Mountain West Announces Women’s Hoops Schedule
June 11, 2018

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The Mountain West announced today its 2018-19 regular season and tournament schedule for Women’s Basketball. For the sixth consecutive year, the Conference will use a scheduling format that allows each institution to play nine home games and nine road games.

Regular season league play will tip-off Jan. 2nd and conclude March 7th, and will determine how each institution is seeded for the 2019 MW Women’s Basketball Championship, which will be held March 10-13 at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas.

The Falcons will open the conference slate at New Mexico, Jan. 2, and will host Utah State, Jan. 5, in their first MW home game of the season.

2018-19 MW WBB CAPSULE
Air Force’s Kaelin Immel will return to the Falcons for her sophomore season. The MW 2017-18 Freshman of the Year averaged 16 points in 33 minutes a game in league play.

Boise State will have All-Mountain West selections Marta Hermida and Riley Lupfer back for the 2018-19 season. In 2017-18, the duo averaged 30 minutes or more per game and provided double-digit scoring for a Boise State squad that averaged 68.4 points per game en route to qualifying for the NCAA Tournament.

UNLV returns All-MW selection Katie Powell, who in 2017-18 averaged 17.2 points and 8.5 rebounds per game in Mountain West contests.

Wyoming’s Joe Legerski, the 2017-18 MW Coach of the Year, will have seniors Bailee Cotton and Marta Gomez return to the team. Cotton in 2017-18 was named to the MW All-Defensive Team and Gomez earned Sixth Player of the Year honors for the second season in a row. Wyoming opens conference play on the road against the MW tournament champion, Boise State.

Nevada won five straight contests from Feb. 27 – March 7 to advance to the program’s first ever MW championship game. The program would go on to win 19 games and make a run in the WNIT. Head coach Amanda Levens became the winningest first-year coach in program history.

New Mexico’s Jaisa Nunn led the Lobos high-power offense with her 18.3 points per MW contest, contributing to a team that had the 16th best offense nationally.
