RIVERSIDE, Calif. - Freshman Taylor Richards scored 18 points and Utah State's defense held UC Riverside scoreless in overtime to pickup the 70-63 extra-minutes victory against the Highlanders in women's basketball action here Saturday. The overtime was USU's first this year and just its second in as many seasons as the Aggies evened their overtime mark to 1-1 over the past two years.
"That was the best win of our program's history," said head coach Raegan Pebley. "Not that UC Riverside is a phenomenal team, but we executed and were able to perform under pressure. We had to work for everything we got tonight and it turned out in our favor."
The win was Utah State's fifth in seven games as it improved to 9-7 overall and 4-3 in the Big West, while UC Riverside fell to 8-7 and a similar 4-3 in league play.
Kemie Nkele led four Riverside players in double-figures with a game-high 20 points. Other Highlanders in double-digits were Agy Frankovits (14), Jodi Reber (12) and Casandra Reeves (11). Reeves also had 10 assists for the double-double.
Utah State also finished with 13 steals to Riverside's four.
The Aggies now return to Logan and prepare to face UC Irvine and Long Beach State next week.
