RENO, Nev. - Trouble in the final five minutes sent Utah State's women's basketball team to its ninth straight loss as the Aggies fell at Nevada 64-54 in women's basketball action here Saturday afternoon. With the loss the Aggies fell to 1-14 overall and 0-5 in the Western Athletic Conference. Nevada improved to 5-12 and 1-4.

A Camille Brox basket gave USU a 50-48 lead with five minutes remaining in the game, but the Aggies were then out-scored 16-4 the rest of the way.
