Nevada women’s basketball will complete its final regular season road trip on Saturday, taking on Air Force at 12 p.m.
Larry Burnett will have the call on 630 AM KPLY with a 20 minute pregame show prior to tipoff. Fans can also listen live online through the Varsity Network. The game will be available to watch on the Mountain West Network and live stats can be accessed through Stat Broadcast.
Saturday’s game at Air Force presents significant meaning for the conference standings and the Mountain West Championships seeding. A win would move Nevada into seventh place and the Pack would clinch the tiebreaker having won the head-to-head battle against Air Force. The Pack would clinch eighth place and the No. 8 seed with a loss.
Megan Ormiston was named to the College Sports Communicators Academic All-District Team.

One third of Nevada’s roster has posted at least one double-double this season, led by Thornton, Colorado, native Alyssa Jimenez with five.

Jimenez (18 points and 11 rebounds) posted her fifth double-double of the season on Jan. 19 against Colorado State and her third straight game with a double-double.
