Boise State University freshman guard Keiahnna Engel of Anchorage enjoyed her best college game against UNLV.

She came off the bench to collect season highs with 14 points and 5 steals in a 75-66 loss during Mountain West Conference women’s action.

Engel, of Dimond High fame, added 5 rebounds in playing 27 minutes.

Here is an excerpt from the Boise State website:

Engel was huge for the Broncos in the rally attempt as she scored all 10 second half points in the final 10:17 of the frame. At one point she scored six consecutive points to bring Boise State from 10 down to within four points, the first time, with 3:38 on the clock. She used her athleticism to continually drive into the paint finishing the night going six-of-11 (54.6 pct.) from the floor and two-for-two from the free-throw line. It was also the third game for the Anchorage, Alaska, native to record five steals, a team and career-high (tie).
