In the biggest moment of the season, the Fresno State women’s basketball team stepped up to the challenge and played better than ever, beating San Jose State 94-68 at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas.
After taking care of business against Nevada on Monday, the Bulldogs faced a tough challenge against the Spartans in the semifinals. Although Fresno State won the previous two meetings in the regular season, they were both tightly contested contests. That wasn’t the case Tuesday.
“I thought our kids were really ready to play, focused,” said head coach Jaime White. “Knocked down big shots, drew fouls, got to the free-throw line.”
The first four minutes were back and forth as each team had a solid start. San Jose State held a 9-8 lead at that point, but then Fresno State caught fire behind the play of forward Maddi Utti and guard Haley Cavinder.
