Hannah Tvrdy had 10 points and eight rebounds and Ellen Nystrom nine points and nine rebounds for the Rams, who held the Lady Rebels to three third-quarter points on 1-for-13 shooting.


At Fertitta Tennis Complex, Evaldo Neto posted a singles victory and teamed with Jakob Amilon for two doubles wins in leading the Rebels (4-0) to 4-0 triumphs over Youngstown State (4-2) and UC Riverside (1-6).

Ruben Alberts, Courtney Lock and Charlie Croxford each won in singles and doubles.


At Lincoln, Neb., Kaysee Pilgrim placed first among collegiate competitors in the high jump with a measurement of 5 feet, 11½ inches, and four Rebels posted personal bests in the Frank Sevigne Husker Invitational.
