Lenhardt played a major role in two first-half runs for the Broncos, scoring five points in a 9-0 run to open the game and following with three rebounds and the last five points of a 14-0 run that put BSU up 17 points with 10 minutes to go in the opening period.
Lenhardt battled through foul trouble and double teams at Weber State to record her second double-double of the season with 13 points and 10 rebounds. She contributed five points and two rebounds to a 14-2 run by the Broncos in the first half to break a nine-all tie.
