Boise State won for the fifth consecutive time in Taco Bell Arena, and moves to 3-2 in Mountain West play.

Lenhardt's 22 points pushed her into sole possession of eighth-place for career scoring at Boise State with 1,179 points. The senior from Eagle High School shot 42.9 percent (6-14) from the floor, 66.7 percent (2-3) from beyond the arc and was perfect in eight attempts from the free-throw line to go with five rebounds, one assist and two blocks in 34 minutes of action.
