Senior Molly Nohr
Jan. 13, 2007
The New Mexico Lobos shot 50 percent (10-for-20) from beyond the arc on Saturday afternoon at Moby Arena en route to a 73-42 victory over the Colorado State Rams. With the loss, the Rams are now 6-10 (1-3 MWC), while the Lobos pick up their first conference win of the year and improve to 11-6 (1-3 MWC).
Colorado State, playing with only eight players available to head coach Jen Warden following Friday's suspension of four student-athletes, was overpowered by the preseason-favorite Lobos, but continued to battle throughout the contest.
Senior Molly Nohr led the Rams with 11 points and freshman Juanise Cornell added nine points and a game-high 12 rebounds, one shy of her career-best, but it was not enough as New Mexico heated up from outside early in the contest, hitting 8-for-12 from 3-point range in the game's opening stanza.
Colorado State trailed by just four points, 14-10, with 10:30 remaining in the half before New Mexico rattled off eight straight points, including back-to-back 3-pointers from Julie Briody, to push the lead to 22-10 at the 8:23 mark. The Lobos then closed the half on a 12-0 run, sparked by eight points from Katie Montgomery, who finished as the game's leading scorer with a career-high 22 points and became New Mexico's all-time leader in three-point baskets.
Coming out of the locker room with a 39-17 advantage, New Mexico began to pound the ball inside to forward Dionne Marsh, who responded with all 11 of her points coming in the second half.
Sophomore Kelly Finley, starting her first game at Colorado State, recorded five points and two assists in 16 minutes of action, and center Marilyn Moulton added four points and six rebounds before fouling out with 11 minutes left to play. Coming off the bench, freshman Nya Mason recorded six points and five rebounds in 18 minutes, while Ashley McFarland added three points and four steals in 27 minutes.
The Rams continue Mountain West action, heading back on the road to face BYU in Provo, Utah at 7 p.m. MT on Thursday night and then taking on the San Diego State Aztecs at 3 p.m. MT on Saturday afternoon in San Diego, Calif.
