Keohohou's 20th Home Run Powers Cougars to Next Round

MWC Co-Player of the Year Oli Keohohou hit her 20th home run of the season to lead BYU past UNLV 6-0 in the opening game of the MWC Tournament. BYU plays No. 2 CSU at 3 p.m. MDT today.

SAN DIEGO -- Mountain West Conference Co-Player of the Year Oli Keohohou hit her 20th home run of the season to power the Cougars past No. 6 seed UNLV in the opening game of the MWC Tournament. BYU improved to 34-15 while UNLV drops to 20-38 on the season.

Sophomore Niki Andersen (9-5) pitched a complete game shutout allowing only three hits through seven innings while striking out four Rebels. Jackie Kerrigan (15-15) picked up the loss for UNLV.

After four scoreless innings, Keohohou got things going in the bottom of the fifth inning with a blast over the left field fiend. Senior Brooke Cadiente, who was named to the All-MWC team for the first time in her career last night, reached on a walk and was later brought home by single from junior shortstop Kate Walker.

The Cougars poured in four runs in the sixth inning led by sophomore Lauren Watsons triple. Watson was also named to the All-MWC team for her first career selection. Freshman Neta Lei singled to score Watson. Lei also was named to the All-MWC team. Keohohou then drew an intentional walk. Cadiente then doubled to right center to score Lei and Gerhauser, who pinch ran for Keohohou.

BYU will play No. 2 seed Colorado State at 3 p.m. MDT today. BYU won three of four contests this season including a sweep on April 25 at home.
