NORTHRIDGE, Calif. -- Hillary Carlson scored 18 points and grabbed nine rebounds to lead the Wyoming women's basketball team to a 63-55 win over Witchita State in the championship game of the Woodland Hills Holiday Inn Thanksgiving Basketball Classic Saturday.
Carlson and Aubrey Vandiver were selected to the all-tournament team. Carlson was named the tourney MVP.
"It was a tremendous performance against a good Wichita State team," Wyoming coach Joe Legerski said. "It came down to so many big plays from so many people. We always count on Hillary and Aubrey but I thought Bec (Campigli) gave us a big lift in the first half with 14 points and then the effort by Chaundra Sewell.
"The group as a whole and (how) they performed as a whole was a tremendous performance."
The Cowgirls will close out their road trip on Monday against UC Irvine.
