“We had a very consistent performance from a team aspect and we played hard-fought defense,” said MSU head coach Tricia Binford. “It was a very physical game and Nevada challenged us on the glass. They did a great job forcing us on some decisions, so we will have to clean up on our rebounding and turnovers.”

Dawkins scored ten of her team-high 12 points in the opening half. The Bozeman product connected on six-of-nine from the field. Newcomer Riley Nordgaard chipped in nine points, while Hommes, Peyton Ferris and Annika Lai each added eight.

“I’m really happy for Jasmine breaking the 1,000-point milestone,” Binford said. “She has been such a consistent performer over the course of her career.”

Hommes became the 21st Bobcat in history to reach the 1,000-point plateau.

For the game, Montana State shot 52 percent from the field. In addition, the Bobcats hit at a 50 percent clip from the beyond the three-point line.

“Lexi was fantastic offensively and Peyton gave us a huge physical spark,” Binford said. “I thought Lindsay (Stockton) did a nice job running our team. I’m pleased that we’re getting contributions from everyone this early in the season.”

Nevada was paced by Nyasha Lesure with a game-high 20 points. The Wolf Pack held a slight 33-29 edge in rebounding.

MSU was led under the glass by Nordgaard with six rebounds, while Hommes and Ferris pulled down five, apiece.
