Lenhardt ended the night with 18 points and a team-high 10 rebounds, while shooting 44.4 percent from the floor (8-18), including 66.7 percent from 3-point range (2-3). She also contributed a team-high three blocked shots and did not commit a single turnover.
Moore, a junior from San Francisco, Calif., led Fresno State to a 2-0 record last week with an 80-72 road victory over San Diego State and a 69-65 home win against New Mexico. She recorded 15 points and 11 rebounds to go along with three assists and three steals at SDSU, the Bulldogs first game as a member of the MW. Against the Lobos, Moore scored 22 points, grabbed seven rebounds and dished out three assists to lead the Bulldogs. She was 9-of-15 from the field (.600) and 3-of-4 (.750) from the free throw line.
