PULLMAN, Wash. – Colorado held Washington State without a field goal over the final 6 minutes, 9 seconds, but  couldn’t take advantage of the opportunity as the Cougars stayed unbeaten in Pac-12 Conference play with a 70-60 win over the No. 21/20 ranked Buffaloes Friday night at Beasley Coliseum.

Jen Reese led Colorado (11-5, 1-4) with 15 points but battled foul trouble, eventually fouling out with 3:22 left.

Washington State’s Dawnyelle Awa hit a 3-pointer to give the Cougars their biggest lead at 60-50 with 6:18 left. WSU (5-0, 11-6) didn’t score from the floor again, but was able to get to the free-throw line hitting 10 foul shots.

All Colorado could do was match on the scoreboard. The Buffaloes shot just 32 percent in the second half,  but even more costly, only 11-of-23 from the foul line.

Colorado got as close as five at 64-59 after a pair of Ashley Wilson free throws with 2:27 left, but the Buffaloes missed two 3-pointers and had a pair of turnovers on the next four possessions as the Cougars iced the game at the line.

Arielle Roberson had 13 points, eight rebounds and four assists. Wilson had six points and four rebounds.

Lia Galdeira and Tia Presley led Washington State with 17 points each.

Colorado will travel to play Washington on Sunday, Jan. 19, at 5 p.m. MT. The game will be televised live on the Pac-12 Network.
