The Boise State women’s basketball team had a tough loss against Carroll College 62 to 61 Saturday.
Bronco’s senior Shay Shaw led the team with a double-double of twelve points and twelve rebounds. Riley Lupfer also finished with 12 points.
The game was a sloppy one, each team committed 15 turnovers. Boise State shot 39.2 percent from the field, and Carroll shot 41.4 percent.
Carroll was able to pull a win out of the hat by making their long-range shots count. They finished the game 12 for 22 behind the arc. The game featured 15 lead changes and 11 ties, and neither team led by more than eight points throughout the game.
"I do think this was a wake-up call, but it is a teaching moment. Somehow we're going to have to find a group of people that want to perform down the stretch of games," said Boise State head coach Gordy Presnell. "The reason you play exhibition games is to figure out rotations and put yourselves in scenarios like this. Obviously, we would've liked to have won, but at least I have a better understanding of where we're at. We're starting at the bottom and have to work our way up,” said Head Coach Gordy Presnell.
Boise State now gets set for their season opener against Northwest Christian.
