OGDEN -- Well, that's two.

The Weber State women's basketball team improved to 2-0 on the season with a 77-57 win over Montana Western University on Monday night at the Dee Events Center.

The Wildcats were led by senior forward Amanda Hughes who poured in 21 points and pulled down nine rebounds.

Two other Wildcats racked up double-digit scoring efforts. Sophomore Jalen Carpenter picked up her second double-digit game of the season, picking up 16 points and seven rebounds. Sophomore Regina Okoye added 15 points.

Weber State dominated in the paint and in transition. The 'Cats outscored Montana Western in the paint, 36-20, and 18-4 on the fast break.

The Wildcats shot 43.5 percent in the game after struggling a bit in the second half from the floor. Weber State's largest lead was 25 points, but Montana Western made a run midway through the second half to make the game competitive before the Wildcats ran away with it late.

Weber State had 17 steals in the game while turning in 19 assists, eight coming from Okoye.

Des Ramos turned in a solid performance from the point guard position as well, picking up nine points and five assists.

Weber State will now hit the road for the first time this season, traveling to Seton Hall for a 5 p.m. MST game on Friday.

The 'Cats will then play at Army on Sunday before returning home to take on the Air Force Academy on Nov. 26 at 5 p.m.
