LAST TIME OUT
The Broncos got another well-rounded scoring effort, as 12 of the 13 team members who saw action scored at least three points. In the paint, the Bronco quartet of Joyce Harrell, Brooke Wheeler, A’Shanti Coleman, and Emerald Toth, sharing minutes in place of the injured Marijke Vanderschaaf, combined for 25 points on 10-of-14 shooting (71.4 percent).
The Cougars, with former Bronco head coach June Daugherty in her 11th year at the helm, are led by the play of Borislava Hristova (17.4 ppg, 4.8 rpg) and Alexys Swedlund (9.6 ppg, 2.5 rpg).
Boise State leads the all-time seres against Washington State, 19-18, and defeated the Cougars, 77-73 in overtime, last Dec. 4 in Pullman.
Should the Broncos come out victorious over the Cougars, it would not only mark back-to-back victories over Washington State, but would also be the first time since 2007-08 that Boise State registered two wins over the Pac-12 in a single season. That year, the Broncos defeated Washington (88-66) and Washington State (71-64) in back-to-back games on Dec. 7 and 9.
UNBEATEN AGAINST THE STATE OF WASHINGTON
OVER 50 PERCENT IN CONSECUTIVE GAMES
It is the first time that the Broncos shot at least 50.0 percent in consecutive games since Jan. 24 and 28, 2015 against Air Force (52.4 percent) and at Colorado State (50.0 percent), respectively.
Should the Broncos shoot at a 50.0-percent clip Monday against Washington State, it would mark the first such three-game streak since a four-game stretch from Dec. 19, 1992-Jan. 3, 1993.
SHAW DOUBLES UP...AGAIN
Prior to the game against Washington, Shaw had only previously hit double digits in rebounds once this season, and hadn’t scored more than 10 points in a game since going for 16 in the season opener against Northwest Christian on Nov. 10.
STEPPING UP INSIDE
In Vanderschaaf’s absence over the last two games, the quartet has combined to score 45 points and shoot 78.3 percent (18-for-23) from the field. Harrell, who made her first start of the season Sunday at Portland, has gone 8-for-11 (72.7 percent) with 16 points and seven rebounds over the two games, while Wheeler has posted 14 points with seven rebounds and shot 85.7 percent (6-for-7).
HODGINS ON FIRE
Dec. 3 at Eastern Washington, Hodgins scored a career-high 14 points, and went a perfect 6-for-6 from the line to help the Broncos ice their 61-57 win over the Eagles. On Dec. 10 at Portland, she scored a team-high 13 points with three rebounds and two assists.
STEADY GOES IT
For Hermida, who posted just the second triple-double in Boise State women’s basketball history back on Nov. 26 (with 22 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists against Corban), it was her fourth game this season in which she has scored at least five points with five rebounds and five assists.
On the year, Hermida, who has stepped up to take the leadership role this season, leads the Broncos with 11.9 points and 5.4 assists per game, while ranking second with 6.0 rebounds per game.
