For the second day in a row the Boise State women’s basketball team approached a school record Thursday, but Mallory McGwire fouled out three rebounds short of putting her name in the record book and Boise State fell 74-62.
A day after Jade Loville had a school-record 40 points in a Bronco victory, McGwire pulled down 20 rebounds to go with 19 points, but picked up her fifth foul with 7:39 left in the game, ending her pursuit of the record of 23 rebounds set by Ja’Lara Walker against San Jose State during the 2007-08 season.
Boise State (10-7, 7-7 Mountain West) fell two games behind the Rebels (11-8, 9-5) for fourth place in the league standings with four games to go.
Loville finished with 14 points for the Broncos, while Elodie Lalotte scored 10.

The Yotes (5-4) extended their winning streak to four games, their longest since 2016.
Anthony Pannullo was 3 for 5 with five RBIs in the opener, including a two-run single during a 6-run first inning. Pannullo added a sixth RBI in the second game and five Yote pitchers combined to hold Eastern Oregon to five hits while striking out 10.
