After rallying past UC Davis on Thursday, the Rainbow Wahine gained separation early on Saturday and never looked back. A 16-5 run in the first quarter, combined with a 22-9 run in the second, gave the ‘Bows a 39-20 lead at halftime.
Atwell scored a game-high 21 points on an efficient 8-for-9 shooting performance from the field, including 3-for-4 from 3, finishing just two rebounds shy of a double-double. The Rainbow Wahine improved to 10-8 overall and 6-2 in Big West Conference play and stand alone at second place in the league standings.
