Nevada Hosts Wyoming Wednesday
Feb. 11, 2013
RENO, Nev. -
The University of Nevada women’s basketball team (6-16, 1-8 MW) returns home to Lawlor Events Center Wednesday night, looking to snap an eight-game skid when the team hosts Wyoming (18-4, 7-2 MW) at 6:30 p.m.
“We will look to come out and compete at a high level Wednesday,” head coach Jane Albright said. “Wyoming really took it to us in our loss in Laramie a few weeks ago. “We are excited to have one game this week that we can put all of our energy into. The “Play for Kay” initiative is a great tradition to honor the legacy of Kay Yow and all of those who support the fight against breast cancer.“
Wyoming leads the overall series with Nevada 9-4. The Cowgirls defeated the Wolf Pack 92-41 in the last meeting on Jan. 12 in Laramie. Junior Amber Smith led Nevada in the loss with a career high 12 points. Wyoming is led by forward Chaundra Sewell’s 15.1 ppg., and 9.7 rpg.
Fans are encouraged to wear pink in support of the Kay Yow Cancer Fund, Moms on the Run, and the fight against breast cancer. Fans who attend the game in a pink t-shirt are in for free.
A silent auction will be held with all of the proceeds donated to the Kay Yow foundation and Mom’s on the Run. The silent auction will begin at 5:30 p.m. Last year the Wolf Pack raised over $2,000 and will look to break the record this year.
