Mikayla Ferenz scored a school-record 41 points as the Vandals defeated Northern Arizona 91-80 on Saturday night. Ferenz made nine 3-pointers to tie the school record held by teammate Talor Pierce. Ferenz finished 15-of-17 from the field and tied for the team lead with six rebounds.
“Unbelievable. Unbelievable, coach Jon Newlee said. “Every time I looked up the ball was going in. She gets 41 points and only shoots two foul shots. She was attacking hard, running hard in transition. Beth [Krause] and Taylor [Pierce] did a great job of finding her in transition. 21 assists tonight is a good number for us.”
The 41 points are tied for 14th in the NCAA this season, and the nine 3-pointers come in tied for second most in the nation. Idaho hit 18 3’s for a second consecutive game, tying a school that was set Thursday at Southern Utah.
Idaho (9-9, 4-3 Big Sky) rallied from an 11-point deficit.
