The Wyoming women's basketball team continued its impressive late-season run, winning 55-51 against Nevada on Saturday for its seventh consecutive victory.

The game was close throughout, with the Cowgirls (16-5, 9-3 Mountain West) managing to grab an eight-point lead, the largest of the game, late in the fourth quarter.

Once again, senior Marta Gomez paced the team in scoring as she finished with 13 points. Junior Taylor Rusk added 12 points and freshman Quinn Weidemann 11, with senior Bailee Cotton grabbing 12 rebounds.

The Cowgirls will look to extend their winning streak to eight games Wednesday when they face UNLV in Las Vegas.
