The Fresno State women's basketball team improved to 3-1 in conference play Saturday with a 74-56 win over Nevada at the Lawlor Events Center.
The Bulldogs hit 11 3-pointers in the win – the 13th-straight victory over the Wolf Pack.
"[Nevada] just kept fighting,” head coach Raegan Pebley said. “We'd build a lead and then they would cut it to five and they were really hard to put away because they have team that has shooters and fighters.
"We just tried to slow the game down is all we tried to do. We called the press off a little bit and did some things to adjust to their zone defense a little bit and were able to find some good inside shots."
Junior guard Ki-Ki Moore led the Bulldogs with 16 points, six rebounds and four assists.
Guards Taylor Thompson and Bree Farley each added 14 points, respectively.
Fresno State trailed Nevada just once in the first minute of the game but went on to lead the remainder of the match.
For about seven minutes in the second half, the Bulldogs held the Wolf Pack to 48 points while the ‘Dogs added 16 points to their lead.
Fresno State went 29-of-58 from the field and 11-of-22 from the arc.
"Ideally, what you want to see happen is that you don't just settle for three's," Pebley said. "Those three's are going to open up inside shots and inside shots are going to open up the perimeter game. You move the ball and not just find a good shot, but find the best shot."
Nevada is now 6-10 overall and 1-2 in conference play.
Fresno State now improves to 11-6 overall with a dozen league games remaining.
The ‘Dogs will return home Jan. 23 to host Boise State at 7 p.m.
