LARAMIE, Wyo. — The Wyoming Cowgirls play their final road game of the season on Saturday, as they travel to take on San Diego State in a 2 p.m. contest. The team is looking to bounce back from a 71-62 loss Thursday night at New Mexico.

Saturday’s game will be broadcast live on the Mountain West Network and can be heard across the Cowgirl Radio Network with David Settle on the call.

Wyoming was led by Allyson Fertig in the Cowgirls’ loss in Albuquerque on Thursday, as she tied a career-high with 24 points on 11-of-15 shooting. It marked the third time this season that Fertig has scored 20 or more in a game and the fifth time in her career. Quinn Weidemann also ended in double figures as she chipped in with 13. Tommi Olson and Malene Pedersen led the Cowgirls with five and four assists, respectively.

Fertig is now averaging 14.1 points and 8.1 rebounds per game during conference play this season, and is shooting 62.6% from the field and is also averaging over two blocks per game defensively in Mountain West action. Weidemann and Pedersen also come in averaging double-digit scoring in conference play, averaging 11.2 and 10.5 points per game, respectively. As a team, the Cowgirls are shooting nearly 46-percent from the field through 15 MW games, despite shooting under 30-percent from 3-point range.

San Diego State is led by All-Mountain West performer in Sophia Ramos, who leads the team averaging 12 points per game. Ramos also leads the team with 51 made 3-pointers and is third with 43 steals. The Aztecs are well-balanced offensively, as five other players are averaging 7.9 points per game or better. Asia Avinger and Mercedes Staples score in double figures at 11.9 and 10.9 points per game, respectively.

SDSU is the top defensive Mountain West squad, holding opponents to just 56 points per game on 38% shooting.

Though this is the Cowgirls’ last road battle, they’ll finish the season off with two more games in Laramie, facing Nevada on Feb. 23 and then closing the regular season out with the latest installment of the Border War, facing Colorado State on Feb. 25.
