She also had 26 against Northwest Nazarene last Thursday.

Her seven 3s were a career high, one better than she had against Northwest Nazarene. She also had six 3s against Texas Permian-Basin in the season opener.

Green lifted her scoring average to 16.6 points per game.

Reimers made 6-of-15 field goals, including a beautiful turnaround jumper that gave UAF a 66-65 lead with 5:03 left.
