Nevada (7-17, 3-10) was led by Nyasha LeSure with 11 points. The closest the Wolfpack got was within seven points at the 14:18 mark of the first half. Nevada shot only 36 percent from the floor.
Woodward drained four 3's in the first seven minutes of the game. She added a pair late in the half, which included a 25-footer, for a 34-19 Cowgirl lead. UW was ahead 38-24 at the break. They extended their edge to 51-30 just five minutes into the second half.
