The UVU women’s basketball team will be back on its home court Tuesday Nov. 24 at 7:05 p.m. to take on the Boise State Broncos.
This game will be “hometown hero” night for senior Blake Reynolds because she hails from Boise. Admission for the game will be $1 if you’re from the state of Idaho and free if you’re from Boise.
The game will be the third meeting between the two teams in the last three seasons. UVU took on Boise State during the 2006-07 season on its home court winning 81-66. The Wolverines took the rematch last season winning 73-70. During the 2007-08 season the Wolverines and Broncos were not scheduled to meet.
In last season’s game against Boise State, UVU barely clinched the win. Both teams struggled to get a go at offense in the first half, but the Wolverines went into the second half with a seven-point lead.
The game came down to the last minute. Sandy Wall hit a crucial lay-up for UVU with less than a minute left. In the last 27 seconds, Asumi Nakayama hit four free-throws allowing the Wolverines to take the win by only three points. Reynolds showed off her talent in her hometown grabbing a career high seven rebounds and contributing six points.
The lady Wolverines will head out to Bozeman, Mo. on its second road trip of the season over Thanksgiving break for the Wingate Thanksgiving Classic Nov. 27 – 28. UVU will take on Winthrop and either Montana State or Southern Utah.
