Game 24 vs. UNLV

A big halftime lead for BYU was dwindled down by a determined UNLV squad, but the Cougars prevailed as a Cassie King putback sealed the 53-52 victory.

Down 51-52 following a three-pointer by the Rebels’ Brittany Halberg with just 11 seconds remaining, BYU guard Jazmine Foreman drove to the basket and missed the layup, but King found position under the hoop to pull down the rebound and flip it over her shoulder for the game-winning shot.

BYU’s impressive first half performance gave the team a 27-16 halftime lead. Coming off the bench, freshman Dani Peterson got a season-high eight points by going a perfect 4-of-4 from the paint as the team went on a 22-0 run.

The two teams exchanged baskets in the early part of the second half as the Cougars managed to maintain a solid lead. Mindy Nielson provided BYU with nine points as UNLV’s Erica Helms countered with seven points to keep the Rebels in striking distance at 45-36 with seven minutes remaining.

Nielson led the Cougars with 13 points with Coriann Wood and King contributing 10 and 9 points, respectively.
