MADRID, SPAIN – The Nevada women’s basketball team dropped its first of three international contests on its foreign tour Tuesday evening to CB Alcobendas, 67-63.
The new-look Wolf Pack, which features eight newcomers, held the lead for most of the game but CB Alcobendas mounted a comeback in the fourth quarter, taking the lead for the first time. Trailing by 10 with under three minutes to play in the game, Nevada mounted a comeback of its own. The Pack went on a 8-0 run and came within one basket of tying its opponent as the final minute of play began, but could not find the tying bucket.
Sophomore Imani Lacy was the only Pack player to hit double figures as she recorded 10 points and added four rebounds. Fellow sophomore Essence Booker fell just one point shy of hitting double digits as she finished the game with nine points and contributed five rebounds and one assist. Scoring was fairly balanced up and down the lineup as seven of the 13 players to see time on the floor scored at least six points. Newcomer LaPraisjah Johnson totaled seven points and led the team with seven rebounds.
Nevada returns to the court against the Valencia All-Stars this Thursday at 11 a.m. local time from the city of Valencia.
