Broncos Bombard Utah State 80-38

It wasn't enough that this year's Boise State women's basketball team scored their first-ever road wins at Louisiana Tech and Hawai'i. It seems the team has bigger goals in mind. The red-hot Broncos scorched Utah State last night 80-38 in Taco Bell Arena in a game that sent shock waves throughout the WAC and beyond.

The Boise State women's basketball team put on a clinic last night in Taco Bell Arena, dominating Utah State 80-38.  Rebecca Kepileno poured in a career high 22 points and controlled the boards with 12 rebounds, while fellow sophomore Jessica Thompson added 21 points.  With the win, the Lady Broncos remained perfect in the Western Athletic Conference with a 6-0 mark and advanced their season record to 15-4.

Coach Gordy Presnell's Broncos raced to a 13-2 lead and held a 38-9 advantage at halftime.  The Bronco defense was aggressive and relentless, holding the Aggies to 11.5% shooting (3-26).  Jackie Lee led the way with eight points and seven rebounds in the opening half.

The Lady Broncos did not let up, extending their lead to over points late in the game.  Michelle Hessing chipped in 10 points, Lee finished with nine and freshman Ja'Lara Walker recorded her best career game with six points and three rebounds in 12 minutes.     

Danyelle Snelgro led Utah State with 10 points, three rebounds, and three assists. Brittany Phillips backed her up with eight points and a team high seven rebounds.

The loss drops Utah State to 7-11 overall and 3-3 in league. Boise State returns to action this Saturday night when they host Idaho at 7 in Taco Bell Arena.
