Poor shooting dooms Lady Rebels again in 66-48 loss

The shooting woes continued Wednesday night for the UNLV women’s basketball team in a 66-48 Mountain West loss to Colorado State at Cox Pavilion.

The Lady Rebels (9-13, 6-4 MW) shot 31.7 percent from the field (19 of 60) against the first-place Rams (17-4, 9-1), four days after they shot 30.6 percent in a 30-point loss at Boise State. UNLV attempted only eight free throws, making five, while Colorado State was 18 of 24 from the line.

Reserve Rejane Verin had 14 points to lead the Lady Rebels, who committed 19 turnovers to the Rams’ 10. Mia Bell scored 13 but was 5 of 16 from the field, and Alana Cesarz added 10 points. Danielle Miller, who was averaging 13.0 points, shot 1 of 14 and scored two points.
