Wolverines top Roadrunners in home win

Wolverines top Roadrunners in home win

On Jan. 5, 2019, the women’s basketball team soared to their fourth straight home win, topping California State University Bakersfield 78-70.

Playing in front of the home crowd in their own Lockhart Arena, the Wolverines were able to pull ahead early on. By halftime, they led 44-38, and from there, they rode their lead out to the finish.

All five UVU starters finished in the double figures in scoring for the night. As a whole, UVU shot .510 from the field compared to CSUB’s .391, and knocked down 11 of their 18 threes. They also had a huge advantage on boards, out-rebounding the Roadrunners 44-27.

Junior forward Jordan Holland led the way with a team-high 17 points on an impressive 7-9 shooting, including going 3-4 from behind the arc. Junior guard Alexis Cortez also had a solid performance, knocking down four of her five three-point attempts and finishing with 16 points, 10 rebounds, and 4 steals.

While the win moves UVU’s home record to an impressive 8-2 for the season, they currently sit at 0-5 on the road. The Wolverines hope to carry their momentum from their game against  CSUB as they head to Washington to play Seattle University on Jan. 12.
