Lady Frogs push to be at the top of conference

Things couldn’t be going much better for sophomore forward Emily Carter and the rest of the Lady Frogs as they prepare to exchange blows with the University of New Mexico on Wednesday night in Daniel-Meyer Coliseum.

The team, in sole possession of second place in the Mountain West Conference, has won five straight conference contests and is inching closer to the regular season’s end.

Carter is fourth in the conference, scoring an average 15.4 points per game heading into tonight’s contest against the Lobos. She said she credits her teammates with her success in conference play.

“My teammates are doing a really good job of getting it to me when I’m open,” Carter said. “I think we have so many threats offensively that it’s kind of hard to key in on just one player.”

The Lady Frogs fell to the Lobos 75-63 when the two teams met last month.

“We did some things really well in that game and then we did some things that weren’t so great,” Carter said. “I think we’re going to be more focused this game.”

Carter said the five-game wining streak is a result of the team refocusing for the second half of conference play.

“We just know that we needed to push this last part of the season to prepare us for the conference tournament,” Carter said. “So that’s kind of what’s motivating us right now.”

Don’t look now, but the Lady Frogs will host the University of Utah, currently the first place team in the MWC, in the final game of the regular season on March 7.

The Lady Frogs will head to San Diego State University on Saturday for their final road contest of the regular season.
