Pierce guides UI by Utah State in WBI opener
MOSCOW, ID —
The Idaho Vandal women were the ones who got things going tonight (Wednesday) at Memorial Gym in the WBI first round against Utah State.
And the Aggies playing a little two-man game…and Lizzy Klinker has the visitors up seven but the Vandals counter. Taylor Pierce launching and hitting, that won’t be the last time we hear from her in this highlight. As a matter of fact, here she is again, the sophomore with the runner off glass, Vandals regain the lead at 19-18.
Second half, Vandals up 11 but Utah State just hanging around keeping it close. Nice finger roll from Katie Toole but Idaho would catch fire. Isabelle Hadden from distance, then it’s Mikayla Ferez for three! Idaho up 17.
Then in the fourth quarter, Vandals looking for that knockout blow…off the rebound Gerry McCorkell is gonna find Pierce again and she’s deadly.
Vandals will play the winner of Texas State and Eastern Washington in the second round of the WBI.
