assists.
